About Me

I'm am currently travelling Southeast Asia with my girlfriend of 9 years. I am a musician and a truck driver in Canada, and my girlfriend is a tattoo artist. We visited Thailand for the first time 2 years ago, and completely fell in love with Southeast Asia, and knew we needed to see more if it.
I only recently heard of couchsurfing through another traveler we are travelling with, and knew it was the most amazing idea.
Our interests are many! But a few examples are:
Meeting new people, learning about new cultures and ways of life, sightseeing and experiencing new things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the idea of experiencing, firsthand, the ways of life and completely submerging myself in a new culture. I am also very excited to be able to meet new people, and show them my own way of life back in Canada when I can host my own travelers.


Meeting new people, music, art, trekking, games with other people (cards, dice, board games etc). Pretty much anything that's new to me, and includes friendly people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a lover of a huge repertoire of music, ranging from folk and blues, to punk and metal. I am a true lover of musical art, and am always willing to hear new or local stuff.
Movies are the same usually, but I find myself more drawn to classic movies from the 80s and 90s. (Aliens, Mad Max, Indiana Jones..)
Book interests are usually limited to Sci Fi and fantasy, like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been on tour with my band twice (2 years apart for each tour), across Canada.

Teach, Learn, Share

If there is one thing I can teach, I hope it would be that there are genuinely nice and decent people out there that love to completely surround themselves with positive people and new experiences.
I am always open to learning anything new that people are willing to teach. I am an open book, with a few pages blank, to fill in with these pieces of information.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love swapping stories and experiences with new people from all over the world, and show them first hand the friendliness of Canadians.
I have not experienced as much as most, but I feel I have done a lot, and love to share these stories. I also love to learn of more things to add to my bucket list from others.
