About Me


continue working on seeing 100 countries in this lifetime


I am an only child, who wants something out of life that cannot be obtained by buying house, living to work and working to live.

I'm considered to be creative, somewhat comical and honest to a point. I want more out of life then just going through the motions, like all of us CSers do. I have a huge bucket list and would love to chat with you about what else to put on it!


I want to live life seeing something new everyday. Never feeling stuck and always being challenged and believing the impossible is possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed only once in Italy and it was a tremendous experience. I have hosted one Brit and he was awesome so cmon down to Winnipeg, while I'm still here. While living on Maui this winter I hosted Ben in Lahaina and it was awesome again - I love this community!


Luca was a fantastic host, hoping to surf again soon! I forgot to even log onto this site on my 2 month trip in SE Asia earlier this year. I also found lotsa friends on Maui from CS and was able to host someone too!

I have met some other wonderful people from CS for sure just for coffee, or even through messaging on the site.


Writing, reading, hockey, takin' in the arts and attending festivals. I am honestly always planning my next trip too.

I love using different avenues of communication, I'm starting to really like the idea of spoken word and photography.
