full life here in Calgary
Outgoing, tall Canadian traveller with a liberal arts degree, three years as a military officer, rather serious dabbler in film production, and these days providing immigration advice to multi-nationals on Canadian immigration law.
My philosophy is to life life large, to work hard, to experience the world around me, to create, and to break down barriers between people and cultures. Communication, dialogue, and understanding.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
As I can. Host, surfer, greeter, guide, organizer. Less so at present on account of a busy work life.
Lots of hosting, about 3 weeks of surfing in Poland, USA, Belarus and Canada. Very positive so far.
Figuring out Calgary, sailing, immigration law, islands, languages, historical reenactment, dreaming, dancing, film making, investing, geothermal energy, history of ideas, brewing
Music, Movies, and Books
I like a good story whatever the medium and original music that make people get up and dance.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Great Wall of China
camel ride in the desert
loved and lost
visited a couple volcanos
