About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to make a difference and give back to people in need through my photography and creativity. I want to travel the world and explore the natural beauty it has to offer.

ABOUT ME

I am a photographer and artist. I have a passion for taking amazing photos, drawing, painting, and anything else creative. I am athletic and love playing sports, hiking and enjoying the great outdoors.

I am hardworking and competitive and always push myself to my limits and try my best at everything I do. I am up for adventures and new experiences.

I try to be considerate, honest, and respectful of others. I'm a Christian and not the partying type but that doesn't mean I don't love to have fun in other ways! I'm usually a little shy meeting someone for the first time but once you get to know me I'm outgoing and love joking around.

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life for God and hope to follow the plans he has for my life. I want to think about what I can do to help others and show them God's love through loving them myself. And showing my love through my actions, not just my words because that is true love. I want to make a difference in people's lives.

Frederick Buechner writes, "Intellectually we all know that we will die, but we do not really know it in the sense that the knowledge becomes a part of us. We do not really know it in the sense of living as though it were true. On the contrary, we tend to live as though our lives would go on forever."

My goal is to live every day to the fullest, as though each is my last.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I couchsurfed a couple times for the first time when backpacking Iceland and had great experiences! Since then I've been hosting people when I can and have used it again to surf on a trip to Portland with a friend.

Interests

A few things I love...God, family, friends, nature, photography, art, travel, design, illustration, drawing, painting, reading, music, hiking, light shining through the forest, wet moss, fresh air, the smell of the ocean, basketball, sports, hiking, food, cooking, tea, coffee, accomplishing a really difficult task, learning, listening, and just taking in everything around me.

Music, Movies & Books

Music...I love a lot of different music, just not country or heavy metal type stuff. I am currently loving more folk, acoustic, indie music, but lots of other stuff too. Some of my current favorite artists are Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, Bombay Bicycle Club, Ben Howard, Of Monsters and Men, Passenger, Florence + The Machine, Daughter, Boy & Bear, The Paper Kites, The Lumineers, Matthew & The Atlas...to name a few.

Books...hmmm that's a tough one. I like reading a lot of kinds of books from photography and more technical books to romantic novels, such as Nicholas Sparks, and lost of stuff in between.

Movies...well I haven't watched many recently being so busy with school but I have to admit I'm a fan of the sappy romantic chick flicks, but I also love action packed adventures. One of my favorites is Sherlock Holmes. Amazing acting, soundtrack, cinematography, lighting, plot...amazing everything.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Backpacking/hitchhiking around Iceland by myself the summer of 2012. The entire trip was so incredible. I will never forget the places I saw, the people I met, and the adventures I had.

One of the most amazing adventures I had in Iceland was the 75km hike I did from Landmannalaugar to Skogar. I also snorkled at Silfra, the rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates- incredible.

Backpacked Spain, Portugal, Morocco in 2014

I've been on a few amazing multi-day hikes; bungee jumping; photographed the athletes on Canada's women's swim team...for now I await my next big adventure.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share my knowledge about photography and art...or any other random knowledge I have. I would really like to at some point in my life learn how to play the guitar, rock climb, surf, snowboard, kitesurf...or at least try these things.
