About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet and see the world.

ABOUT ME

I've grown up in the Vancouver area all my life and I love this city. But I also passionately love traveling and meeting new people from all around the world. And I'm gay if that matters.

PHILOSOPHY

I think St. Augustine put it best: "The World is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love meeting CSers when I travel and I love playing host when people come to visit Vancouver.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfing has been so good to me! I've met such awesome CS'ers while traveling and have had the good pleasure of playing tour guide in my home city.
