About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn more about the people of the world, create strong friendships.

ABOUT ME

My names Ben, and I'm an English student and work for non-profit organizations. From February - June 2012 I went throughout Europe: The UK, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, The Netherlands, etc. My favorite country was Spain, loved the warm weather and people! I play drums and love old music- old rock n' roll like Guns n' Roses, Motley Crue, Deep Purple, Bill Withers, Elton John, RHCP, Michael Jackson, Tom Petty, Rush, etc.

I like working out, hiking, biking, skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding. I'm right near the mountains and ocean so I'm lucky to be within walking distance! I love cooking, ethnic food- sushi & indian, meaty dishes, BBQ. I've made my own beer/wine/fruit gin a few times, really fun.

PHILOSOPHY

I think in life you should only surround yourself with people who make you feel good, and not put energy or time into people who don't make you feel good. The power of thought and intention has the ability to alter our thoughts and push us in a positive direction. No one has the power to make us feel negative unless we decide to give them that power.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Slept on a few couches while travelling, hoping to host some peeps in my humble home! I've also made a good friend from a CS meet up in Vancouver.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfers are pretty rad. When I was travelling and hosted, I was inspired by the trust and warmth my hosts gave me and I'd like to recreate that experience for my surfers.

Interests

playing drums, buying & selling drum equipment, working out, cooking, hiking, live music (ska, rock, raggae, etc.), dancing, stand up comedy, reading, snowboarding, the wilderness.

Music, Movies & Books

Books- I'm a total biography nerd, especially about rock bands- I've read biographies of Motley Crue, KISS, The Sex Pistols, Marylon Manson, Anthony Kiedis, Madonna... more to come as I find'm in thrift stores ;)

Music- Deep Purple, RHCP, Motley Crue, Guns n' Roses, The Ivy League Brawlers, Foo Fighters, Bill Withers, Michael Jackson, Dirty Penny, Vains of Jenna, Eminem, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles.

Movies- The Warriors, Clerks, Rocky, anything with Stalone or Adam Sandler, Pulp Fiction, Star Wars.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've hiked up Mt. Garibaldi, this beautiful mountain in British Columbia when I was 11 or 12 with my big brother. He's the one who's influenced me to appreciate nature.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some basic drumming stuff, Childcare, rock climbing, writing and literary analysis (English major, right?). I want to learn to cook curry, spicy dishes, etc.
