About Me


the everlasting pursuit of happiness


I do my best to live as compassionately with the earth and others as possible. I often make jokes and love to laugh, but can sometimes be quite the introvert as well. I love to learn new things, ANYTHING! I am and always have been a sponge for new experiences and ideas and ways of doing things. I love to explore outdoors and typically that is where you'll find - or lose me. I also lose myself quite easily in books of all kinds, and am currently working on writing two of my own.


making myself better... making other people better

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a couple of times while I was in Guatemala and actually able to. I have not surfed yet with anyone, but am hoping to rectify that when I head to Nelson, BC, which I feel strongly drawn to for no particular reason. I tend to follow my instincts as best I can, despite being a hyper-rational person, and Nelson is where I feel I'm being led at the moment.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Flying faster than the sunset and seeing it backwards, mastering the basics of trapeze, the view of Lake Atitlan from my balcony.
