About Me

I founded a personal development company called The School For Men in 2014, where I helped hundreds men from all over the world to reconnect with their heart, their power, and their voice to create powerful lifestyles filled with freedom and fulfillment.

Currently I'm working in the music industry, building out a career for a very gifted singer-songwriter.

I value Love and Creation and look to amplify these two everywhere I go and in everything I do.

My life's mission is helping to build a world where everyone and everything can thrive (including the ecology upon which the economy rests upon).

Yes, it is a seemingly impossible task, but I've been inspired by befriending thousands of people who have the same mission and I believe that as we continue to share knowledge and wisdom at an exponential rate freely across the internet, many things can shift toward the better in a short period of time.

We are in for quite a ride ahead into the future. Honored to be alive with you in these times.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've hosted and surfed many times. Every person who I've met through CouchSurfing has turned out to be an amazing human being. I truly love this community for what it has done globally on making the world a more connected place.

From March 2012 to October 2014 I lived on the road for 31 months as a digital nomad, many times staying with amazing hosts and travelers like you.

CouchSurfing has changed my life for the better many times.
