Join Couchsurfing to see Crow ’s full profile. It’s free!
Hey! My name's Crow, and I'm currently living in the Rosemont neighbourhood in Montreal (Mohawk territory). I'm an anarchist punk, circus freak, and animist.
I'm an adventurer. When I was 16, I hitchhiked from Ottawa to the West Coast, . From the time I was a little boy, I always had a sense that the options provided by this society were fake, and that a secret world of authentic experience was being hidden somewhere behind a facade. It has taken me a lot of searching, but I have found what I was looking for, and discovered what I always sensed the absence of. I'm not searching anymore. I'm doing what I can to create the kind of culture that I want to be a part of.
I've travelled all over Turtle Island, from the Yukon to Tofino to Newfoundland to Chiapas and Guatemala. My travels have given me a great love and a deep respect for this land.
And love to me is not merely a feeling, but a desire to give. So I do my best to fight for the wild, for the water, for the animals, forest, air and Mother Earth. If humanity is to have a future worth living, we must take action now to prevent the degradation of the natural world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have lived in various collective houses since 2013, and during that time my roommates and I have hosted many many many many guests.
I began CouchSurfing in the spring of 2010 and since then I've couchsurfed in Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, Buffalo, Dallas, Austin, Mexico City, Veracruz, and many other places. Nothing compares to being introduced to a city by someone who knows it well.

Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Rock'n'roll is in my soul. I am a punk rocker and driving, chaotic, fast and loud rock'n'roll is what I love most. But I've got a spectrum of music that I like to listen to, from hyper and manic (the Stooges) to heavy and dark (Joy Division).
Also, I like mythically freaky figures like Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Captain Beefheart, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Fela Kuti, Nina Hagen, Daniel Johnston, Nina Simone, Iggy Pop, etc.
I could go on. I love music! Everything that speaks to me on that primal level where I just know that the artist or band is putting their very soul(s) into their art.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One thing I did was hitchhike from Ottawa, Ontario to the Yukon when I was 18. I had decided to visit my friend who was living there at the time but didn´t tell her I was coming because I wanted to surprise her. It took me 11 days and I lost my backpack along the way (it fell out of the back canopy of a pick-up truck), so I arrived in Dawson City with nothing but the clothes on my back. I walked downtown, bought a bag of chips and sat down in a parking lot. I didn´t have Justine´s number, address, or any way of getting ahold of her. Just then a car pulled into the parking. Who should happen to get out? Justine! She was surprised all right.
