About Me


I want to continuously improve myself, and travelling is one of the best ways to do that.


I'm currently working in the Ottawa political world, but I try to burst out of this bubble as often as I can to see other places. My most recent accomplishment is to see West Virginia, the last US state that I had yet to visit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted, surfed, and hung out and they've all been great experiences. The spirit of couchsurfing brings out the best in people, and I'm proud to be a part of such a great community.


I love to read, and I take every chance to solicit book recommendations. I love politics, both in Canada and wherever else I can learn about it. I play a lot of middling tennis, disc golf, board games, and ultimate frisbee. I am on an unending quest to try as many new beers as I can.

As with anyone's four sentence summary, the above isn't everything. If we get the chance to hang out, I can talk your ear off about everything.

Teach, Learn, Share

I work on Parliament Hill here in Ottawa, so I would love to show you around and pass along some of the stories that aren't usually shared on the guided tour.
