About Me


To travel as much of Australia as I possibly can in two months!


I am from Alberta, Canada however I have been living and teaching English in Ulsan, South Korea for the past 7 months! I plan to head to Melbourne, Australia at the end of August and travel up to Cairns over the course of a couple months before heading back to Canada!


I live life passionately and love to explore new cultures, perspectives and ideas!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm currently researching and exploring ways to travel Australia on a budget and hoping to add "couch surfing" to the list of my experiences!


Some of my interests include: reflective writing, singing, traveling, exploring new places and people, public speaking (one day I'd like to do some mad research and have my own segment on TED)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I have done would have to be experiencing life in Korea. Independently hopping on a plane and committing to a year submerged in another culture! I have met amazing, inspirational people. I have had the opportunity to learn about myself through many experiences and people that I have met!

Teach, Learn, Share

When I am at home in Canada I work primarily with the indigenous population; advocating, supporting, and learning with each youth and family I encounter. I would love to learn more about the indigenous population in Australia, the culture and the similarities and differences between aboriginal Canadians and aboriginal Australians.
