About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To understand stories and how they affect people.

ABOUT ME

I am all about stories, telling them, capturing them, listening to them. "Truth is not in the facts, but in the meaning."

I am an actor. I have done a lot of theatre for young audiences; traveling extensively through Quebec, Eastern Ontario, New Brunswick and Manitoba with shows.

I also capture the stories of old people and compile them into biographical videos. check that out here...www.digitalfootprint.ca

Couchsurfing is important to me as it encompasses a few things that I think are essential to my life. These are; hospitality, kindness to strangers, opening horizons and minds (through people you meet) and also travel.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted many people here in Toronto and in Kingston. It's been a great experience. I've surfed only the once, in Istanbul, and look forward to repeating the experience.

Interests

Images, Theatre, Dance, Guitar, Brief feelings of Enlightenment, kayaking, making films.

Music, Movies & Books

Aldous Huxley, Terry Pratchett(sp?), A book called "Luminosity" by Frank and Gillian.Douglas Coupland. Music..ermm, whatever my friends give me...and movies...I like stories that are honest, and not overly dramatic; like "Etre et Avoir," "lost in Translation," "Spirited Away."

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of a few people that made the longest paper-clip chain IN THE WORLD!! Three and a half times the length of Manhatten Island!!

Teach, Learn, Share
