Queer, Transgender, and Cannabis Friendly.
Experience: People, Places, Things, Ideas
Fun, humorous, spontaneous, friendly, open, curious.
I'm usually up for almost anything whether it be dancing, walking around the city, grabbing a beer, going swimming in freezing cold water or hitting up a museum.
I like to laugh and I like to have fun. I try to be laid-back and learn what I can from the people and places around me. The more people I meet and the more places that I go, the closer I get to the answer.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have been a part of couchsurfing since it began and was vouched for (back when that was still a thing on the site) by the person who started it.
I drove up to the very first Montreal collective (back when that was a thing) for the weekend and brought them a ton of food.
I tell lots of people about couchsurfing and try to spread the couchsurfing spirit.
