About Me

CURRENTLY

I have just completed my teaching contract in Egypt. It is my 7th country as a teacher. Next up is New Zealand. For the next 4 months I will be traveling through Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Namibia, and Australia before I start to teach in New Zealand. In my backpack, I have books, a camera, a tent, and plenty of stories.

ABOUT ME

I like to think that an ideal adventure could described as Odyssean. One of my favourite stories is Homer's 'Oddysey' and I marvel that someone's adventure is shaped mostly by the people who they meet along the way.

I'm living in my fifth continent, and the kindness the world continues to show me keeps me doing this.

PHILOSOPHY

You have to take chances to make chances.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Whenever internationals are in my hometown of Vancouver, BC, I make every effort to making them feel welcome. I value a "mi casa, su casa" attitude to accomodation.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Teaching is learning, and Learning is Teaching. My experiences in the classrooms in Canada and around the world have highlighted the incredible relationship between educator and learner. They really need each other for the whole thing to work right.

Learn: If there is something to look at, I will look at it a little closer and a little longer. If there is a box of cereal at the table, I will read all for sides. I will ask questions. I want to always learn more.

Share: Sharing life experiences, memories, and adventures makes absolute sense to me. If I can help someone experience the world in a more complete and genuine way, that is something I am willing to do.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a social, helpful, and thoughtful person. I generally ignore the technological advances of the world; I won't be on my phone. I will be talking, walking, and sharing with any host I meet. I have one life, and I have every intention of focusing on the moment at hand.

I would love to get to know you, help you in any way, and share some genuinely good experiences.

I can garden. I can build. I can teach. I can listen.
