About Me


Becoming a "real human being"... a little more each day.


I work at home, which is a mixed blessing, depending on the amount of work I have to do.
A bit of an introvert, which is why my couch is "maybe" available depending of my willingness to open up at any given moment. Take a chance and drop me a note!
Love to read, meditate, contemplate, share life stories, learn what makes people tick. Every one has an amazing story to tell if you just listen.


Buddhadharma, Tao, Liberté

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For now, I'm happy just reading about all you amazing people in here and out there. Oh, and I coincidentally found my first meeting an hour before it was held, and I went. Met cool people. You know.


I met my friend Katrina on the schooner Bel Espoir, then I slept on her couch in a studio she rented in Québec City, then she came to Montreal and slept on mine. Suddenly I had an intuition that we couldn't be the only ones, googled "couch exchange network" and found CouchSurfing.
J'ai rencontré ma nouvelle amie Katrina à bord du Bel Espoir, j'ai dormi sur son divan dans son studio de Québec, puis elle a dormi sur le mien. Intuition fulgurante: nous ne sommes pas seules! J'ai cherché sur Google et me voici.
