About Me


Good art, good eats, good music, good people!


I enjoy chatting over coffee, watching live music, wandering cities, juggling and circus, swing and other partner dancing... nature, the ocean, and some of its creatures.

I like word games and terrible math jokes... discussions about anything and debate over nothing. Games in general make me happy! If you play card games we will get along.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I've had many great experiences using Couchsurfing as a way of quickly getting the vibe of a city - I really love meeting new people in new places, and learning where the best coffee places, crazy hiking trips and the best dive bars are located.


Alex in Copenhagen - 1 night, 4 people!
Anders in Stockholm - a few nights, just me!
Arthur in Amsterdam - just me, a couple nights - one awesome outing!
Kena and the Lorax crowd - 4 of us got stuck on a roadtrip and were readily integrated in this amazing student house for a week!
Victor & Mathilde in Pondy - Stayed with them while getting SCUBA ceritifed.
Tamas in London - A few nights with Tamas was lovely, very kind a generous.

Music, Movies, and Books

I still love kids books, and could probably catch any off handed reference to Dahl, Korman and/or Seuss.

Music is a lot of folksy stuff, and some rock-ier, some blues-ier and some jazz-ier. Depends on the mood.

Movies: I have a tendency to fall asleep in every movie I've ever seen. If I had to describe my favourite style of film I guess... "clever" might do it. Drama, comedy, heist-films. All can be great if they are well written/thought out. I also like old school slapstick comedy (a là Charlie Chaplin/Marx Brothers).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to the National Circus School (in Montreal) for a year!

Teach, Learn, Share

I could probably teach anyone how to juggle.

I know a lot 'about' programming, but am no expert... definitely have a lot to learn - but enough to share!

I'd love to learn how to play better chess!
