About Me


to surf to laugh and to form spaces into occupiable places


I grew up in Thornhill, just north of Toronto, in Canada.

I'm an intern architect and past work has included researching in something called the ElementsLAB at the University of British Columbia. The LAB seeks to engage communities with urban form making as it responds to greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

I love meeting new people but am a little bit of a quiet person.

Other than that, I never know what to write in these things.... I'm got my cooking skills from my dad, I wish I was a better surfer, and my bucket list includes trying to make a 2 person hovercraft and learning to play the trumpet. Oh, and I'd like to be able to do the moonwalk, including the sideways way.


I over plan and over stress everything. Currently working on that. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My friend introduced me to Couchsurfing, and I think it's wonderful. I used it to get my friends and I through China.

I'd love to host people, but my roommate isn't down with it. :-(


Great! Everything has been great!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I used to be a Navy Diver working out of Halifax Nova Scotia. Did a lot of cold water diving and a short exercise in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Best part was we got to jump out of a helicopter into arctic waters.
