About Me


Travel and work, work to travel, meet people, see the world


I love to work hard and travel. I love to meet new people and try new things. I hope to visit each continent and know my own country thoroughly. I am a tree-planter in Canada with 5 seasons under my belt, I have been to every province in Canada, but none of the territories (yet). I lived in China for 6 months. I have hitch-hiked +12,000 km in Canada, +14,000 km around Australia, and 6,000 Km in Europe.


The individual human subject is the sole author of their destiny. We are entirely free and responsible for ourselves. No one can live for us, we must create our own lives and paint our own canvas. Having said that, the only thing that makes live worth it is each other.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted in China (4 provinces), Europe (9 countries), Canada... Hosted while I was in Nelson B.C.

I love the open-mindedness, the travel stories, shared experiences and so much more that comes with travel. CS personalizes my experiences and links them with anyone I meet through CS.


Traveling, eating new food, local culture- especially music-, seeing landscapes- especially mountains-, working hard and making my own money, reading. I went to school for political science and philosophy and continue to be passionate about these subjects.
