About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live life to the fullest, experience new things, eat locally and making friends

ABOUT ME

Love being outdoors and being with friends and eating. I am mostly vegan except when I'm a guest somewhere. Doing what I can to lighten my footprint is very important to me. I love family too. I read, write (sometimes), play the piano (sometimes) and bike. I don't own a cell phone. I can be shy but when I'm comfortable I'm really good company. I want to learn the language of music, as I feel my current skills on piano are limited. I want to learn violin!

PHILOSOPHY

Think globally, act locally. I love this saying. And I try to live my life making the world a better place for all humans to live in.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When I went on a road trip with a couple friends we stayed on friends of ours' couches. In Otesha, for almost two months I stayed in a different place for no more than three days each; houses, churches, tenting...
The places I enjoyed the most were the farms probably, I liked to work and help out, and the people were so chill and accepting and interesting and interested in us. Some of the most memorable moments were from sharing meals with hosts. And I really liked staying with hosts who don't expect anything from you but who are egar to share ideas and philosophies with you.

Interests

People, our environment, organic farming, books, movies, sports, food.

Music, Movies & Books

Hunger games, lord of the rings, sacred economics, moneyless man, the ascent of humanity, classic rock, classical, rap, hip-hop, reggae, techno, country, pretty much all music.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I went on a 5 day canoe/portage trip through algonquin park, 11 of us carried all our food, clothes and gear. I participated in Katimavik as a volunteer, for six months living with 11 other 17-21 year olds volunteering full-time. I've traveled 222km on bike in two days / I've traveled 1500km in 6 weeks by bike; in Otesha. I've been to the Bahamas and swam in the ocean. I worked at a cemetery and dug graves. I've been vegan for over a year.

Teach, Learn, Share

Culturally, we are often not conscious of our prejudices. Some of them are global, evolved over time, some are local, a symptom of not traveling, but most are unintentional. I say unintentional because some people intentionally develop their views of the world, stuff like abundance, and community, and more participation in gift based economies, and fulfillment of personal purpose.
