About Me


To spread love and appreciation for Reese's peanut butter cups.


I have a lot of interests but only barely scratch the surface of one before another grabs my attention.

I`m more city than country. I`d rather navigate through a crowd than through a forest. That being said most of my favorite views and vacations have been remote locations.

I love meeting new people and many times feel more at ease in a place where no one knows my name as opposed to a place where everybody knows who I am.


Enthusiasm is contagious.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

movies- When Harry Met Sally, Like Water for Chocolate, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Hana Yori Dango, Ocean`s 11, Anchorman, and Zoolander. given, they`re not the most inspiring movies, but they are movies i can watch over and over again.

music- from punk rock to J-Pop, my tastes are all across the board. i`m currently searching for good Japanese artists. If you have any recommendations send them my way!

books-Running With Scissors, Dry, Possible Side Effects, Barrel Fever, The Kite Runner, Harry Potter, and Lamb, the Gospel According to Biff, Christ`s Childhood Pal

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing sights these eyes have seen: sunset off of Gate's Pass in Tucson, AZ, a thunderstorm over Tokyo from the view of Tokyo Tower, ARASHI's 5x10 tour at the Sapporo Dome, hanami at Hirosaki-koen

Teach, Learn, Share

peanut butter + chocolate = best combination ever.
throughout my travels I`ve found many people were not aware of this wonderfulness and thought the idea sounded disgusting. they were quickly schooled in the deliciousness of the peanut butter cup.
