About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore my new city, Calgary

ABOUT ME

I'm originally from Vancouver but moved to Calgary recently for school. I love exploring and seeing how people live in other countries. I try to travel as much as possible and I love meeting CS-ers from other countries.

PHILOSOPHY

Never stop learning.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Sometimes I can host, depending on my roommates. If I have time I'm definitely down to explore the city with you.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've Couchsurfed in San Sebastian, Bilbao, Oviedo, Santiago de Compostela, Madrid, Girona, and Granada. They were all such fantastic and unique experiences; I had such a great time seeing how locals live. I've also participated in CS events in Barcelona, Calgary, and Vancouver.

Interests

Hiking, football/soccer, painting, baking, capoeira, coffee, craft beer, wine, food security/urban agriculture, learning languages, and street art.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Vampire Weekend, Devendra Banhart, Arcade Fire, Manel, Xoel Lopez, Metric
Books: Anything by Junot Diaz, David Foster Wallace, or Kurt Vonnegut

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Watching the World Cup in Ghana, skinny dipping in the Red Sea, and talking my way out of getting deported to Morocco from Girona.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach watercolour painting and some basic capoeira moves.
I want to improve my Spanish and Portuguese and I've just started learning how to dance salsa so I'd love to improve on that. I've also done homebrewing a couple of times and appreciate any tips.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can teach you some basic capoeira moves, have some conversations about travels, and tell you some interesting stories about working in Global Health.

Countries I've Visited

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Burkina Faso, Croatia, France, Germany, Ghana, Guatemala, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, Peru, Slovenia, Spain, United Kingdom, United States
