About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to see the world from the perspectives of the people that live around it; experience and capture cities with locals and other travelers.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in a small town an hour outside of Toronto and was born in Alberta, Canada. I llive in Brisbane Australia and before that was living in Toronto. I'm a filmmaker and music lover. I work as an editor/animator/photographer. Check out my website below if you want to see some of my work.

I've traveled around Europe, Asia, Australia, and all over the US. I love good movies, music, and TV shows. I appreciate good art and am open to new things. I love to go to festivals with friends and meeting new people. I play a few instruments and enjoy DJ'ing and producing music in my spare time.

I know how to speak fluent French from public school immersion when I was younger and am always glad to practice it. I'm a big fan of all sports in general, but hockey would have to be my favourite. Sometimes I also follow soccer, football, and basketball - depends who's on strike and whether playoffs are on. I'm drawn to learning new things and meeting new people and am open to new experiences.

PHILOSOPHY

I want to show people how fun and easy traveling can be when you let go of the things holding you back. Life is Chaos, say yes and be kind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's an amazing way to meet someone local and see a new place from their perspective.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My favourite place to go is Black Rock City, the home of Burning Man and the coolest city in the world in my opinion. It only exists for a week and is full of love and positivity. It is place that's an overall metaphor for living in the moment and enjoying things while you can.
