About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get a haircut.

ABOUT ME

I'm from Halifax, on east coast of Canada. I've been living here pretty much my whole life, except for the few times I've had a chance to escape. Playing music with other people is my passion in life. I am mostly a bass player, but recently have become interested in instruments that go shicka shicka or clicckidy clap. I like to laugh, and be geeky and play chess. I'm learning to get over my fear of stickers. I like to learn more about arts, nature and language. Too much political discussion is like too much sugar... energetic at first but after about an hour or two I need a nap. I am a cat person, but I can chill with my dogs too. And I'm a sucker for some good yerba mate.

PHILOSOPHY

-2+2=5
-Breath in the good air, breath out the bad air
-I am not an emcee because the Rza said so
-Rick Simpson is a fucking hero
-Improvise!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Couchsurf and have conversations over beers, coffee, delicious food, amazing scenery or any combo of these. I believe taking part in this kind of travel is one way to make the world a friendlier and more accepting place.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couch surfed many times in Canada without ever using this website. Also, I used the website with great success in Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Canada (mostly Quebec). I have met so many great people since I joined!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitch hiked from British Columbia to Nova Scotia with 20 dollars in my pocket in 9 days.

Teach, Learn, Share

Bass Guitar and music theories is what I could share. Ive also got some good recipes for hummus and other veggie related foods. Teach me how to say things in other tongues and I always like to hear about peoples travels. Also, if you are a musician, I would love to jam. I have no instrument while traveling but I am open to playing/learning to play anything... drums, turntables, synth, loop pedal, maracas, rebab, trombone, claves, kazoo, bass, whatever. I am also a certified yoga teacher.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I have many stories of weird/funny/dangerous things that have happened in my travels over the years. Also I can share a bit of what I know of music and yoga. Good times!!
