About Me


I've worked in an uncanny amount of places/jobs, especially around Italy. I like to longboard, draw potatoes, and eat pizza in bed.
I also like messing with people. In a friendly way. It means I like you.

I grew up in Quebec but have travelled around quite a bit in the last 5 years.
I drink a lot of red wine and craft beers. I love outdoorsy activities like picnics, hiking, beaching, and singing in the woods. I'm trying new things all the time, even if I don't really want to be. It's fun.

I'm really interested in visual arts, but all sorts of arts really. Maybe everything can be an art. I also find myself drawn to language in many of it's forms. It's like a puzzle, and that's fun.

I recently moved to Montreal after traveling in Korea and Japan for 2 months. I have my own apartment here now so I'm starting to host !
I stayed with 10+ people on my trip so I think now I have to return the favour hahaha.


*Side note don't get too confused by my references. My first name is Shannon, but now I go by my middle name, Quinlan.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really like the community. I think that you can meet some really great people on here. My trouble is that the only time I do have time is when I am travelling myself. I try to host, but it's hard. Send me a message if you read this and really feel like maybe we can be friends/should meet. That might work. :)
