About Me


Connecting with others for future artistic, fun collaborations and adventures!


I like to have a good laugh, to try new and artistic things.

I'm always organizing fun adventures for me and my friends like scavenger hunts, picnics, dinners, brunches, seeing visual art or live performance, hosting costume & theme parties, spending time outdoors, camping, going to electronic music festivals, and more.

I would rather spend money on nice food and drink, and quality ingredients to make at home.

I'm at night owl and can pack a lot of activity in to one day, but I also love to sleep, and I'm really good at it.

People say I smile a lot and am pretty easy going.


try everything once
everything in moderation
variety is the spice of life

I like to take a different route, rather than the same way back, even if it means getting a little lost.

I have a growing bucket list.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to have a lot of fun, either out or having a chill night in. I like to dance, create art, to make food and have nice conversations together with new and old friends, and different types of people.

It's nice to learn about new things through other people.


I've hosted and been hosted many times over - not just on this site, just in life in general.


i really love going around town on a bicycle
checking out art & seeing live performance and hidden jewels or favourite local hang outs

never one to sit still for very long - it's in my genes
