About Me

Just moved to Malmö and am embarrassing it with open arms.


I am a man with many dreams, desires and goals with too little time to complete all of them. Hopefully with the time I do have as well as a little bit of of enthusiasm I can complete a fair amount. I have my moments of being an introvert as well as my an extrovert. I am a self described oximoron. But at the end of the day it all turns out to be a fairly likeable person... at least I think so. You should find out for yourself though.


"I'm not afraid of dying...I'm afraid of not trying."

I all to often find myself sitting on my ass rather than going out there and living. So instead... here I am!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My couch will be given as I hope other will give theirs to me. Comming to South America, Brasil in particular, has shown me a whole other side to the community and I hope to enjoy it more, not only here, but also bring that back to Oakland and Missoula


I had my first experience in 2008 in Ethiopia and loved it. Since then I have also surfed in London Brazil, Colombia, and Vietnam as well as hosting a couple of people in Oakland and Missoula. Now I am surfing in Sweden. (Let me know if you have an opportunity to meet up.)

Music, Movies, and Books

ALL music has its time and place... in my head. Favorite book is "Leaving" but also enjoy 11 minutes as well as a few others by Paulo Coelho and anything by Nick Hornby.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the Nile River was pretty amazing, but more so just participating in life and meeting our fellow man as I travel.
