About Me

* i did have a 95% rate but then for 2 years wasn't able to host and somehow settings and profile didn't update this. i do my best to respond in a timely manor.


They would tell you that I'm loyal to the core, funny, purposeful, a tour guide wanna-be, a woman with a deep sense of community and a proud Canadian.


i think jogging pants and baggy sweaters are high fashion. i enjoy conversations on the subway. i think eating street meat is classy. make-up is overratted. bottled water is stupid. ice cream should be its own food group. pencils are better than pens. bikes are the future of transportation. laughing til it hurts should happen everyday. i love adventure and travel. i also love the feeling of coming home. i'm confident yet scared, loyal to my core, funny, an amazing friend. i'm beautiful and smart. like each of us broken, but continually restored.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I learn more about myself from others, and I learn more about my community and other places on this big bouncing ball. I appreciate the community of couch surfing and the opportunity to learn and grow with others.


politics and world events. being outside. hiking. the theater. reading. off the beat pubs and coffee houses. travel and adventure. making photos from the clouds and walking in the rain. sports of course: baseball, basketball, volleyball, football. curling and hockey (canadian girl at heart)
