Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Now that I have my own space and a relatively stable life in my hometown I am eager to host others because CS has made a huge difference to my travelling experiences. Since Winnipeg is not a destination city known for it's geographical beauty, I think it's important for visitors to get insight into the local culture and a sense of the people here, as this is what makes our city ROCK! (ie. we aren't called "Friendly Manitoba" for nothing! ;p).


I first used couchsurfing while doing a bike trip across Canada. It wasn't part of the plan but came in handy due to the ongoing rain. I've had fabulous experiences since then both hosting and visiting, and I love to meet fellow travellers whenever the opportunity allows.


Travelling, reading, dancing, social justice, education, world events & issues, arts-based practices, healing & reconciliation, meeting new people, basically trying anything new!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Too many to get into in just this little box... pick a year or a continent, and then ask!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a little about a lot of things...I'm a chameleon who can fit in anywhere rather than a Master of any one domain. I'm sure we'll be able to find some common ground or at least plenty to talk about :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in a vibrant area with a good understanding of what's going on in the city and where to go to find it.
