About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Smile, dance, laugh, explore!

ABOUT ME

I love being introduced to new people, places, music, food, drinks... anything to help keep the regular routine of 'work, eat, sleep' more interesting!

PHILOSOPHY

You really can change someone's day by offering up a smile. Be open, have fun and help other people do the same :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted, surfed and I tell EVERYONE that will listen to me about this amazing project!!

Currently I am a bit out of touch the CS community. I can't host where I'm living right now so it makes things difficult, but I am still a CSer at heart :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The references generally say it all.

Interests

Music, bike rides, the beach, eating, drinking... enjoying all of those things with people.

For day time activities I am rather in love with biking. So if you're interested in a bike tour of Vancouver then get in touch, showing people around by bike is one of my favorite things to do. Or I can just tell you all the best bike routes to take, I'm pretty good for that!

For evening activities I especially enjoy live music, mostly indie rock/pop, getting into some electronic stuff and will go see pretty much anything live. If you're heading to a show look me up, chances are I am already planning on going!

Music, Movies & Books

Just to name a few...
Music: Sufjan Stevens, Jens Lekman, Radiohead, Battles, Fleet Foxes, M83, Burial, Iron & Wine, Leonard Cohen, Devendra Banhart

Books: Douglas Adams, Douglas Coupland, George Orwell, Aldus Huxley, Milan Kundera, Jane Austen, Homer, classics in general

Movies: I'm easily entertained.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

This might not be considered in the 'amazing' category for many on this site but a life changing event for me was living abroad. I was in a small town where I was a visible minority, people would point and stare and laugh at the white girl... this was a huge eye opener for me!

I can also wow you with stories of things like parachuting and white water rafting :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Say hi to a stranger on the street, it really could make someone's day, you just never know. I will likely ask you what you are doing with your life, how you got there and why. I am trying to figure out what to do with myself career wise right now and am looking to learn from others.I can teach you how to bake the easiest brownies and cupcakes, cookies, cheesecake, fudge... I love to bake :)

Countries I've Visited

Canada, China, Cuba, Greece, Mexico, Netherlands, Turkey, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Canada, South Korea
