About Me


Helping the world to be a better place


I am a 39 years old Canadian. I have lived abroad for 13 years, I am back in Canada now

I am very interested in the environment and solving the planet problems.

I am particularly interested in food production.

I am currently a website designer.


I have learned that to keep a positive aspect in life helps in a great way to achieve what we want.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have met the founder of couchsurfing in Bangkok 3 years ago by coincidence when i went to a couchsurfing meet up. I have met great people here.


I have tried couch surfing in Hong Kong 1 year ago. It was great, I went out with my host during the evening, she was very generous.


I have spent the last 2 years trying to work on the planet's problems. I have met hundreds of people in Thailand, from politicians, NGOs, journalist, business peoople, etc, It's been quite a discovery.

It lead me the the discovery of the transition town movement started in the UK. Oil is a finite resource, and it's great that many people are working to transition to this new reality.
