About Me


To see and truly experience all of South & Central America and continue making wonderful friends all over!


I am friendly, easy going, spontaneous and my friends compliment me on my spirit. I really love adventures and my greatest passion is travel. Not the all-inclusive kind of travel.., more like grab a Lonely Planet guide, buy a one way ticket, pick up a map and go! (and a compass, I have a horrible sense of direction) I am curious and interested in other cultures and strive to learn languages and get to know the locals. In essence, it inspires me....


You only live once! See, do , experience everything you can in this lifetime. Do so with respect and consideration for others, their cultures and beliefs. Don't be afraid of death, be afraid of the unlived life...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Had a few great experience surfing in Florida and Argentina. I also have hosted a few travelers in my home in Panama. I am finding it hard to get "verified" on couchsurf because we don't have actual addresses in Panama so a bit difficult to receive mail. But I do actually live here! lol My primary business is Vacation Rentals, I rent apartments in Panama City (mostly short term) and I also rent the casitas on my property. When the casitas are not rented, and if I am here in Panama, then I may be able to host a surfer, it really just depends on timing and what's going on.


Had some impromptu experiences where I've stayed with friends of friends, and backpackers have stayed with me. The traveling community is a tight community and we love to give and receive. It's the most affordable and fun way to see the world and make new friends. I couch surfed in Florida in December thanks to this site...had an awesome time, made some great friends!!

Teach, Learn, Share

Being Canadian, and having spent many years traveling and living in Latin American countries.. I feel I have a lot to share with regards to experience and immersion. I believe in Random Acts of Kindness.. and making people smile in as many languages as possible!
