About Me


I want to live as simply as possible. I want to love and be loved. I want to sail and bike everywhere. I want to be creative and inspired.


I love to be outside. I love to play games and drink beer (especially at the same time). I love to read. I love to cycle. I love to fly kites. I love to sing. I love meeting new people. I love to watch movies. Man, what a good life!


Dang, I think I am a nerd and a hipster.... I don't try to be! Its a slippery slope, but, I hear that the first step is recognition.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I am new to this project, and I hope to be able to participate by taking advantage of friends, old and new, across this small world. I would love to be able reciprocate and host people new to town.


I am new to couchsurfing. I have only heard wonderful stories and I am excited to give it a go.


Chess, film, books, bikes, coffee, beer, guitars and the outdoors. Come to think of it, I have a very wide range of interests..... Just try me!

Music, Movies & Books

Right now, as of April 13th 2011, I going to read, UBIK and Man In the High Castle by Philip K. Dick, I am going to reread LOTR, I am reading Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, I want to read some Murakami, I want to try to read some more Faulkner, I want to read Heart of Darkness and I was highly recommended the graphic novel "The Filth". Films?! Well, my favorite movies are The Passion of Jean of Arc, F for Fake, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Werner Herzog's: The Grizzly Man. I really love watching movies, I'm sure next time I am asked, this list will be totally different.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have painted several murals in my hometown. I have designed a menu for a restaurant. I have owned a small business. At the high point of my youthful skateboarding career, I ollied and 8 set! I have hitch hiked across canada. I have built several houses. I have biked around Lake Ontario. I just recently bought a sail boat!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a wide variety of cultural capital to learn from. I know a LOT of board and card games. I know how to make some pretty cool knots, (yes the rope/ string kind). I know how to do some wood working. Because I a love getting attention, I am willing to pass on any knowledge I have gained!
