About Me

CURRENT MISSION

?

I dream of employment.

ABOUT ME

I am Canadian, a Taurus, a humanist, an atom bomb and the youngest person you will ever know to act exactly like a senior citizen.

PHILOSOPHY

Hope.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Begging people last minute for couches in truly organized style.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed couches in Copenhagen, Barcelona, Munich, Mariehamn, Sofia, Vienna, Halifax, New York City, Bordeaux, Beirut, Stockholm, Gdansk and Reykjavík. I had some lovely meet-ups in Saint Lucia, Caracas, Tórshavn, Curaçao, Saint Petersburg, Québec City, Ekaterinburg, Moscow and Warsaw as well.

I've hosted five sets of couchsurfers here in Montréal and enjoyed every minute of it. I've also given one person a tour of Montréal so far and would love to do so again!

Interests

Writing, travelling, breathing.

Continuing to do the above. Preferably simultaneously.

Music, Movies & Books

Films involving alinear stories, subtitles, arbitrary dance sequences and at least one case of sexual hypertension.

Music involving a piano, violins, cellos and feminism or, better yet, that has been left to age for at least a century in a cool, dark place.

Books by Carpentier, Nabokov, Oe, Rushdie, Atwood, Vonnegut, Gary or Bulgakov.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Biked across the volcanic terrain of Iceland to dance around a midnight bonfire in celebration of the summer solstice. Interned in Caracas and slept in a hammock near Angel Falls. Won a free trip to Russia. Took the Trans-Siberian from Moscow to Vladivostok. Hitchhiked in the Faroe Islands with an affable Finn. Saw a play I wrote get performed.

One? I can't count.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach me to speak, cook and think like you. I'll teach you how to say 'sorry' too often and the proper method of drinking bagged milk.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Big smiles, bad puns, good music and true stories.
