About Me

ABOUT ME

I just finished a contract for the Canadian government and am doing a small road trip across the states. I work in environmental protection and am passionate about improving the environment for future generations.

I like to try new things, foods, cooking, learn about different cultures and their languages. I love the outdoors and spend much of my time inside thinking about being outside. I like growing my own food and trying out interesting new recipes!

PHILOSOPHY

Follow the golden rule: do unto others as you would like done unto yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been trying my best to host as many people in Toronto as I could before I start traveling. I know its always difficult to open your home to strangers or to travel to a place and not be able to afford proper accommodations. So far, it has worked out great for me and I hope to continue to help out others when I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met some wonderful people through couchsurfing and hope to continue to do so. After couchsurfing in Quebec City, I saw how one man put his trust in people and how graciously it was returned. That inspired me to be a good host as well.

Interests

I enjoy meeting new people and learning about how the world works. I try to live a good and ethical life. I enjoy learning new things and pushing myself to do the best I can.

Learning languages, current affairs, growing food, animals. Sports: cross-country skiing, bouldering.
