About Me


think of something intelligent and witty to write here


Writing these things are the worst. I like to joke around a lot. It really gets on my nerves when people make homonym mistakes. I also hate when you are typing on a PC and you somehow turn the insert key on and it starts replacing the things you've already written (so now I have a Mac.) I am up too late, as a rule.


"Shiny hair, that's my life ambition."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted in Berlin and in my hometown back in Canada and met up with plenty of people who were just passing through. I have also attended plenty of meetings and events here. I have surfed a few times and it was always great.


Music? - Indie, Folk, Rock. That seems like a vague enough answer. Good movies, good food and good drinks are always a plus, too.
