About Me


To see the world and meet it's awesome people


I am an easy-going, adventure seeking designer from Vancouver. I love to move - I am one of those people who love to go out and do things, especially things I have never had a chance to try before.


Have fun, do good!


I'm an active person. I love skiing, rock climbing and running. I'm game to try anything once and love going to concerts, festivals and comedy shows. I work as a designer and making things is one of my favourite activities - whether it is cooking or taking apart a Nintendo 64. Hey, if you host me I might even fix that leaky tap!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had an amazing opportunity to go to South Africa with the Canadian National Underwater Hockey Team. I was one of only three females in the U19 torment. It was a blast, and we got to meet so many cool people.

Another one of my favourite experiences is being at the top of a ski run that looks really difficult, skiing down, and looking back up and realizing that I've done it...and then going back up and doing it again!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not the greatest teacher in the world but anything that I know that you want to, I'll be happy to try my best! I'm really interested in electronics, computers, textiles, how things work and food.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Cooking, stories and I'm pretty handy!
