About Me


I drink a lot of tea. I hike nearly everyday in the summer. In Canada I run a wilderness hostel where we have no electricity and no running water, so chances are that I'll find your house absolutely amazing! I'm more of a listener than a talker. I'd rather go to a quiet cafe than a loud club. Although I am a big fan of live music. I can't swallow pills. I don't listen to Pearl Jam or any Pearl Jam derivative. I eat really slowly.


All you can take with you, is that which you've given away.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I generally only have the ability to do meet-ups seeing as I run a hostel. Allowing couch-surfers to stay for free wouldn't be fair to my guests. But if I have time I'd love to show you around Jasper and hopefully set you up with some adventures to do in the area.


I have been really fortunate with the csers I have met so far, and I´ve also had some terrific hosts!

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how it's totally worth it to throw on every piece of clothing you have just to make your back-pack RyanAir carry-on friendly...bastards.

I'd love to make you dinner! Or breakfast? I make world-famous crepes. World-famous because they have been eaten by people from all over the world. That counts right?
