About Me


To flow with the great joy that is existence


Currently I work as an outdoor guide for middle schools with Grand Classroom; I take kids on multiday front country trip in Northern Arizona and Wyoming. While not pursuing in these endeavors, I like to redefine the person I am in a more dynamic way, love, laugh, surf, sing, do yoga, play acroyoga, eat lots of food, practice mindfulness, climb, read, travel, make art, dance at music festivals, barefoot in a redwood forests, watch sunsets in wilderness areas, and soak in hot springs. In between these activities, I contemplate and share my philosophy regarding human duality and unity and attempt to experience some of the many incredible and indescribable facets of human existence.


Hedonistic Altruism

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By bringing a smile, joy in my heart and appreciation for life everywhere I go.


Crashed on a few couches and put up a few people. Mainly I like the idea of it so I try to spread the word.
