Live a little bit
I'm an actor and director in Toronto and have spent the last 5 years running a theatre company here. Before I start working on upcoming projects I'm taking some time to travel and see some new corners of the world and hopefully practice my french. Family, friends and good food are all very important to me.
I'm still building one
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I want to meet people and get to know some cities. I want to share ideas and languages and show off my own city.
My major interest is in theatre; I love the power of living stories. I also have a strong sense for social justice issues that goes back in my family for generations; things don't change unless you change. I'm also a musician; guitar for a few years.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: I have pretty eclectic taste in music hip-hop, folk, jazz, rock. some favorites are Greg Brown, Stan Rogers, Ryan Adams, Sonic Youth, MIA, De La Soul, Nina Simone, Fela Kuti, and of course Bob Dylan.
Books: I've recently been into a lot of poetry; Al Purdy, W.H. Auden, Leonard Cohen. Novels: In The Skin of a Lion, East of Eden, Neapolitan series, The Sellout.
