About Me


Host travellers, play music, do some good.


I'm a 20-something dude who's been thirsting for adventure for a while and can't seem to get enough. In the last five years I've been on a backpacking trip through a (small region of) Europe, alot of Asia and toured with various punk bands through the better part of North America.

Very easy going, love to have fun and looking forward to meeting new people. I love new stories and view points - even if I can't agree, just to hear life through another perspective is such an enriching experience (especially in an age where communication is becoming less and less personalized). There's no one right way to live, except to not live at all!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can currently host up to 2 travelers and am down for hangs and can show people around Toronto or even just give a suggestion list of places to check out depending on what yr into.


Couch surfed in China and Vietnam and had amazing times with both. Looking to return the favour and provide a place for people to experience Toronto.
