About Me


To truely smile everyday from feeling a genuine happiness and excitement for life.


I am a very content and optimistic person, who always looks for the beauty in life. I love letting myself get blown away with the simpler things in our world, but I definitely still appreciate intensely complicated and deep ideas as well. I feel most grounded when I'm close to vast amounts of nature, but still close enough to the art and culture of civilization. This is -what I feel- one of the greatest things about living in Vancouver.


I like to not worry too much about the future and keep the philosophy that things will work themselves out if you're always true to yourself and others. I take life as it comes, and enjoy as much as I can along the way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to participate in as many ways as I can. I'm excited to host as well as just meet up with people in my city, and I like to attend meetings and gatherings either in my city, or wherever I'm traveling at the time! With Couch Surfing, I always find myself in new, unexpected, and exciting places. The best way to experience somewhere new, really is to get to know local people. That way you get to "feel" more of where you are, rather than just "see" it.

I am excited to offer what I have in terms of hosting others. I feel very privileged to live where I do and to have 2 other places in British Columbia to go to as well. So I would love to share them and offer an insight into life in my corner of the globe!


I've hosted in my hometown of Maple Ridge, hosted at one of my family's cabins (at the lake!), met up with people and attended gatherings in Vancouver, offered rides, and given rides :)

I've also surfed in Paris and Reykjavik, and gone on a couple road trips around Iceland with fellow CSers. But probably the best 'gathering' I've attended so far, was participating in Reykjavik's Gay Pride Parade promoting Couch Surfing as gay friendly, with a group of CSers from all over the world!


I very much love to dance, sing, play bass, and to make music and art! (I've recently started acquiring a collection of instruments from around the world!)
I also like to hike, canoe, swim, and sail.
I am very into healthy and natural living, but I do enjoy (and have a PASSION for) specialty coffee and magnificent tea. And of course, I love anything 'travel.'

Music, Movies, and Books

The book "The Tao of Pooh" by Benjamin Hoff is one I'd definitely recommend.
Currently, I'm reading "14,000 Things To Be Happy About," by Barbara Ann Kipfer, which is what it says. We have a lot to be happy about :)

I also seem to love Icelandic music. They're doing something right over there!
And big drums are cool too :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Danced in the Opening Ceremony for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver! I was a tap dancer in the tap dancing and fiddling part called 'Rhythms of the Fall' :D

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you all I know about coffee and sushi! (Two things that SCREAM 'Vancouver'). I'm eager to learn about café life everywhere else in the world too!
I would also love to share making music and art with anyone willing. I have an electric bass and the beginnings of my international instrument collection... so let's jam!
Other than that, let's share cultures, ideas, and points of view!
