About Me


Spend summer sailing Vancouver Island


Amiable with a curious yet skeptical disposition. Bike mechanic at community co-op bike shop. Most of my daily activities involve running a co-op, commuting on my tiny dingy, sailing, playing accordion, cooking, reading, being mindful, and living on my boat.


If we truly understood ourselves there would be no need for moral ethics, right and wrong would not exist. I believe most in goodness, truth and beauty I hold these as dear virtues.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have done little surfing but I really enjoy meeting new people, try to be as open as possible and enjoy helping others in any what way i can.
