About Me

From Ottawa, spent my childhood in France, got a degree in Russian for fun, took that and taught English in Korea for 6 months. I've flown and taught how to fly in Nanaimo, Flin Flon, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, Windsor and now Portage. Very familiar with road trip fatigue and the importance of a hot breakfast on morale.
Also a bit of a map fan, if we meet, there's a good chance I'll ask you to tell your story while pointing at where you've been.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I always love hearing peoples' travel stories and sharing my own. Its' great to welcome the world into one's home

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Recently got my aerobatic rating and routinely teach people how to fly upside-down

Teach, Learn, Share

I may try and convince you to at least go on an introductory flight once in your life if you haven't already.
Always love hearing a good travel story or so over a home cooked meal (flexible for dietary restrictions).
Over the past 10 years, have lived in many different regions of Canada, if you need advice of places to go or avoid, I may be able to help

Countries I’ve Visited
