About Me

Athlete turned gear-head, turned auto mechanic, turned plumber, turned chiropractor. I have a thirst for knowing how things work, but my heart is in traveling and learning about other cultures. As a chiropractor, I'm especially interested in ancient forms of healing and hope to meet as many shaman healers in Latin America as possible when I drive to the the tip of South America. Journey begins 2019

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet fellow travel minded people, and help them travel through expensive Santa Monica on the cheap while I'm still here and share a true born and raised Santa Monica native that remembers the quiet Santa's Monica of the early 80s.


Traveling has become so important to me that I'm planning to live in my van as I drive as far south as I can in 2020 with my dog Mellow. No longer interested in chasing a life of luxury, I'm building a life of leisure.

Music, Movies, and Books

From Rage Again the Machine to 90s hip hop I listen to just about everything. Electronic to even country and of course classic rock. But I'll always love my childhood music from the 80s the most

Vagabonding, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Gideon's trumpet, the Secret

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rescued my amazing dog Mellow
I've seen the Earth from 12000 feet (>3600 meters) with nothing under me besides air when I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane. I still plan to get my skydiving license before the end of 2019 because of how much fun it was.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love sharing my favorite foods with people that have never tried them (family recipes or my favorite restaurants, fruits I love from traveling).

Santa Monica has free WiFi in some public parts of the city called 'citywifi' or something.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Automotive help, plumbing help, chiropractic help (or advice, depending on the state)

Countries I’ve Visited
