Earth care, people care, fair share
I am an individual who loves change. I have had many phases in my life (be it the way I dress, present myself, things I find interesting, etc) and expect many more. Phases I have gone through include living off-the-grid in an eco-community, living in Berlin and the UK, backpacking around Europe, etc. Currently I am living in Vancouver, BC and pursuing a Master in Landscape Architecture. But don't expect that phase to last long! As I am nearing the end of my degree, I sometimes find the monotony of school a lot to handle since I get very "itchy feet", ie. I need to see new places and people often. I hate routines. I strongly value learning but I also strongly believe a University education is only ONE type of learning. Thus after this degree, I intend to travel and experience landscape architecture and what "sustainable living" living means for people in different parts of the world. One day, my partner and I aspire to live in an intentional community setting (with goats, of course!hehe). Yep. That's me. Well, at least for the moment.
ps- A vegetarian I am...
On most days (I would love to say all days. But I can't lie, there are some days where I wake up grumpy and generally lackluster for life :-p), I love the heck out of life and where I am in my life. It is journey and one that I am happy to be on. I like to believe that I live my life in a manner which is closest to my morals as feasibly possible under the given circumstances. May you interpret that last, long-winded statement however you see fit :-)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Currently I have a couch open to Surfers in Vancouver as I finish up my Masters. But this summer my partner and are traveling down the coast (from Vancouver to Mexico) and would love to CS with some people! I have CSed across Europe and Canada. I love meeting locals and getting to meet new people!
Long backpacking trips, mountain biking, rock climbing, cultures, sustainable development, vegetarianism, good conversation and philosophical thoughts, and dancing horribly.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I am continually amazed by the beauty of the natural world. One thing that always leaves me awestruck is the sound, the "silence" that fills your ears when you pause to listen while out in the back country.
Another thing that leaves me awestruck is how fantastic combinations of food textures and smells are!
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to discuss how everything is a construction and a representation. I would be more than willing to teach you how to crochet, play the penny whistle, and the value in riding the bus all day long.
