About Me


Down size my things, super size my relationships.


I just moved to Montreal to be an English language assistant at a CEGEP to try out teaching, and finally get a grasp on French. I'm super excited to live in Montreal and explore it. I love bikes, bicycle touring, learning guitar and singing, repurposed things, general artsy frugalness and attempting puns your 80 grandfather might make?


When encountered with a trouble/inconvenience - If no one is going to die, let's just laugh about it. :)

Be kind, everyone is fighting a battle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Once I find a place in Montreal, and a couch, you can sleep on it!


Just twice! Boston and Vancouver, both times the generousity of the hosts humbled me. Such a cool experience.


The environment, the local food movement, finding good local eats (gluten-free!), recycled and repurposed things, architecture, rock climbing (indoor and outdoor) and cutting hair based on a hilarious book I have from the 70's called "how to cut hair". So far 8 out of 8 of my clients have been satisfied!

Music, Movies, and Books

Some movies I like: Amelie, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Up!, Stranger than Fiction, Eternel Sunshine of the Spotless Mind...many others)

Some music I like: Kaki King, The Strokes, Rufus Wainwright

Some books I like: Deep Economy, Bitchfest, Of Love and Shadows

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watched the sunset on top of a volcano over the ocean, in Hawaii. Amazing!! Cycling eastern Canada with a friend.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to vermicompost! It's so awesome. I could also point you/invite you to cool lectures/talks/movies/events in Edmonton (if we were there). I can teach you about gluten free food/cooking. I could share a little knowledge of biking, bike repairs, and climbing. I've also been told I'm a master of salads and sandwiches.

Countries I’ve Visited

Dominican Republic, Mexico, Spain, United States
