About Me

Hey! Please send a couch request if you're looking for a host, NOT a message. :)

CURRENT MISSION
Keep on loving life and rockin' it!

ABOUT ME
I'm a teacher with a passion for visual art and photography. I've been told that I have a positive energy and that people feel welcomed and cared about around me. I truly appreciate that because these are huge compliments in my book! I'm into 101 things - I think life is about exploring, trying and learning something new at every turn. I'm currently completing a Masters in International and Comparative Education.

I'm always up for sarcasm and a silly time. I'm also always up for deep, philosophical conversation and a great glass of wine (or whisky :p). I try to live a life of balance and be as eco friendly as I can. I'm not about going out and getting drunk out of my mind but I promise you that I can dance all night long! I'm usually the funny, social type but I also really like to just sit quietly with people and take life in. I like pushing myself to see how far I can go and enjoy the thrill of an adrenalin bungee jump and skydive rush. Psychology and neuroscience get me excited too.

I'm a rock climber, a runner, a yogi, a football player and a pretty terrible snowboarder. I enjoy spending time in nature, writing and reading, drawing and the arts. I look to fill my days with ideas, music, laughter, great home cooked meals and travel plans.

PHILOSOPHY
Be adventurous, dance in the kitchen, eat really great food, be kind to strangers, take it all in, and never forget that you make it what it is.
