About Me




I cant tell you all about me. That will just ruin the surprise! Most of that stuff is top secret anyways!

What can I say, planning is not my priority. I like to float around, find adventure, meet cool people and constantly learn new things. Last minute ideas occur often, leading me to strange unknown worlds.

Life throws a lot of stuff at us. We can either choose to dwell on the bad things, or flourish from them. Each one is an obstacle. Grow and get stronger, smarter, happier! Live to the fullest. It will make you happy!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I work a two week work schedule. Two weeks working in northern Alberta, then two weeks off. Continuously. This allows me to travel a lot. Some times I will go out of country, other times I will stay in the Rocky Mountains and do some trekking, climbing, flying... whatever.

If I am off and around, more than happy to take you on one of my adventures... if any sound interesting to you :)


I have now stayed with a few people, and hosted a few... although my hosting is a bit different than most. I must say I love this. You almost have an instant connection thru people you meet in the community. Most CS'ers understand that you must open yourself up and allow friendships to be easy going. It makes the time spent together un forgettable every time!


randomness, people watching, sustainability, self powered transport, mountain bikes, scuba diving, rock climbing, mountaineering, paragliding, slacklining, sail planes, snowboarding, ski (water and snow, mostly back country), longboard/freebord, photo taking and developing, the list goes on. If it requires adrenaline, I'll do it!

Music, Movies, and Books

I mix it up... music is just amazing. I want to hear it all. Because I have absolutely NO skills on an instrument, I am completely captivated by anyone that does!

I like to read bio's. Other peoples paths intrigue me and keep me inspired. There are so many amazing things that people do with their lives.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just living is amazing!
