About Me


To host as many Couch Surfers as possible from all over the world,


I've traveled the world, hosted by people including om Holland, Belgium, France, the United States, Mexico just to name a few. many people in my life.

Now, I want to travel some more and make friends from all over the world.
Also, I want to set the benchmark for couch surfing, and provide a haven for couch surfers, so they can have a safe place to relax and call home.


this can get too dicey.
Love is what makes the world go around.
Be respectful of others, and keep an open mind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Word of mouth.
Give a pleasant experiance to other travelers who stay here in my home on the west coast of Canada, Vancouver.


I met this cool guy, Miko from Slovenia.
I upgraded him from couch to private room.
Over the past year, I have been able to host many couch surfers, and I pride myself in giving them the best experiance that Vancouver can offer.
In return, when I have a chance to travel, I always to to meet or surf a couch. The experiances are pricesless, the stories are endless, and the food and drinks are always an over abudance.

Through Couch Surfing, I have made valuable friendships, people that I can trust, and stay in couch with.

Couch Surfing is the modern way term for the spirit of hospitality.


coin collecting, decorating, gardening, traveling the world, and always trying to plan my next surfing destination. I also enjoy movies, going out exploring different cultures, and languages.

I enjoy very much hosting guests in my house, and creating a home for them away from home.
