About Me

CURRENT MISSION

“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.” - Oscar Wilde

ABOUT ME

I'm a bit of a dreamer. I love sharing good food. I speak way too fast. I'm definitely a pack animal. I love to want.

I'm an American from Miami but at the age of 18 packed up and moved to Montreal, an amazing city in French Canada (Quebec). I have a French mother and grew up spending my summers outside of Bordeaux, and a father who is half Cuban. Growing up in Miami means that I know more about Celia Cruz (salsa) than Keith Richards (country music). I guess that makes me Francoamericubanian?

I like to cook, I cook every night almost without fail. I go through phases, and right now I think my phase is couscous.

I love life's little indulgences. I can make a chocolate bar last a week and a bottle of wine last a minute.

I'm quite sociable. Enjoy meeting new folks. Always befriended the new kid in class.

PHILOSOPHY

Keep it simple.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I used to host surfers before I began this latest jaunt. But now I'm wandering and I want to make couchsurfing one of the ways that I connect with others.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've always enjoyed my couch surfing experiences.

Interests

Good friends, good laughs, a great meal, a bottle of wine (or 2). I'm really drawn to quirky and rambunctious people.

Music, Movies & Books

Fiction, generally. I read almost every night, but only about 20 pages at a time. I'm on an Oscar Wilde kick, pure genius. Love movies too, the good ones and the bad ones.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Riding on the roof of a pickup truck through the Guajira desert in Colombia with 4 Wayu kids who keep laughing at me, my hips buried deep in a spare tire to keep from getting thrown off into the yellow dust, wondering when I landed on the moon.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to be inspired by others. A great story is what any traveler lives for.

The one thing that I think most people on CS will agree with is that the world is composed of many different types of people with radically different interpretations of how they fit in to the 'bigger picture'. I'm looking for that interpretation.
