About Me


make videos and make people laugh


I am a freelance videographer, an aspiring stand up comedian, and comedy writer. I love travelling immensely. I love hip hop (I host a weekly hip hop radio show), good books, and good movies. I'm outgoing, and love joking around. One of my favourite things about travelling is meeting new people.


Be as happy as you can be without making others less happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope to someday be able to open a couch, but for now I'm just going to see what kind of connections I can make through the site.


I've used couchsurfing to find places to stay a couple of times now. What a great thing!

I've always loved Orangutans, so going to Sumatra and seeing them in the wild was probably one of the coolest things ever.
