I'm a fun and friendly Canadian Portu-gal living in London. Witty entertainment guaranteed.
Two eyes, two ears, a heartbeat, outgoing personality, open smile... and glasses.
The purpose of my life is to inspire myself and others to laugh, think and grow, creating a life of joy and fulfilment. (Or so I hope.)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Thoroughly enjoying exploring the city with locals and introducing travellers to my city, wherever that may be at the time.
I've hosted friends of friends when we had a spare room in London. I've met fellow travellers and shared a night out on the town together but have yet to stay with anyone I haven't yet met first.
Reading, writing, travelling, making real connections with wonderful people, open-minded discussions, dancing, eating well, drinking all things tasty, day dreaming and occasionally napping.
- performing arts
- scuba diving
- bungee jumping
Music, Movies, and Books
This list is far to long. I enjoy anything that moves me, inspires me, entertains me, scares me a little and tickles my funny bone.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
I'd like to learn how not to mysteriously delete my brilliant responses before saving them. Far too much to retype now. I'm happy to share my tales of world travel and laughter.
I've worked in film and television, theatre in education, and performance all over the place. Otherwise, I'm living, laughing, loving, learning, exploring, and inviting others to smile.
