About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Working the Okanagan on farms and traveling accross Canada

ABOUT ME

Mmm pretty easy going, mostly into music and crafting. Eventually would like to own my own business. Still in idea process'. I like traveling and am just getting into Couch Surfing although I've had my profile for a while now. I love seeing live music and will travel to see bands that don't come to Canada very often. I'm about to embark on a trip through the Okanagan and trying to find work where ever I can. My top priority is to learn new things all the time, be positive (but negative if necessary) thinking and enjoy life. none of these work to die situations. I joke around alot and like to have a good time with friends.

PHILOSOPHY

Learn from what you do or see. Live from what you learn.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I will sleep on your couch! :) For now, that's all I can offer but would like to be able to let someone sleep on my couch one day too. When the time is right. I really like meeting new friendly nice people and like being a nice friendly person back. When I lived in Ontario I let a band of 5 guys sleep in my basement. Brazil? the band. haha

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

ummm... slept on some friends couches... never off CSing yet. Had some CSers for the first time in Vancouver... All raally awesome people. Have done woofing in the past and it's a little similar except with working experience and such. Had such a good experience meeting nice people all the time. Always good vibes and very interesting kind people.

Interests

Realy into music everything from Sigur Ros to Dillinger escape PLan. Wide variety, love going to live shows and having a good time.

Am very interested in art, crafts and gardening. I think they're all as one in my mind right now. Gardening is a new obsession. Creating soomething beautiful and something that may help the community is something I'm really passionate about. Would like to take a horticultural course very soon and see where that takes me. For now I will be working on farms for another month in BC and then traveling accross Canada. See how awesome life can be.
