About Me

Hello friends!

My name is Andre, I'm from Canada and I work in the US. I'm spending the winter in fabulous Mexico City and looking to meet new friends here. If you think you might be able to host me please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm a very conscientious, helpful and courteous guest.

Namaste and keep it gangster!
-Andre

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When not Traveling: It's such a great community and a chance to meet interesting people from all over the world. Possibly even a way to catch inspiration for new adventures.
I actually hosted my first guest in Summer 2020. It felt nice to give back after all that good karma.

When Traveling: I think CS provides a richer, more authentic experience for me while on the road. I have met seriously great people who have given me unique perspectives on the local area.

And as a guest I am outgoing, skilled, friendly and helpful so there are no shortage of ways for me to give back.

Interests

  • yoga

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite books are historical fiction such as Aztec by Gary Jennings, as well as James Clavell's Asian Saga (Shogun, Tai-Pan, etc...)

I really like the work of Robert Greene as well.

My favourite films are The Good The Bad & The Ugly, Mad Max: Fury Road, The World's End and The Dirt (Motley Crue biopic)

Musically I listen to a lot of things I'm trying to learn to play (I travel with my electric guitar an amp). I love Tupac, Motley Crue, Johnny Cash, Fiona Apple...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I circumnavigated the globe back in 2011-2012.
I got robbed four days into it and after I got over feeling sorry for myself I decided to soldier on despite having lost all of my equipment, documents, etc.
It was amazing. No longer encumbered by a heavy bag and lots of gucci gear I didn't need I moved a lot quicker and I realized that ‘he who wishes to travel happily must travel lightly.’

Teach, Learn, Share

I love playing guitar. I would be happy to teach and learn. I have met many phenomenal players in my travels and each has imparted something of value.

Also I teach jewelry-making, yoga, breathing exercises, improv, etc...

I worked with children in Germany, Honduras, Nicaragua and Canada so very often I have to break new skills down to their core teachable components.

Some kids at the last place I crashed taught me how to ‘loon whistle’. I’m not good at it but I would be happy to ‘learn you all I know.’ 😜

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you like OUTLAW COUNTRY and twangy-ass guitar noises I will rock your socks off!

Conversations are important to me. I listen actively, stare deeply and speak truthfully.

I’m strong, competent with tools, and helpful.
