About Me


To meet new and fun people on my road trips and host good people looking to have a good time in MTL


I can be shy when meeting people outside my comfort zone. I like to say whatever is on my mind, but first impressions being what they are, I'm often a bit more guarded. My job is a large part of my identity, it affects all aspects of my life. I'm a doer more than a chiller, but that begins to change after I've eaten dinner. I work very infrequently which leaves me with a lot of time to do what I want. I relish my freedom and I despise most things that encroach on it. I try to focus on the present though sometimes I struggle.
Feel free to ask if you have any questions about myself, my roomates or our apartment. We don't offend easily, so ask away.


I like to have a good time without it being at the expense of others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have now done some hosting and surfing


I've had a really good time hosting. We've hosted a half dozen or so surfers and each experience has been positive and unique.


Any and every sport and game. I love to play golf, tennis, football, basketball, ping pong, volleyball, whiffleball, snowboarding and plenty more.
I also love movies, hanging out and good conversation. I've started to cook recently and I really enjoy it. I am not artistic or musical at all, but I like learning about different genres of both. I enjoy nature, but generally on my terms...I enjoy good conversations, especially when someone can show me a new perspective on life/anything.
