About Me


to accept that I know nothing of Spain, Spanish and Barcelona and truly enjoy learning as much as possible about all of them


I have travelled all around North American, mostly climbing, plenty of hitchhiking. But I this is my first time in Europe. I'm trying to work and live in Barcelona for a year before continuing traveling, aiming to really experience this place and it's people.

I am trying to teach myself Spanish. I've been inspired by many of my students who came to Canada with very little English skill, and will do the same.

I love rock climbing, surfing, longboarding and music. I'm a very social, open-minded person.. I try not to say no to anything (at least the first time).

I want to constantly be challenged and learning, and teaching what I've learned to others when I can.


We are all more alike than we will ever admit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was verified at my house in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island, Canada and I hosted couchsurfers here and at my place in Vancouver.


I've had only great experiences so far. I love the philosophy, and I admire the values it inspires.


People. Languages. Music. Adventures. (Rock climbing and surfing, of course.)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching glowing waves crashing on the shores in Tofino at midnight. (phosphorescence/bioluminescence). I had nearly drowned surfing that day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm happy to help anyone with English, and to introduce people to any of my interests. I think sharing stories is a very important part of life.

I plan to find conversation partners who want to practice speaking English and help me with my Spanish.
