About Me

**Official ambassador of Vancouver**

Yup my profile is long. Please read 1-5 at least if you'd like to stay..it'll answer a lot of your questions and help check our compatibility.

1) Please have a complete profile

2) Don't copy/paste generic messages and forget to change the name ( Yup,I get a lot of ' hi darren' 'hi steve' etc)

3) Your request should tell me why you're visiting, when, and why me :).

4) Please tell me your favorite FOOD in your message.

5) I usually dont accept trips more than 2 weeks in the future.

GENERAL RULES.

-Monday to Friday you'll have to be out of the house from 730am-5pm. CURRENTLY ONLY HOSTING WEEKENDS.

-Have some idea of what you want to do here. I'm happy to help with ideas or feedback but won't plan your entire trip.

-Be independent. If I'm able to spend time with you or do things I am more than happy to. I love to hear stories and adventures. What I don't like is babysitting.

-Be friendly and understand that although I am inviting you to stay, it is still my home. Please treat it as such.

-Clean up after yourself or I'll cancel my invite to stay. Too many people expect me to clean their mess. It ain't happening.

ABOUT MY PLACE/VANCOUVER

《《 I live in Port Moody, not Vancouver》》

I am 3 minutes walking from the train and 30 minutes by train to downtown. That said, most don't care and everyone tends to love staying with me. Depends what you are here for. I'm pretty damn awesome anyways ;)

《《 NOT REQUIRED BUT...》》

If you come stay with me and are able, would appreciate if you can bring something small from your country. Something that can be hung with pins is ideal. (Something from a dollar store is ok) A pin, small flag, etc. I am creating a board with doodads.

ABOUT ME

I'm a really easy guy to get along with. I'll talk to anyone and once I get going I guarantee I'll make you laugh. I love meeting new people whether its for a few hours or a few days.

PHILOSOPHY

Live your life before its gone!
I'll sleep when I'm Dead!

You can determine a lot about a persons personality based on how they treat those they have no obligation to.
