About Me

I am an ex-cig smoker, ex-drinker (causes muscle cramping), and don't do hard drugs. Respectful, considerate, helpful, funny, outgoing, honest, and have "been there, done that" in far too many ways it seems!

Canadian born female, wise enough to know what not to do and smart enough to enjoy life continually anyway!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I did several workaways in Costa Rica, USA and Mexico, was home in Canada for a few weeks and now overseas for 3 months.

I have been hosted twice and have had probably hundreds of people stay with me over the years but not through websites.

I am wanting to travel the world to learn new things, visit places and share life experiences with new people over/with food, music, comedy, coffee and activities; but need to do be able to afford it---so couchsurfing is an awesome win-win!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music- a good "bounce-able" beat is almost a must! (Classified, Hilltop Hoods, Pitbull, Elicit)

Tv and Movies- don't watch tv or movies much but prefer comedy (Big Bang Theory, Jeff Dunham, Simpsons, Gabriel Iglesias, Danny Bhoy)

Books- not much time to read as have been busy writing travel guides myself but used to love Tom Clancy, Dean Koontz, etc. I also wrote a budgeting book for all things money, food, time; 2 travel tip guides and a cookbook.

I have my own website and associated media sites which keeps me pretty occupied lately!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

OmG only one?! Lmao. If i had to pick i would say being a (underground hiphop) music promoter for a few years (2009-13) and all that life entails! I am not out to impress people as what is amazing to one is mundane to another!

Teach, Learn, Share

Life experiences including where to go, what to do, and how to do it as cheaply as possible; funny stories; great conversation; amazing cooking, awesome music and good times!!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Will make you laugh, cook great food, drag you out for a walk or to the beach, inspire you to get more of what you want in life, help with money/food/time issues, travel tips, clean up after myself, be respectful and considerate...did i mention make you laugh? 😉
