About Me


To create a timeless world full of curiosity, adventure and discovery.


I've spent many years travelling throughout Canada and the World, meeting wonderful and amazing couch surfing hosts and other fellow travellers. I now prefer to open my home to any of the world's travellers who are exploring the St. Catharines / Niagara area. I was born and raised here in St. Catharines and understand my area's historic, cultural and geographic roots very well. I certainly know of a lot of hidden gems here and would be happy to take any guests out to experience the unique wonders and pleasures of my hood :)

Who I am? I really have no idea.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in meeting people from all across Canada and the World - listening to their stories, sharing interesting conversations, being hospitable and welcoming to whomever is interested.

If your couchsurfing because you are low on funds, and simply need a place to rest for 2 - 3 days, you don't need to feel shy. You can be honest with me. You aren't considered a 'freeloader' in my eyes if there is an equal exchange of value between us (interest, involvement, curiosity, story-sharing, etc). There are great treasures and value in Everyone.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Replicated myself as personality structures in an infinite amount of parallel realities, accessing my self to any one of these personalities at any moment, each structure contributing to the infinite and unique points-of-view, manifesting my self instantaneously with each of my core preferences solidifying into matter (physical-state) or staying in a non-physical mental reality (dream-state).

The Inner Life is Wild.
