About Me

CURRENT MISSION

full life here in Calgary

ABOUT ME

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.

PHILOSOPHY

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.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Lots of hosting, about 3 weeks of surfing in Poland, USA, Belarus and Canada. Very positive so far.

Interests

photography, hiking mountains, rock climbing, live music, sailing, immigration law, islands, languages, historical reenactment, dreaming, dancing, film making, 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.
