Current mission? To show the love and respect I show everyone I come across. On a global scale.
I'm a one-of-a-kind, who lives a life all of her own. When settled I work hard, and similarily, when off, I play in equal measure. I don't practice judgement and you can often hear my laughter from a few houses down. I love to meet new people, learning new insights and seeing the way others live the world. Everybody is deserving of love and respect, and I make an effort to give equal measure of each to everyone I come across.
Everyone is deserving of love and respect, no matter what. Live in the presence, as not doing so is the root cause of much of the mental instability and disease we see in the world today. When in doubt, breathe.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Currently, I participate as a surfer, as all of my belongings are currently in storage and for as long as my journey lasts, I have no place to call home other than the couch I sleep on that night.
I'm a novice to couchsurfing, but no stranger to the process. I have the full understanding that I'm a guest, my time is to be limited and cherished, and that you, as a host- have jobs, commitments, and adventures of your own to experience as you see fit. I'm very self-reliant, so I do everything within my power to minimize my impact as a guest on your daily life.
I love to be outdoors and find myself outside both in my working and leisure hours. This can range anywhere from biking to hiking, swimming, snowshoeing, participating in flash mob events, taking pictures of landscapes and people, and engaging in my art practice (I use every medium under the sun).

Music, Movies, and Books
Everything but pop, polka, and country- and even they have their exceptions. I'm very interested in listening to new music, same can be said for other forms of media. As for books, I do editing as part of my living, so whatever my writer gives me, I do.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Top of the list as of late is riding my bike (which was currently adorned to look like a giant pink duct-tape unicorn) naked through the streets of Downtown Vancouver, Canada.
Others include standing at the summit of Dam Mountain in BC after a lengthy snowshoe hike to get to the top. Exploring new mountains and streams from coast to coast. Experiencing the majesty and power of the ocean on both the Pacific and Atlantic side of Canada. And most importantly- living in the present.
