About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Represent Canada with pride, honor and dignity. Long live the Queen!

ABOUT ME

I am a young french and religion teacher from northern Ontario, who just moved to Chatham to start my career (which allows me to have my summers off, to travel and do other fun things). I've been traveling since 2009 and don't plan on giving it up.

PHILOSOPHY

You can't beat the clock. Best thing to do is join forces and have one helluva time!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted a 20+ people in my humble abode in Gatineau as well as have had been hosted by a dozen people in the US and Brazil. I also partake in a few CS-orientated events and have started a popular monthly potluck in my city through CS.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Beside the one negative experience (you can read up on it in my references) I've had nothing but great things to say about Couchsurfing. It's a great way to make friends, to break away from your routine lifestyle (by hosting people and going to events) and a safer and more enjoyable way to travel (since you're with locals who knows where to go and when to go there).

Interests

Theatre, theological/philosohpical"social-minded debates, reading, writting, dancing, drinking, cooking, sports (hockey, vball, bball, softball, etc.)

Music, Movies & Books

I have so many, and they vary from month to month, but I will just write the top 5 for each that I feel at this particular moment

Movies: Cidade de Deus, Shawshank Redemption, Les Triplettes de Belleville, La Grande Seduction and Irreversible

Novel: Animal Farm, The Metamorphisis, La Flèche Manquée, Germinal and Cyrano de Bergerac

Other works of literature: The Holy Bible, Howl, The Gay Science, Betrayal, La Belle Dame Sans Mercy.

Music: Well.. really, I like anything that will make me dance or meditate.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- I've taken the Trans-Siberian Railway with my girlfriend while speaking minimal Russian.
- I've founded a theological theater festival at my old University
- I partook in a 10 day canoe trip through the Canadian Shield and into the Hudson Bay Lowlands

1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of sugar and a cup of water makes home made ''maple'' syrup - I don't find it particular amazing, but people who have seen me do this have, so now I share onto you, dear reader.
