About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding out the steps I need to take in order to reach my full potential....

ABOUT ME

I am a traveller who is ready for anything. From sleeping in 5 star hotels to car parking lots I have done it all. I have seen alot of Italy and a little of Spain, but am slowly making my way around it. I am a die hard tennis player and fan and would love to see all tournaments in europe and hopefully someday work for the ATP. I love nature from mountains to beaches and am open to meet all types of people.

PHILOSOPHY

My personal philosphy is that almost everything you do in life positive or negative will come back to you in some form or another. Since living in Europe I have treated and been treated so well by people that I just met. Europe is full of passionate people who like to help and me being a young canadian traveller full of energy and passion have been welcomed into many different societies. I also believe in striving for your goals and following your gut instict. This has put me in a lot of good situations. I belive in luck but more so in putting yourself in lucky situations.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have just started my account and still do not know how I can participate! I am starting by letting people stay at my house!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I remember in Italy when I met a a woman at an art show. I was flying out of Milan and was planing on sleeping at the airport. She offered me a couch to sleep on and I took her up on the offer. It helped me out greatly as I had to rearange all my luggage before getting on the plane. A year later my friend told me about couch surfing and I was very excited about it. Now I can help other people who are travellers like me.

Interests

Chronic tennis tournaments, Moutain biking, Skiing, Running, Surfing, Reading, Partying and watching a good flick.

Music, Movies & Books

Pulp Fiction, Godfather I,II, Taxi Driver, Clockwork Orange, Casino and Goodfellas.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Il Palio in Siena. This is a medieval horse race in one of the nicest piazzas in Italy. A square with 50, 000 people all quiet waiting for a group of horses without sadles to make 3 laps around a track. High tension and huge action. The dinner before when I was at the main table driking from a 10L bottle of Chianti Classico(local wine) was a big highlight!

Teach, Learn, Share

Travelling I have learned that you cannot trust everyone but using your instincts and feeling out people will go a long way. Its hard to explain but would be easier if I explain it in person when we meet.
