About Me


Working in the Non Profit world, and Exploring the Eastern Hemisphere as time permits


Most people say I'm outgoing, caring and clever, I have something of a passion for life.


At the moment I'm focused with participating in community development projects abroad and in Canada (home). I hope to join the foreign service once I complete my masters.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to be a host in La Paz, Bolivia in 2012; I backpacked with some CSers in Southeast Asia during the fall of 2013; and I'm always ready to meet up at the CS nights with new people in Toronto.
