About Me

I manage a multi-crop farm nestled in the heart of the Southern Gulf Islands on Canada's southernmost west coast. When I'm not growing food and selling it to locals, I'm often hiking, playing music, enjoying dinners with friends, or simply enjoying a coffee as I watch the world go by. I'm enthusiastic about learning new things, and enjoy meeting new people with different expertise. I am accustomed to living with different people in varied situations, which is perhaps best exemplified by the myriad of international interim workers who have come through the farm house where I live. I look forward, potentially, to meeting you too!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I finished my degree in December 2014 and don't have to get back to my farming job until April. This means that I have almost two months to get out of town and see some new places and meet new people. Because I escaped post secondary debt by a hair, I am most certainly on a strict traveling budget. Couch surfing seems like a good venue to explore, so here I am! I've barely seen any of the US, and I'm looking forward to experiencing things beyond the tourist brochures. Meeting new people may be helpful to this end, as I'm most likely traveling solo!
