To understand stories and how they affect people.
I am all about stories, telling them, capturing them, listening to them. "The 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
And, currently, I am managing a century old, independent cinema in the west end of Toronto.
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 through couchsurging.org , in Istanbul, but have crashed on the couches of many in Europe, Canada and the USA.
Images, Theatre, Dance, Guitar, Brief feelings of Enlightenment, kayaking, making films.
Music, Movies, and 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
many things...I want to learn to kayak better, hold my breath under water for ages, be relaxed all the time, to run further, yoga, ummm, there's more, but i'm trying to think of it all at once and so nothing's coming out!
