About Me

Well, took me a while (post 30s) to cut my Canadian umbilical chord but once I did I found out the world has so much to offer. I like to take trips to warm/exotic destinations and absorb the culture, art and music for inspiration. I have to admit the Canadian winters have alot to do with when I travel - but I sure don't mind Christmas without the snow. I also produce, writer and tour with my music here and there and love sharing it with like minded individuals. I have been to over 400 concerts, performed over 1000 shows and generally just want to explore between festival season in Canada. I hope to visit more places than my passport can hold!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Heard about this from a friend - seems to be the new revolution for travellers to make life long friends and connections. I absolutely love this idea/platform.


Art, Martial Arts, Music, Oceanography, Astronomy, Meditation, Biking, Hiking, Rope Swings, Mountains, Food, Cooking, Painting, Writing and the constant search for inspiration and inner peace. Oh, avoiding snow ha ha.

Music, Movies, and Books

I would say my musical and theatrical/book tastes falls in the sections where most people tend not to visit for the most part - I live to learn and feel - so if any performance, film or book can do that - it likely showed up on my radar.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, you will never forget the first time you hear your own music on the radio - but beyond that - I spent a couple years in Africa (South Africa) travelling, performing and absorbing/learning the culture there. Pretty cool to stay in various places there including a castle. One amazing thing I have done there was to play for children at a school and make those tiny feet dance and faces smile.

Teach, Learn, Share

Not sure what to put here.
In a quantum universe - all things are possible - keep that in mind.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Excellent Chef Skills, Live Music around the fire, Opportunities to check out Major Label shows, Recording skills, Branding Skills, Design Skills (all new media), video production and maybe some co writing on a song or two.

How about a life long friend and connection for when ever you look me up where I am in the world.
