- Last login 11 days ago
Join Couchsurfing to see Teanna’s full profile. It’s free!
ATTENTION: WE ARE A TWO TRAVELLERS!
Teanna have been on couch surfing since 2011 and Denis my partner, is experiencing it for the first time! We find it easier to organize our conversations stemming from one profile. Please read! We have answered all sections both individually and as a pair. CANT WAIT TO MEET YOU AWESOME SOULS!
I am an artist, aspiring cellist, vocalist, hula hooper and traveller!
Career wise I am an Art Instructor for an organization that caters to persons with a variety of mental illness. Most of my students at home are schizophrenic, bipolar, etc.
I fell in love with my best friend and he has supported my dream of exploring as many countries as I can before I leave the earth, seeing things through a perspective aside from our own is so important, we are stoked to see the world together!
Hey! I'm Denis. My main gig is being a musician and drum instructor in Edmonton Alberta. I play drums with two original rock groups, The Gibson Block and Lutra Lutra, and am a university student studying economics (taking some time off at the moment haha). I'm also very lucky to be engaged to the love of my life, Teanna. Hope we can chill and make some memories when I'm in your town.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
We love people. And we want to know more of them and gain some real genuine experiences and insights on how other "time zones tick".
We love the idea of getting to know a place by meeting the people who call that place home. We trust humans more than travel brochures,and more so, humans who aren't paid to be kind to us. We are so curious and excited to learn what makes you happy about where you live. We are happy to jam with anyone, and Denis can offer friendly fun lessons on drums, guitar, bass, and Teanna can help with vocals. I'm also a talented consumer of alcohol and/or coffee, so we can have some good chats while knocking a few back!
Abstract Art, Cello, Vocals, Music Festivals, Eco- conscientious, Animals, Science, Economics, Philosophy, World Community, HULA HOOPING
I love seeing live music, drinking beer, and having a good time. Economics, and genuine conversations.
Music, Movies, and Books
Girl, Interupted. P.S I love you, The Freedom Writers, Away We Go, The Reader, Adam, V for Vendetta, Imagine Me And You , Schindler's list, Life is Beautiful, Gia, Two Night Stand, Push, Spotlight, Sleeping With Other People etc.
I'm a lover of goofy comedy films cause I think life is serious enough. Any Jim Carrey or Robin Williams movie is right up my alley, but I also love the Cohen Brothers and Wes Anderson.
I love music. I love the cello, I love folk, contemporary alternative, indie. Favourite bands are ALT-J , Chet Faker, Oh Wonder, Garth Stevenson, Keaton Henson with Ron Ford (Romantic Works album) Sigur Ros, Daughter, etc. Really anything with a tight harmony, good vocals and witty lyrics.
I am a classic rock, metal, soul, and funk junkie. Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Motown, and Sly Stone are some of my favs.
I really enjoy books that reflect the human experience intimately. anything by Ellen Hopkins, wasteland, banana kiss, beautiful little lullibies, the freedom writer's diary, the diary of anne frank, go ask alice, and soo much more. i love to read!!!
I read a lot, mostly non-fiction (history and general interest) and spiritual books, like my favourite Autobiography of a Yogi.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Realizing that the acknowledgment and pursuit of my passions in life was the only way for me to experience happiness has been an amazing switch for me. Singing and hoop dancing makes my soul feel full, and I try to do it as often as possible. The feel of a cello vibrating against my body as sound releases is one of the most grounding things I've done. And I plan to do it again and again until it sounds as magical as it feels!
I got to open for a lifelong hero, Burton Cummings of The Guess Who, in 2014. That performance was a beautiful outdoor show for 5000 people. Best gig to date!
Teach, Learn, Share
There is no point in getting upset over something that you can't control, so choose to be happy, love life and look out for yourself. you can never know too much but you should still always be aware that you dont know everything and be open to learning more! never forget the lessons you have been lucky enough to learn.
Life is impermanence, annica.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I am happy to keep the space clean whether it's a mess I've made or one they didnt have time to clean up!
I have lots of stories of travels, and experiences to share, I'd love to show they how to make a method of my art if they are interested, I'd also be glad to hoop dance for my hosts, show them some cool stuff. most people are pretty pleased with this!
I happy to jam with anyone, and can offer friendly fun lessons on drums, guitar, bass, and Teanna can help with vocals. I'm also a talented consumer of coffee, so we can have some good chats and hopefully create some great memories.
