About Me

I love to travel (duh). I live with my partner, and kids, and dog, but there is plenty of room. I go to Portland state university sometimes and work the rest. I have lived in Portland mostly my whole life and know a lot about it, though it's changing rapidly.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to travel but I have a budget. I also have had trust in making new friends my whole life and thought this would be a good way.


I'm an open person, and I like that to encompass my interests. Incorporating more people into whatever it is.

  • cooking
  • board games
  • hiking
  • backpacking
  • philosophy

Music, Movies, and Books

Nothing doesn't interest me except horror.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Deployed to Afghanistan and I loved the country and people.

Teach, Learn, Share

Cooking, backpacking, dancing, and how to learn a language easily.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'll cook, and discuss philosophy, politics, music, religion, and pop culture.

Countries I’ve Visited

Afghanistan, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine
