About Me


Treating others as I would like to be. Helping, one couch at a time!


Life is amazing! Being so amazing that it is, I have a true passion for almost everything in life including meeting new people, tasting good food, listening to eclectic music, reading a gripping book and everything to do with cars. I love driving - its one of my greatest passions.

I'm one of the most chillin' & laid back people you'll ever meet. Seriously haha! I'm from Vancouver, BC - one of the greatest places in the world. If you haven't been, get in touch - maybe we can go for coffee/lunch/drinks and I'd love to share some of my favorite spots in the city with you

I love the outdoors, growing myself spiritually, getting into meditation and trying to understand myself from the inside out. I'm a people person - love talking to and hanging out with all types of different people. People are fascinating - everyone has multiple interesting stories, insights and perspectives - and I love to get to know them and hear what they are all about. I'd like to think I'm pretty outgoing, like to try new things, being spontaneous (sp?) and most people enjoy my (sometimes odd and mostly sarcastic) sense of humour...

What else? The best way to get to know me is by meeting me - this is like being in a boat and saying you're swimming.... or trying to describe a taste - you just gotta take a bite and taste for yourself :)


Carpe Diem - Sieze the day!

Always treat others the way you would like to be treated - The world would only need this one law if everyone truly followed this rule.

Don't be afraid to try new things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


What an awesome idea and community. Glad I came across this. Would love to host travelers, show them around and meet new faces. I've always been a very strong believer of treating others the way you would like to be treated. Awesome community CS!


Just joined up and looking forward to new experiences. My residence is in Vancouver BC.... Lived in Europe for 2 months, CS'd in NYC for a while.


Outdoors - Anything water related.... Swimming, slides, lakes, rivers, love fishing, kayaking, you get the picture! Love Camping, hiking, used to be quite into mountain biking....

Love reading and expanding my knowledge... Magazines, Novels and Self Help guides. Tony Robbins is a freakin GENIUS. Look him up if you haven't heard his stuff.

Movies , Music... STAND UP COMEDY! theres a section for this. Like going out at night to various lounges and would love to take you out for a night out in the city of Vancouver if we can make it work

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - All different kinds.... House, Electro, Different Techno, Trance... Also like Hip Hop and Rap... Then theres Rock... Ahhh, Rock n Roll! Classic Rock, Alternative, PINK FLOYD, Zeppelin, Beatles, ACDC, Motley Crue....

I love movies - Comedies and Dramas are my fav! Shawshank Redemption is probably my number 1.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I would like to think that I'm well travelled. Been through half of Europe, seen lots of amazing things and have lots of interesting stories.

Teach, Learn, Share

Always take advantages of opportunities that come your way. Be Proactive. Sieze the day. Hard Work triumphs everything. Aim for the sky and reach for the stars. Believe in yourself. Sing like nobody is listening and dance like nobody is watching. Love Life.
