About Me


research fellowship in vancouver


I've been doing some research in vancouver for the year.
I've been trying to explore the PNW and BC every chance I get. Doing as much hiking as possible and about to try my hand at snowshoeing and skiing


make no plans and keep smiling when it all goes wrong

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
