About Me

Hey fellow Couchsurfers! Let me tell you a bit about myself - I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada and am now a Canadian living in Colorado. I graduated from CSU in Fort Collins, class of 2013 with a degree in Economics and a degree in Corporate Finance. I worked in local bicycle shops throughout my undergraduate degree as a mechanic and am now working as an Economist for a global manufacturing firm based out of Boulder, Colorado.
I am a hobbyist musician, focusing on "things with strings" - specifically, 6 string acoustic guitar, 12 string acoustic guitar, mandolin, and 5 string banjo. I get together with friends often and jam folk/ bluegrass music.
I love to spend my time experiencing life - the type of experiences I prefer to pursue are: live music, camping, backpacking, hiking, biking, disc golf, traveling, cooking and beer!
I am looking forward to meeting new friends via couchsurfing! Fort Collins is an amazing community and great way to experience the Colorado Front Range!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite music... where do I begin? I've got over 200 vinyl records in my personal collection. Every genre from jazz to folk to rock to blues!
Favorite movies - cult classics (pulp fiction, big lebowski, etc.); fantasy (lord of the rings, GoT, etc.); some drama, some comedy...
Favorite books - Ayn Rand is one of my favorite authors - I also enjoy fantasy (see above) and have been catching up on the classics (Arthur Conan Doyle, James Joyce, Herman Melville, etc.)
