About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore the world and discover all sorts of awesome new places and faces along the way.

ABOUT ME

I'm from the west coast of Canada where I have lived my whole life. I've traveled around my part of Canada, across Europe, to the United States (California, Hawaii) and Mexico. I am always eager to see new places and people and hear all their wonderful and amazing stories. I have a dry sense of humour and often enjoy debates, trivia games (I've been told I'm like a walking encyclopedia) reading, and creative writing, but I am equally interested in spending time exploring the natural world. I also like cooking from scratch and experimenting to discover new and interesting flavours.

PHILOSOPHY

Know the past, enjoy today, plan for the future, make friends along the way.
