About Me


To radiate positive energy into the lives of those around me.


I work with diesel generators but my life goal is to own a sustainable farm that's off the grid. I am a vegan, and love to cook. Im very open minded and enjoy listening to other peoples point of view.


I am on a Spiritual journey to understand and spread truth. Nature is more cooperative than competitive and so it is vital to the evolution of humanity to work together rather than individually.
Couchsurfing is a great medium to pay it forward and meet worldly people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have traveled to several countries and appreciated any source of hospitality that was directed my way and would like to be able to give that back to travelers in need.


I started hosting people in 2014 I have had the luxury of meeting dozens of great people and new found friends. I have surfed only once and can only say great things. I am always interested in meeting fellow travelers who happen to be where I am at that point in time.


I'm a huge Winnipeg Jets hockey fan. You can always find me watching their game when it's on and would gladly explain Canada's game to anyone.
There is so much of the world you can't learn about from a book, class or the internet. Get outside, be active, talk to people, make friends and don't ever be afraid to make mistakes.
