About Me


To find my true myself and figure out where my true self belongs in this big beautiful wacky world.


Well, my time in New Zealand has concluded and I am home in Canada doing some hard reflecting on my experiences over the last year. After being away for so long its hard to remember how to be Canadian again! Kiwis are so,so relaxed its an adjustment to the faster pace life in Canada. I do not have a couch to offer anybody right now, but I can get verified finally and add some pictures!


He went to Paris, looking for answers
To questions that bothered him so
He was impressive, young and aggressive
Saving world on his own

But the warm summer breezes
The French wines and cheeses
Put his ambition at bay
The summers and winters, scattered like splinters
And four or five years slipped away

Now he lives in the islands, fishes the pilings
And drinks his Green Label each day
Writing his memoirs, losing his hearing
But he don't care what most people say

Through years of perpetual motion
If he likes you, he'll smile and he'll say
"Jimmy, some of it's magic, some of it's tragic
But I had a good life all the way"

And he went to Paris looking for answers
To questions that bothered him so

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am living at my father's house now and unable to host unfortunately and busy trying to find work.


Not yet, but I have friends who have couchsurfed and loved it!
