About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live for awesome. This means stripping away all the non-awesome from my life.

PHILOSOPHY

Say "yes". Funny as it may sound Jim Carrey's Yes Man had a profound message and effect on me. Go see it!

I love learning and reading. I don't ever want to stop! The driving factor is pushing boundaries, and exploring horizons. Learning and improving all facets of your life both internal and external.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I plan to take advantage of some couches in the future and feel like I should put some good mojo in to this community.

I moved in to a great new place just outside the heart of Victoria.

My bro got me into this and I am so happy he did. So many great experiences already!

PLEASE - if you want to surf my couch, use a proper CS request. Don't send me a msg asking to surf. I get so many requests it is very difficult to track unless you make a formal request.

If I get a request from you in the mail I'll know you haven't bothered to even read my profile, and that's just rude... and I probably won't reply. Thanks for understanding.

Also I will leave NEGATIVE feedback if you don't bother showing up after I accept your hosting request. Please be considerate to everyone and simply cancel it if you can't make it or just let me know somehow.

However if you just want to chat or have some questions, by all means drop me a msg!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couchsurfed across Europe and stay with people who I hosted in past.

Definitely had some great new friends stay at my place.

Interests

Just getting in to 4x4'ing. I have an Explorer that I've taken on some light offroad. Went to a natural hot springs (Sloquet) that was hidden away in the BC forest - amazing.

I enjoy riding, I have a 98 Smokin' Joe CBR 600 and am currently teaching my dad to ride.

Love reading, anything and everything

I love taking my boat out on the lake and spending the day tubing, wake boarding and skiing. There is nothing like the feeling you have (complete exhaustion - in a good way) after spending the day on the water having fun with friends. Absolute relaxation is the only thing left.

I also enjoy trail running, martial arts, and mountain biking, and talking like a pirate.

Music, Movies, and Books

Lately I'm on a kick reading about people who have rowed (no sails or motor) across the Atlantic - you'd be surprised how many people have done this and then written books about it after!

Currently reading Mark Twain's complete short story anthology. Good stuff!
