About Me

CURRENT MISSION

not living in montreal anymore!

ABOUT ME

***I AM NOT LIVING IN MONTREAL ANYMORE! I CURRENTLY LIVE IN MISTISSINI, QUEBEC!***

selfless narcissist with delusions of grandeur. the rest comes once you prostrate yourself before me. (heh heh heh, "prostrate")

hmm, let's see, i'm open-minded, adventurous..love learning about anything and everything, exploring new or hidden places, burying my nose in a good book, being in nature, listening to jazz, friendly animals, eating good food, and being in good company..preferably all at once too, that would be incredible!

i'm curious and quirky by nature, sometimes i'm LOUD and sometimes i'm (quiet)..if i were a color, i'd most probably be purple. also, i'm probably one of the most indecisive people you'll ever hope to meet. (or am i?)

i'll leave the rest for you to find out! :)

PHILOSOPHY

live freely, happily, fully

"buy the ticket, take the ride" hunter s. thompson

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

come visit mistissini and sleep in one of my various crazy rooms!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

literally every experience i've had with CS has been amazing. i've met some hilarious and wonderful people thanks to this project and i plan to meet a whole lot more..
from cooking delicious meals and talking over a few glasses of wine in paris, to dancing until the wee hours of the morning in munich, to dubstep shows and vegan feasts in amsterdam, there's no shortage of memories that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Interests

books, science, music, people, movies, animals, culture, travel, biking, decorating (especially DIY), adventure, and art to name a few..there are plenty more but they didn't make it to my head fast enough

Music, Movies & Books

a good portion of the randomness in my life comes from my movie, music, and book collections because i like pretty much anything

MOVIES: fear and loathing in las vegas, pulp fiction, burn after reading or pretty much any coen brothers movie, tim burton, toy story 123, day & night and other disney&pixar movies, fight club, stanley kubric, life is beautiful, monty python, ...

MUSIC: john coltrane, pink floyd, bill withers, gorillaz, norah jones, jack johnson, supertramp, the beatles, audioslave, the animals, incubus, nirvana, the black keys, RATM, RHCP, queen, smashing pumpkins, sublime, jimi hendrix, bob marley, tenacious d, black lips, ratatat, GnR, led zeppelin, the roots, the pixies, ... and of course you gotta have some disney! :P

BOOKS: harry potter <3, watchmen, irvine welsh, chuck palahniuk, how to be a canadian, a series of unfortunate events, city of ember, the shining, fear and loathing in las vegas, rum diaries, robert heinlein, the murder of roger ackroyd, slaughterhouse five...

bonus! ART: escher, magritte, dali, vladimir kush

One Amazing Thing I've Done

"Back to School" season at Staples (hell on earth)

montreal driving (also known as chaos)

survived biking in amsterdam (uberchaos)

hiked in the austrian alps in füssen and saw some of the most incredible views of my life so far

danced for literally 4 hours straight at a university party in munich..gooood times

Teach, Learn, Share

apart from all the obvious stuff..

i can teach you the art of underwater basket-weaving, though it does require a base fee of all your life's savings

if anyone can teach me how to ride a unicycle and play the piano (not simultaneously, though that would be pretty AWESOME!)
