About Me


I'm a contemplative person who is adverturous as well, witty, friendly, and love to get to know people.


I love to travel, have been from sea to sea in Canada, many parts of the United States, at least 10 trips to Europe. Enjoy cooking a special meal for friends, watching a movie with a buddy, love to explore new things and experiences.


In the past, I used to stay in hotels. Now I couchsurf and I must say that couchsurfing rocks! By staying with people in their homes you gain the opportunity to know other people, make friends, share experiences, and learn from their culture.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Almost every Sunday evening you'll find me at the Toronto gathering of couchsurfers. Have also attended many Toronto group events and parties, they're a blast!


I've couchsurfed in the United States, France and Switzerland and all my experiences were extremely positve.


I really enjoy playing various musical intruments,
singing in a community choir,
reading, watching movies, attending concerts, taking photos, and simply hanging out with friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed up and down Mount Pilatus in Switzerland, actually found my way out of a maze, seen the Northern Lights, acted as an extra in over 300 movie and television productions.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how to play several musical instruments, some French and German. Wish I could juggle and eat with chopsticks, but I'm hopeless at these activities.
