Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted and I have traveled in Canada.
I have enjoyed meeting various people and being able to travel and do my sport affordably.
I mostly paddle a flat water racing kayak. I do some of those other activities for fun and fitness. I am pretty good at xc skiing, used to race. I play flute, keyboard, and ukelele. I like to sing. I like yoga, contra dance, contact improv, free dance. I don't like to stay out late. I speak French pretty well. Other languages, not so much. I care about ethics and fairness. I like science. I attend nerdy science lectures on occasion. I like to watch birds, and notice flowers and trees. I like cats, dogs, chickens, frogs... Right now I am focusing a lot on paddling.

Music, Movies, and Books
I like a lot of different kinds of music. Celtic music, country, folk, lots of other kinds of music. I like the books The Boys in the Boat and A Beautiful Mind.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I spent 2 years primarily helping out a close friend who had cancer. I miss him a lot now. I was with him the day he died. We had a very meaningful communication without speaking.
Teach, Learn, Share
I tutor math, and I can teach sports I know how to do. I am a personal trainer. I do Thai massage, which is done fully clothed. It is a combination of assisted stretching and acupressure. I like to grow vegetable gardens, and have decades of experience organic gardening. I got my bachelor of science degree in Human Movement and Health, and did my final project about mental health alternatives. I am glad to answer questions on those topics.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can cook healthy food. I can do some math/science tutoring, gardening, and answering of questions about health, mental health, and physical activity. I am willing to help out.
