About Me


See the World


I moved to the DC area from Iowa in January 2008. It's quite a change, but I really enjoy living here.

I have a five minute walk to work at the U.S. patent office.


Enjoy life, learn as much as you can, make a positive difference in the World.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had 4 official couchsurfers who have all been great. I've also gone to several of the Washington DC couch surfing events.


I haven't had time to do any traveling lately. I hope to do some couch couchsurfing in South America or Europe this year.


Traveling, music, movies, exploring all the sites around DC, hanging out friends

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a wide variety of music from older musicians like Bob Dylan and Neil Young to recent bands like Arcade Fire and Wilco.
I enjoy reading but haven't read much lately. I'm currently reading Bonfire of the Vanities.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I studied abroad for three weeks in London, and three months in Swansea, Wales. I got to live and take classes with British and other international students and travel around Britain and Europe.

Countries I’ve Visited
