About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Peace on Earth, one person at a time

ABOUT ME

Hey there! My name's Ryan, born and raised in toronto, but have lived in Montreal, Zurich and Melbourne. In my opinion couchsurfing is the best way to travel as you get to meet some locals and get to know the real city, as opposed to just the tourist attractions (though those can be amusing as well). I like eating local specialties as much as possible and of course any local beverages. These days I'm becoming more aware of the Earth around me and my place in it, sustainability and getting rid of this oppressive economic system is my focus at the moment - small challenge i presume..I always try to remain open-minded, but I have been told that I am quite skeptical - I call it being a critical thinker but perhaps you can make the call..On that note, I hope to meet you soon!

PHILOSOPHY

Make the world a better place by sharing it, not keeping it to yourself

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of my most recent highlights was jumping off the Versazca dam in Ticino, Switzerland. The dam is 220 metres high and was the same dam 'James Bond' jumped off at the start of Goldeneye, amazing!

Teach, Learn, Share

I've got a lot to teach based on my life experiences. From graduating university, finding work and travelling extensively I can offer much in the way of guidance. I'm also looking to learn anything i can about the people i meet and the way of life they lead...
