About Me


To return all the wonderful hosting and favours people have given me on my travels around the world.


Well, I have traveled fairly extensively around many parts of the world, but mostly in Asia and Latin America. Around 30 countries overall including Kyrgyzstan,hitch-hiking in western China, staying in remote areas of Jamaica, waking up in bogs in Ireland, and getting lost in the mountains in Colombia just to name a few places.
I grew up around the Greater Vancouver area and most of my family still live around here.
I have recently put down some roots here, and would be happy to show some hospitality to any travelers coming this way. I feel very fortunate to have received much kindness and hospitality from many locals as I traveled to many places, and I would like to return the favour to the world.
In my free time i ll be out playing soccer, or ice hockey, or watching either, or on my bike, or hiking in the local mountains, or just chilling at home and enjoying my reggae collection.

Feel free to drop me a line.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My couch is open, and I am happy to help anyone coming this way.


Not much other than some locals I met by chance in Guatemala. They put me up in their place in Guatemala City and we had a great time.
Also, I use to DJ at a bar in Beijing when the local couch surfing group use to meet.
