About Me


Love meeting new people and having fun. Meet me, and have fun. Or don't and wish you did. I used to have this couch that was so comfortable that my roommate made it into his bed.


I'm living in San Francisco right now working as an artist and director of a gallery. Trying to find the right balance between producing exhibitions and creating my own work. I typically work in sculpture and video/animation but tend to also do longer term projects that incorporate other mediums.

I love living in the city and enjoying everything it has to offer with art and culture, and food of course. On the weekends though I typically try to get out of town for a bit and explore around the bay area of if it's summer time I'll head up into the mountains to camp or down to Santa Cruz to surf.


I love traveling, both domestically and internationally because seeking out new experiences means seeking out new ways of understanding both the world around me as well my part in it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The best experiences I've had traveling have always been centered around the people I meet. They've provided me with a level of insight and understanding of place that can't be had while staying in a hotel and looking in a guide book. To see the sights can be important, but even more important is understanding and experiencing someone's world view or life experience through the place that shapes them.


Couch surfed in Brazil and had a great experience. As well as hosted a number of surfers in San Francisco at my place.
