About Me


Hakuna Matata and see the world!


I am pretty outgoing and energetic. Love my friends, love my life and the outdoors. I am a competitive athlete but make sure I am doing things for the enjoyment and fun in them. I will try everything and am up for anything. You only live once!!!


I love adventure and I think it is important to experience as much of the world that you can. My favourite way to see the world is when I am human-powered. Biking, hiking, skiing etc. are the best means of transportation because you can be at one with nature.
I love meeting new people and experiencing new things in life. I like to really embrace every moment and live with no regrets.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do not have a couch, but when I get one and have roommates that allow for it I will give back and host. For the time being I am starting to surf! I am also always willing to go out for a coffee and tour anyone around! Meeting new people is great!


I had the most amazing time couchsurfing in Scotland. It is such a wonderful way to experience a place when you can get an insiders knowledge on the city/area you are travelling in.


canoeing, hiking, camping, climbing, running, mountain biking, skiing (xc and downhill) ANYTHING in the outdoors!!!

Music, Movies, and Books

It always depends what kind of mood I'm in! It varies constantly! I enjoyed Harry Potter, I love real life stories - like Between a rock and a hard place, but I am also a sucker for romance.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The other day after 1 year living in my house I discovered that my couch has a recliner!!! That was a pretty big discovery for me!

Really though - I thoroughly enjoyed discovering the beauty of Iceland and all its people and environment have to offer.

I am also constantly amazed by children I work with and how amazing they can be in their own ways.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love meeting all sorts of people! Communicating with others and hearing about other people's experiences and knowledge is the best way to learn and to broaden horizons, become exposed to new opportunities and opinions.
