About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I try to enjoy every minute. If you learn to find happiness everywhere, you'll have the world in your hands.

ABOUT ME

I am a firm believer in experiencing as much as possible in this short life. I travel as often as possible to keep me grounded in what matters the most. I travel to surround myself with different cultures, different types of people, and all that I can learn from both. I lIve for those spontaneous encounters that happen in unexpected places and that in that moment you know you are exactly where you are meant to be.

I consider myself a warm and open person who thrives on infectious positive energy, genuine and happy people, conversations that last for hours, laughter that comes from the belly, and finding common threads that connect us to one another.

I am currently living in Berlin Germany and slowly and thoroughly exploring Europe country by country.

PHILOSOPHY

Make something everyday. Make a song, make a move, make a friend, make a difference.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My mission everytime I travel is to get off the beaten path at as many twists and turns along my journey. Anyone that knows me knows this and thus I have been recommended time and time again that couchsurfing is definitely something that would be "right up my ally". I love the idea of unveiling the real culture and people of a place and getting a "behind the scenes" perspective.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My friend and I have couchsurfed twice in Melbourne. The first one was a bit dodgy, but the second more than made up for it!! We loved staying with our now friend Samuel. We planned on staying for two nights and ended up staying an entire week! Amazing guy, incredible experience! Highly recommended to all those who are outgoing and on the search for something a little bit alternative and out of the norm.

Interests

My interests are always changing and evolving. But some that always stay the same are..

Traveling and exploring new countries, meeting new people and learning from both.

In true Canadian form, I love being outside and in nature as much as possible - whether that is hiking a mountain, finding a secluded camping spot, or being by the ocean or lake.

I enjoy live music and outdoor festivals, outdoor markets, art, design and creative expression, and cooking. I have an obsession with learning to cook traditional meals from each place I travel.

Most of all I enjoy trying new things and pushing my boundaries.

Music, Movies & Books

My music taste is always evolving, and it really depends on my mood. Currently, I am on a pretty mellow kick.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It is the most amazing feeling getting to the top of a mountain after climbing for two gruelling days just in time to see the sun rising over the China sea. I will never forget the feeling I had at that moment, the feeling of great accomplishment and the new found confidence that I could do anything I set my mind to.

Teach, Learn, Share

I feel I have learned a lot while on my travels, and I am always eager to share what I have been taught.
I am also keen to learn as much as I can, so please teach my what you know- whether it be cooking, a new language or as simple as a few words of wisdom.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I hope to share in good company and good conversation. I will try my best to impress you with my cooking skills!
