About Me


I work in a bookstore, play folk music, write songs and stories. I'm a big nerd about music and lit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't currently have the space to host anyone in my tiny bachelor apartment, but I'm hopeful that I'll be in a position to do so within the next few months. I love Halifax, where I live, and I'm eager to show any visitors my favourite things about it!


I used couchsurfing to find a place to stay in Bangor, Maine, on my way to New York City, and I had a great experience! Since then I've enjoyed showing visitors some of my favourite places in Halifax.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Halifax is amazing! Seeing the northern lights, too. And Whitehorse!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you all about how wonderful Halifax is. I can especially tell you all about the fantastic musicians here. In fact, if I get to sleep on your couch, I will totally bring you a mixed cd! And I'll probably make one for you if you come to Halifax, too, as that's just something I love to do.
