About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Moving in to a new place in Ottawa bit-by-bit throughout June. Once there is a couch there, you may surf it. :)

ABOUT ME

I love to travel, meet new people, and learn new things at every occasion. As far as personal adjectives go, I'd say that I am thoughtful, outgoing, and playful. I love a good conversation, cold beer, golf and good music.

PHILOSOPHY

'Were all people aware of each other's real interests, they would understand that what is good for one is good for all others, and that all conflict is the result of ignorance'

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Just starting out really. Once I've fully moved into my new place at the end of June, I'd like to try out hosting during the summer to see how it goes. My girlfriend and I are going on a roadtrip out to the maritimes in a month or so and we'd love to try couch-surfing for some of the trip too.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've never actually couch-surfed through this site, but I have used a friend-of-a-friend's couch many times while back-packing and offered the same to others.

A likeminded friend of mine hosted some people through couchsurfing.org a while back and says it was a great experience. So I figured I'd try it out too!

Interests

I'm particularly interested in travel, politics and movies. These are the big ones. I'm also into music, am starting to become a little bit of a foodie, and like over 9000 internet memes :D

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Top Gun, City Lights, V for Vendetta, The Shawshank Redemption, The Man with the Movie Camera and many more. I'm kind of really into movies.

Music: RATM, Skrillex, Brother Ali, Deadmau5, Greenday, Eminem.

Books: I'd say my book preferences are objectively boring lol, I really like political non-fiction and biographies. Some of the Eastern philosophy too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived in New Delhi, India for 6 months which was mind bending experience. I was also in exchange in France for a year and go back for a visit often. France is like my adoptive 2nd culture.
