About Me


To find myself and then lose myself....and then find myself again.... wait! where'd I go!


Well I'm a small town boy living in a grown up world!
I have traveled as much as possible on my own means seeing the sites and discovering those not seen!
I don't know why I never found this site before! how was I so blind!


'Been there done that is my motto!'
well its actually ' been there done that lets do it again, this time with tigers!'

I believe you can never look back and to also trust yourself no matter what, that you have to believe in the kindness of strangers and the generosity of others.

All I have is hope in my heart!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I finally have a reason to use this site, as I have been living in my tent at at friends houses in Australia! but now that I'm in Europe I don't really know anyone at all!!!
I am just starting but will offer whatever I have whenever I have it!


well I've tried regular surfing, and I'm hoping this wont be as hard,at the very least I hope to stay dry!!surfing for almost a year now! Let me tell you, it has been absolutely amazing and positive experience, I have told all of my freinds, and anyone I come across really about it! I have met tons of special, life changing people and have nothing but good things to say!


I love pop art and photography, food cooking and long walks on the beach, also Pina Coladas, clichy? yes, but coconut and pineapple is just so damn good!
I have a multitude of talents; juggling,welding,hot coal walking ( well it was just hot pavement, but it burnt my feet!!!)

I love the water, scuba diving, little fishies! I wanted to be an ichthyologist as a kid, or a pilot, so either way I didn't want to be on land!

We have lots of Animals, dogs, cats, fish,chickens, rabbits, horses etc etc. I love the richness they bring to our lives and love them like family ( in some cases more than some family!)

I love fashion and design, Im looking to move into that field in the coming years.
Ive run my own Painting company in Canada, my parents also ran a construction buisness since my young age. So i Can gyproc a wall, lay a foundation or paint the kitchen!
