About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Just a kid excited to meet new people and travel around the world. Although we're all supposed to be adults now, I don't really feel like one and probably won't till I get into the "real world" after school. Fortunately that's not happening for another 2 years or so. I have a sense of humour where I find many (sometimes inappropriate) things funny. Right now I'm in Brisbane on a year-long exchange for school at UQ. My greatest talent is the ability to fall sleep (while being unable to sleep in late--bizarre) under any circumstance, such to the point that friends think that I have some sort of disorder, possibly sleep apnea?!

PHILOSOPHY

Live to learn and learn to live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Two couchsurfs in Auckland and Brisbane.

Interests

I like to run and I'm planning to do the Gold Coast Marathon 2007. I love playing sports, though I'm not great at any particular sport, I don't suck too bad either. I like to play poker, and am fairly good at it. I have an interest in French after a summer program spent learning it, both the language and the Quebecois (Canadian French) culture. I like to keep up with business news and plan to do a minor in Commerce at school. I recently started learning swing dancing and now demonstrate a level of extremely poor competence at it. I've also been picking up salsa dancing. Obviously I'm also interested in travelling and would like to do a lot more of it in the future. And because I'm Canadian, I like hockey (Vancouver Canucks)!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favourite books include Tuesdays With Morrie (Mitch Albom), the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and The History of Love (Nicole Krauss). I read a lot of fiction du jour, though I'd probably read anything really that was recommended to me. Also read all of John Grisham's novels. Currently reading The Best People in the World (Justin Tussing).

My favourite movies are Braveheart, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, Armageddon, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Matrix, The Big Green, The Lion King, Spider-Man 2, Love Actually, Garden State, Blast From The Past, Rounders, The Girl Next Door, and Goodfellas.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived and worked out in the Rocky Mountains for a summer and managed to make a road trip back home to Vancouver along the best stretch of highway in Canada. Travelling New Zealand.
