About Me


To host those on their merry journey across beautiful Canada, and to hopefully be hosted and meet many similar such souls on my own journeys around this strange blue planet.


I am a writer and photographer with a 'career so far' in journalism and marketing. I've settled in Nova Scotia with my wonderful wife, Katie, whose brand new profile you should be able to find quite easily on CouchSurfing, too. Come and share a bottle of wine with us, and crash in our spare room while you visit our great city!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I moved into a surfin'-house when I arrived in Nova Scotia, and we have since hosted various people from all around the world. I thoroughly enjoy meeting these new faces and contributing to one of the most generous communities I have ever had the pleasure of being involved with.

After a couple of years away from Couchsurfing, my wife Katie and I have recently moved into a house with a spare bedroom and half-bathroom, and it seems such a shame to see it sitting unused most of the time. Therefore, it's time to start meeting and hosting wonderful folks from around the world :)


I enjoy fishing, hiking, kayaking, photography, and the outdoors, as well as having a healthy level of respect for the nerdier things in life, good food and good beverages.
