About Me

Update: living in Berlin now.
Learning German, exploring Germany, now almost 30 different cities/towns!
//Live in vegan WG. Important to know if you're requesting.

Vancouver is an amazing place to live and ever since I took up cycling to work I can't imagine living anywhere else.
Worked for a boutique production company in Vancouver as a sound designer/cgi artist. Pretty sweet gig. But it's been five years and I need a sabbatical.
Musician in the off hours (play sax). Also write/produce an online fantasy audiodrama series.

Visiting Vancouver? Feel free to reach out.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To see the world. Experience the settings through local lens. Meet travellers. Time to stretch my boundaries, expand the comfort zone.

I've quit my job in November of 2015 and am now on an indefinite trip around the world beginning in Thailand. Never thought I'd do this, so I'm taking a leap and going for it.
I'd rather make connections and memories than simply check off the next landmark, so I hope to experience your city/town with you!

Shipped my sax to Australia and began a musical journey of busking on the street, private gigs and playing for accommodation.

**2020 update: Living in Germany and working towards residency. Loving travel in Europe. Building up my business as a musician: music.klimlevene.com
Hope to become location independent at some point even if it's tricky with music.


Music (playing & enjoying), Literature, Snowboarding, Tech, Podcasts, Photography, Cycling.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - So long as it's not country, I think we'll get along. A neighbour used to blast country in the middle of the night, walls were thin and I still haven't recovered.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked, beginning in Laos, from Luang Prabang down to 4 Thousand Islands

Teach, Learn, Share

Computers/motion graphics. Languages.
I'm not the best teacher, but I can probably give a few tips to a novice sax player.

Other people have told me that I’m good at blowing other people’s trumpets - I could share that

What I Can Share with Hosts

House work. Digital media creation. Software/skills training in creative applications. Help you brush up on your Russian. Music jams.
