About Me

Hi, I'm originally from Canada, but have been living in the US for 15 years. I was first in NYC for 11 years and now in San Francisco for the last 4 years.

I've backpacked and traveled to over 65 countries and I really relate to others who travel to experience new places and cultures. I spend my free time practicing yoga, snowboarding, climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and seeing live music. One of my favorite things is to gather with my international friends in San Francisco for a big communal dinner.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'd love to help give back to the traveling community and provide a sofa bed for those coming through San Francisco. My conversational French and Spanish is pretty good, and I'd love to practice more.
