About Me


I like 'to do' lists, especially if I do the things that I wrote down.

I'm prone to bad bike accidents, but still enjoy long bike rides.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to be far more active, but have stopped hosting in the past few years as I have had an influx of travelling musicians and friends on my couch.


I learned about couch surfing December 2006 at a Christmas market in Berlin when a group of Couchsurfers were doing Free Hus there. I hung out with them almost the whole day and had such a great time, that I joined Couchsurfing immediately.

A list of things I like in no particular order:

-Music. I work as a violinist and play in lots of bands in Vancouver. I was raised playing classical music but now mostly play in folk bands.
-Hiking, gardening, biking, mushroom picking, camping, glamping and other outdoorsy things
-Cooking, baking, reading, watching documentaries, coffee roasting, canning and preserving
-Exploring ways to live sustainably and live with more purpose and happiness (i.e. communal house projects, farmers markets, being conscious of how my actions affect society and the environment, alternative modes of transportation, and a vegetarian diet
-Dancing, funky clubs, small bars, house parties, concerts, and music festivals!
-carving and woodworking. I mostly make wooden spoons, spatulas, and cutting boards but am looking to learning to use a lathe.
