About Me

Hello. I am William. I like to play music, to surf (as in, waves... but couches too), to learn history, to discuss and debate existence. I like to watch Seinfeld.

I like cats. I might be a cat. Sometimes, I consider my upbringing to have been more influenced by cats than humans.

Oh, and I LOVE Mexican food.


Enchiladas, Burritos, Taquitos, oh my!


I also love Indian food. And Middle Eastern food. And Italian food, American food, Canadian food, German food. I like it all. Canadian beer is terrible though.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had a seriously great time surfing the couches I encountered across Europe, meeting some great people and experiencing life on the other side of the pond.

I recently got back from a trip in South America where I also did my share of couch surfing. What a great idea this website was founded on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-At the time of writing, I have just returned from an adventurous stint in the Catacombs of Paris.

-I once had to run away from a drugged out man in Buenos Aires who was screaming `tres bien´ at the top of his lungs and making spiderman arm movements.
