About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a sweet as job that will pay me to travel the world!!

ABOUT ME

I live and breathe travelling. In fact, I've done it in my sleep. I dream about it, daydream about it, and pretty much everything that I do day-to-day is to ensure I can travel more. So with that said. I associate myself with being a traveller first. After that, I love music. There's a song for every single mood I've ever been in, and there's always a song that will completely brighten up my day. I play guitar, try to make dance music, and I'm learning to play drums. So I also like to think of myself as a musician...or atleast a music-doer.

Oh, I have a day job. It keeps me financially sound and ensures I can do the two things I mentioned above. And pay for my naturopathic doctor.

Another oh, I made a video application back in Nov 2010 for a travelling position. Kinda sums me up in about 2 minutes. And show you a sweet place to visit in Toronto, the next time you're here. Check it out:

PHILOSOPHY

I think it's important everyone goes out and chase their dreams. Be it travelling the world, career ambitions, or doing absolutely nothing at all. Life's too short to worry about what everyone else thinks, or what's happened in the past, or what will happen in the future. Just live life one day at a time, stay positive and do what drives you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been hosting/surfing since 2007. I love it. I've thoroughly enjoyed every couchsurfing experience I've had so far, officially through this site, and otherwise. I love talking about the benefits of CS to newbies, or people who are interested in maybe getting involved in it. I love the community, I love the concept, and I love doing it! I've become good friends with a few of my couchsurfers, and I look forward to surfing your couch on my next big trip!

Can't stop. Won't stop.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've "couchsurfed" quite a few times now through CS, and a few times unofficially. The best time I had was when my mate and I met a Moroccan family on the train and they invited us to stay with them even though they spoke very little English! They got their nephew to take us around the city, made us all our meals, and even let us sleep in their kids' beds. SUPER amazing people! And that's why I'm so open to the idea of couchsurfing. I think it's such a great thing to take people in who are travelling and just show them how your culture and the city. Give them a nice local feel for your town! I'm so grateful for the times other people have let me surf their couch, I want to pass that experience to others!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sailed on a yacht for 2 months from Darwin to Perth. Everyday was a gift. Amazing people, incredible places, and an unspeakable calm at sunset every single day.
