About Me


taking Europe by storm!!


I love traveling and meeting new people. I'm an artist through and through. I always connect with creative-minded people, but am open to everyone.

I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. The westcoast of Canada in the 90s was an ideal place to grow up - very calm, peaceful & socially progressive. I went to Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, and studied Drama & Film.

After univeristy, I worked in film & television as an actor, and began performing live comedy.

Once I hit 25, I decided to just travel as much as possible over the next few years, and do Stand-Up Comedy all over the world.

So far, I have performed in 27 countries worldwide: Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, France, England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Luxembourg, Germany, Singapore, India, Austria, Slovakia, and more!

I love making friends all over the world, and thought CS would be a good way to do that.


Live your life with gratitude, and focus on the positive.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, but also plan to host when I eventually have my own place.

I go to CS events, and invite people to shows I might be doing in town.

I am always up for meeting up with people :)


About 10 times surfing.
Twice as a host for people in Vancouver, when I used to live there.


Comedy is my passion/obsession.
Traveling & experiencing the world.
Good coffee, food, culture.
Live music & theatre.
Red wine & long talks with good friends.
