About Me

=== I am accepting guests on my boat "GOOD TIMES", it's on Salt Spring Island, which is a ferry ride from Vancouver ===
The boat is like camping, it's not so comfy but its an experience of it's own (for example I don't have a shower), and we use water from a container, I do have sleeping space for 4 - 6 people, couches, v-birth. Please bring your sleeping bag, that's the ideal scenario.
I hope you have read this part before sending a request.

On the boat you can stay, paddle, discover the island, have some peace.

CURRENT MISSION
Updated mission: after my mom's passing from Cancer, I'm being the change that I want to see, becoming a better self aware person and connecting with other humans.
To finish my first documentary about creating a new country! A country that will inspire people of the world and based on what people want!
Check my video on: www.newcountry.org

ABOUT ME

Would always support new ideas or projects, so if you have this thing you always wanted to do in life message me, I know how this can be it took me 8 years to file for a patent for an idea that I had, I love adventure and adore travelling and making films that inspire.

PHILOSOPHY

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
