About Me

I'm an easygoing guy, super open-minded. I try to value what I have without taking life too seriously. I love going out and socialising, exploring the outdoors, or just chilling with movies, books, or good company. Other than that, I guess it's all about laughing as much as possible, staying true to myself, and always encouraging debate and self-improvement.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To make traveling even more rewarding, ideally for both myself and everyone else.


I adore cinema, literature, yoga, live music, and travel.

I also feel pretty positively about sunshine, rum, hiking, philosophy, coffee, cooking, history, architecture, absurdly spicy food, and typewriter fonts..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hitch-hiked and couchsurfed down the beautiful west coast of the USA after leaving my job in Canada. An eye-opening and hilarious adventure.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm desperate to improve my Spanish and my yoga. I'm not sure what I could specifically teach, but I'll happily share anything I own, know, or have experienced..

What I Can Share with Hosts

Definitely an open-minded and respectful attitude, and hopefully some crazy conversations, laughs, and adventures.
