About Me

I currently live in Saint Louis, Missouri where I am a dancer in Resilience Dance Company, help manage a small Microbrewery, and give walking tours for the Missouri History Museum! My interests tend to vary obsessively between different things, whether it be linguistics, poetry, dance, photography, food culture, history, and many more. I very much enjoy getting to discover new cities and environments and getting to meet new people along the way! Generally a pretty easygoing but also adventurous kind of guy. Down to hang out if our schedules allow it, but also very comfortable on my own as well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I've discovered that the best part of traveling is the people you meet and experience new things with along the way. Couchsurfing is a great way to allow this to happen!


I love traveling, experiencing new places and meeting the people within it. I enjoy dancing and exchanging ideas about art and life. I mostly follow a plant based diet and greatly enjoy exploring local plant based food scenes and trying lots of different beers while I'm at it! Reading, philosophizing, moving the body, going on long walks of exploration, getting up early to watch the sunrise! Also enjoy cooking!
