About Me


All action, no theory


I am very enthusiastic about life, super environmentally and socially aware and open to many different kinds of experiences. I'm addicted to lists, old movies and books, eating well (mostly vegetarian), staying physically and mentally active.


Right now, I'm living my life from one moment to the next, I can't seem to successfully plan anything, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop trying! I guess this is a tragedy and also a blessing. I live because I breathe and I try to impact the planet with the smallest footprint possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Used to be the moderator of the Ottawa group, but now I am travelinggggggg.
