About Me


Keeping in Touch


I lived in Nazareth, Pennsylvania which is home to Martin Guitar, pretty awesome. Originally, I am from Manitoba, which is in Canada. I have worked as an educator in international education (ESL, international programs, etc.) for some time. I now am I a Fulbright Scholar teaching and researching in Turkey. I enjoy meeting others from different countries and cultures as well as those within the USA. Otherwise, I am a very polite, sociable, and easy going fellow.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to travel and meet nice people. People are what make places good to visit.


I like to play tavla and I like to learn different languages. I like to play the ukulele and sing.
