About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Planning awesome TEDx events in Trondheim!

ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Canada, originally from Calgary and later moving to Vancouver to study Mechanical and Electrical Engineering at UBC. Worked for a bit, then packed my bags and moved to Norway for a 2 year masters program in Industrial Ecology. I just graduated and am now working within the Industrial Ecology department at NTNU.

I'm super passionate about TED and I'm one of the core organizers of TEDxTrondheim. I have a million interests, which is partly why the TED concept resonates so deeply with me. I work with a very passionate team of volunteers to organize TEDx events in this city in order to spread great ideas and create a vibrant local community.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've gone to some couchsurfing events before, including an epic beach party in Berlin with hundreds of couchsurfers! I've couchsurfed around Germany and have hosted a few couchsurfers myself. I've also been to a few of the local meetups in Vancouver before. All in all, I love the couchsurfing concept!
