About Me


Try to understand the idea of brail on drive-through banking machines...


I'm an easy going and active guy with interests in everything from photography to scuba-diving to Tango dancing to cycling to mountain-climbing...etc. I am an honest, clean & quiet heterosexual (not that there's anything wrong with other sexual preferences). I regularly volunteer my time for several different charities or help-organizations. My friends try to follow me but can't always keep-up! I can as easily be found around a campfire scaring wildlife with my guitar, as at a convention center or festival of some kind. I love all animals but am unfortunately allergic to them. I enjoy the social scene, but I crave solitude every once in a while. I enjoy learning new ideas and finding what things I have in common with others. Story-tellers are a big hit with me, as long as they're true. Pet peeves gravitate around litter-bugs; being late; disrespect; dishonesty; and despise toilet paper when it isn't placed to roll over the top (Tom Cruise syndrome). I can't hold much alcohol, so my smile gets there at little expense... but thats good, right? I'm a coffee bug and sugar bug and enjoy a nice cold beer on a hot day. I get up in the morning happy, and go to bed at night happy. "Live & let live" is my moto, but you gotta be able to laugh at yourself.


"The highway of life is full of flat squirrels that couldn't make-up their minds".

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I exchange travel-chatter for a couch, and I make it a point to promote the CS experience with whom ever I meet.


So-far, I have received many great people from Paris for a week-end, and also couch-provider from Ottawa. I myself have surfed Ottawa, of course, and spent a fantastic week in Quebec City, Ottawa, Ft-Lauderdale and Sherbrooke, just to name a few.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

If saving a life (three times) doesn't top the chart, I'll just have to wait & pick from the best 100.

Teach, Learn, Share

What I Can Share With Hosts

Ask me to bring something from my area of the globe! This will avoid useless or undesired gifts. Other than that, I bring a slew of giggles & laughter, along with maybe a few of my life's experiences which might be usefull.
