About Me


locate my pants.


I'm a 32 year old Vancouverite. I grew up in the suburbs and moved out after graduating from university with a film degree. I worked for a kid's cartoon for a long time, but had a change of heart. I began to teach myself guitar and worked as a nanny for a few years. I quit my dayjob 3 years ago when my career took off. I work from home, managing/booking two projects. I like to read, write short stories, play board games, cook for my friends, and run.

I don't smoke cigarettes, and I only drink the free alchohol I'm given at gigs. I'm also 420 friendly.

My roommates are awesome of an equal or lesser value. Just kidding. My roommate Mark is a 31 year old, highly educated ESL teacher - but is currently unemployed. He likes languages, Star Trek, D&D, and baking cookies.

My other roommate Matt (aka Manfred, the Manfriend) is a 30 y/o Forestry masters student at UBC. His hair changes colour all the time (with dye. not cuz he's a mutant or anything). He reads tarot cards. He rides his bike a lot. He loves life and hates to miss out on anything, especially fun.


Why worry when you can wonder?

And also, a comet is just a comet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I went to many CS parties in NYC and began my involvement there. It was too fun for words! I also couchsurfed in San Francisco and went to the CS party there as well. I have hosted a number of travelers in Vancity, and I also generally enjoy couches.


My whole perspective on travel has changed because of this website. Its absolutely the way to go, no question about it.

Okay: I can do some stuff. I can cook thai food, my curry is best. I can do a full body thai massage. I sing and play the guitar. I use Final Cut Pro to edit movies. I can fold shirts really fast. I used to bartend, so I got some good boozipies. I can make dreads. I make tasty chocolate truffles, often special. Um... I can make stuffed animals out of old stockings. I can ride a bike. I can organize your crap. I'm a good driver. I can solve a rubix cube (its not that hard, trust me).
