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

I like to play music and would love to have a little jam if there are instruments around. I am also interested in yoga, fitness, martial arts, movies, agriculture/permaculture and food. So anywhere that I can share or learn about these things is a true blessing to me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have plenty of funny/weird/dangerous stories from my travels that we can share a good laugh over. Also if you need some corrections on a yoga pose I am a yoga instructor and like to share knowledge with people about this subject.
