About Me


I've worked in non-profits since 2008, working with primarily with youth. I play drums, ride my bike, run, & cook.

I've done a couple of big trips, in 2012 I spent 4 months backpacking around Europe, including London, Spain, Italy, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Scotland & Dublin.

In the summer of 2015 I biked from North Vancouver, B.C, to St. Johns, NL.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had excellent hosts while travelling Europe, and was hosted by several wonderful people via warmshowers during my bicycle trip and I want to pay it forward.

--To Guests--

I don`t know what you`ll sleep on, but you`ll have a bed, couch or air mattress & blankets. I`m staying in a small basement suite and I can accommodate 2 people. There are loads of excellent hikes in North Vancouver and I`m happy to take guests on them! I`m not much of bar person, but I`m happy to have some low-key beers at home & chat.

Things to do in North Vancouver:

Hiking: Quarrey Rock, Lynn Valley, Mt. Seymour, Grouse Mountain (The Grouse Grind)

Mountain Biking, Snowboarding/Skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking.

--To Guests--:

When you message me to host you, give me an idea of what your plans are in Vancouver. Are you hiking or doing outdoorsy stuff? Going to museums? & tourist type stuff? Do you need a day or two to just sit on a couch, drink coffee and use the wifi to rest from travel? Give me an idea of what you`re after, this will help me host you better! Put your phone number in your message if you have one!

--Where I Live--

I`m located in Deep Cove in North Vancouver. I`m a 15 minute walk from the water & hiking trails & grocery store, coffee shops are 10 minutes away. You`ll need to get to Phibbs Exchange (bus loop) and take the 211 Seymour or 212 Deep Cove. I`m about an hour by bus to downtown Vancouver and 45 minutes from Commercial Drive.
