About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To pay it forward!

ABOUT ME

I like to help people however I can. Lately, it has been nice hosting couch surfers to pay it forward. I love meeting new people and am always up for more friends :)

PHILOSOPHY

Everything happens for a reason. Always do what feels right deep down inside of you. Never waste your energy on regret.

Favorite sayings: "i'll try anything twice" and "yeah, why not?"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I give tours any time and I host every now and then. We are 3 guys in our place, so it makes hosting a little more difficult because it has to pass the approval of all three of us. Either we have to know far in advance or can take someone in if it's an emergency. We are all awesome though!

I really love giving tours so hit me up anytime for a coffee and walk around the North Shore and/or Gastown.

I like to help travellers as much as I can as I was helped a lot while I was doing it. It's all about paying it forward :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Only amazing experiences. I have actually gone out of my way to go back to some of the countries I've visited just to see some couchsurfing hosts of mine again. My hosts have always turned into friends I want to see again :)

Interests

Maintaining balance. I'm super dorky (I design video games, come on!) so I have to balance it out with less dorky things, such as Guitar, Video Games, meeting people from all over, going to the gym and for hikes, and riding my motorcycle around. I love meeting people and heading to the bar to meet more people with them. Beer is a great way to bond! I love anything mellow, but I am always in the mood to party. I love anything dorky/awesome, so feel free to speak nerdy to me (LoTR, Star Wars, etc...) but I'm also into keeping fit, so if you're into running/hiking, I'd be down for giving you a tour through the mountains.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: anything you can make an ass of yourself dancing to. I love all songs old and awesome, indie... and French.

Movies: too many to list... in general, I love foreign films (mainly french and german films), comedy, NOT the notebook or anything related to the notebook... oh, and of course, Disney!

Books: classic novels.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitch hiked through the outback from Adelaide to Darwin then over to Broome. Didn't know where I was going to sleep, or how far we'd make it in a day. Just lived day by day with a backpack and some food.

Traveled Europe for 6 months and met so many wonderful people.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you let me stay with you.. I can teach you some dishes to make and if we go dancing, i'll teach you the greatest dance moves in the world.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden

Countries I've Lived In

Australia, Canada
