Join Couchsurfing to see Kyle’s full profile.
I'm currently traveling the world and filming a documentary about animism and flow experiences.
I've been running an online learning community for the last 7 years teaching self-education practices, lean startup methodology, and different forms of meditation. Since I mostly work online, I spend the winters abroad as a digital nomad to escape Vancouver's rainy season.
I love meeting people from different cultures, especially long-term travelers or digital nomads..especially anyone who thinks differently than the norm and isn't designed psychologically for 9 to 5 corporate grind.
I'm really interested in meditation, yoga, photography, documentaries, ancient history, politics, startup culture, and cosmology.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love meeting locals in my travels on Couchsurfer and hearing their unique stories and getting a deeper understanding and experience of their unique culture.
I never want to be a normal tourist who just stays in hotels, watches TV and gets room service.
I like skiing, mountain biking, traveling, reading, meditation, yoga, swimming, hiking, play guitar, writing, flow states and anything that involves being creative.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I launched a fitness app for iPhone and Android that's been downloaded over 2 million times.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm a strong believer in self-education. I've run my own online businesses for the last decade while traveling so I know a lot about storytelling, digital marketing, online ads, Wordpress, running live retreat experiences and teaching in all sorts of environments.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm also happy to share my knowledge of filmmaking, online learning, animism, documentaries, meditation, designing good habits that stick, digital marketing, growing online businesses, ecology, unschooling, and location independent living.
