About Me


Connect, Laugh, Smile and Learn


(I live in HUDSON'S HOPE, but the site stuck me as Mackenzie.)

I'm a down to earth guy and like keeping fit: yoga, some weights, a hike or a long walk always feels nice. I'm a closeted board game geek: Scrabble, Boggle, Settlers of Catan, Tri-ominos, crib, etc.

Getting into northern Canadian living; getting my hunting license :-)

I'm a non-smoker. I enjoy most alcoholic drinks. My nose is sensitive to artificially scented air freshers, insense and many perfumes (your limited use of these is appreciated).

Check out a google MAP I made with many spots of interest in Vancouver you may enjoy, its "MY WEBSITE" just to the left!!


Laughing at myself and life. This is all really just a big game and we mind as well have as much fun as we can and make as many other people's lives a better experience for them as well. Smiling is important!

I'm always grateful of a friends couch when I travel. Looking forward to using couchsurfing to connect and make new friends.
My first six months surfing in Australia I met many great people and their couches. I broadened my experiences from this web site with Activities(bike tours, road trips and travel advice). It keeps getting better and better!
