To have loads and loads of fun.
I was born and raised Albertan. In my teenage years, that meant visits to the world's biggest ___. Seriously, Alberta has over-sized sausages, mallards, Ukranian eggs and UFO landing pads. Edmonton is home to the world's third-largest baseball bat! Now I try to make a living by writing.
Live life to the fullest. Or near to that. Or just kind of live it. Or whatever.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to couchsurfer, but trying hard to get involved. I've already hosted several guests and had a great time. I've surfed in Fort McMurray, Washington DC, New York and Boston.
I'm trying to build all the experience I can. I had an earlier account when I lived in Ottawa and hosted a traveler from Germany. Just recently, I hosted a girl from Vancouver named Robyn. Also hosted a prairie skid named Cody for two weeks.
Art of any kind. Journalism. Camping. Beer. Food.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When I was in 11th grade, a bunch of friends and I drove out to an abandoned farm house outside Edmonton. While exploring, we heard shrieking from below. A man wielding a chain saw began chasing us. I hid under a pile of leaves for an hour. I was caught by a flashlight beam. The whole thing ended up being an elaborate practical joke. But it's still the closest I've been to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
