About Me


Avoid real life for as long as possible


I take a lot of pictures, eat a lot of candy and always know the latest celebrity gossip.

And of course, I love to travel. I love exploring new places and meeting new people. I wish I could be a professional tourist.


I used to spend a lot of time being really introspective, trying to figure out the meaning and purpose of everything. I've recently realized that I'm going to miss out on things if I'm too busy trying to find the deeper meaning behind everything and every experience.
Basically, my new goal is to be more spontaneous. I want to live in the moment, do fun and crazy things, and stop worrying about the meaning of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've couch surfed in Montreal, Alaska, Vancouver and Victoria. Each time has been great. I've had awesome hosts who were so fun and interesting. I'm really excited to continue couch surfing and meet more incredible people.
