About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Eat, travel, study.

ABOUT ME

I am a twenty year old Arts student at UBC and I am located in Kitsilano, Vancouver. I am studying anthropology and I hope to eventually study people and food. Food is a passion of mine, either cooking or consuming. I am not very good with words so I can't elaborate much further but I am relatively new to Vancouver but I love this city greatly.

PHILOSOPHY

"To invite any one, implies that we charge ourselves with their happiness all the time that they are under our roof" - Brillat-Savarin.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

On occasion I attend meet ups but I primarily host, which I have been doing since January. This summer I hope to utilize couchsurfing in many countries across Europe!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Since January I have hosted plenty of amazing travelers all a unique experience, and all truly enjoyable. To me, couchsurfing is a fantastic way to share stories, opinions, thoughts and everything else, whether it is over dinner, a drink or just relaxing in the living room.

Interests

Anthropology, hiking, camping, traveling, eating, cooking.

Music, Movies & Books

I have a small record collection that consists primarily of "indie" releases. I am a big fan of electronic music (house and techno primarily) and music from the early 1900s to the present. I enjoy documentaries and foreign films, often about regions I am trying to better understand.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I backpacked Central America when I was in the 12th grade with my Father; while there we met our foster child through Plan Canada which was a neat experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to learn about your language, culture, cuisine. I would love to share food with you, we can make meals together and at the least I can help show my surfers around the city (which I don't even know that well!)

Countries I've Visited

Albania, Belize, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Mexico, Montenegro, Nicaragua, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, United States

Countries I've Lived In
