About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To survive my studies with low or minimal debt

ABOUT ME

I'm a 27-year-old Canadian guy looking striving for a simple and meaningful life. I have a very silly sense of humour and listen more than I talk. I'm also gay, so if that's not okay with you, I definitely don't want you in my apartment.

PHILOSOPHY

Keep learning and don't censor yourself. It's better if people dislike you for who you are than love you for what you aren't.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I used couchsurfing while traveling through Canada. I've also used it to meet people while travelling and meet international visitors to my own city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Magnificent. All my hosts so far have been so friendly and helpful, and I'm excited to possibly return the favour.

Interests

Minimalism
Being as eco-friendly as possible
Controversial subjects: sex, drugs, politics, money, religion. Bring it on.
Healthy cities
Meditation and Yoga
Social Justice and Advocacy

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: The Beatles, Classical, 60s-70s vintage psychedelic rock

Movies: I really don't watch that many, so I don't have a favourite.

Books: I really dig "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins, and also "The Ethical Slut". I like radical ideas and philosophies that are challenging but very simple at the same time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing = terrifying? Impressive? Both? Hmm. I've done skydiving. Also I arrived in Paris with nowhere to live and was almost homeless with no support network. And I bike through Winnipeg winters.

I know that wasn't just one thing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Stretching! Yoga, gymnastics, and martial arts inspired
Human Rights concepts and history (I worked in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights)
Microwave cooking- legit, with fresh veggies.
Bike maintenance
History of Winnipeg and Canada
French

My wish-list:
Dancing
More cooking styles (vegetarian friendly)

Not really looking to be a guest for the moment, but I will take care of this at that point.
