To live my dreams now instead of regretting that I never tried
Hello everybody. Right now I am currently living in my car as I travel across my lovely yet vast homeland of Canada. I grew up on the West Coast and had never been further than Calgary until now. I'm adventurous, easy-going, and like to make people laugh. I've travelled a lot in my life, both to popular destinations as well as random isolated places that most would consider "nowhere". But if you really want to get to know me, I would recommend in person, where I'd be glad to regail you with nemerous energetic stories about my adventures.
Some random facts about me:
-I humbly believe that I have perfected the art of the road trip
-My best move is the savage slide kick
-I do a lot of improvised theatre, so I am very spontaneous
-The Narwhal is my favorite animal
I could probably write a book on my personal philosophies, but most of them are derived from the belief that we are the creators of our own destinies, although it's never an easy or straightforward path.

Music, Movies, and Books
I listen to almost any kind of music, but some of my favorites are: Neil Young, Ben Harper, The Beatles, CCR, Wintersleep, Modest Mouse, Neil Young, RjD2, Thievery Corporation, Xavier Rudd, Hawksley Workman, and Beast.
I like listening to new music from different countries, and am more than willing to show you a bunch of good Canadian music, as most of the stuff that gets marketed to other countries is terrible.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Driving to every city in British Columbia and exploring the endless parks, forests, mountains, islands, rivers and beaches.
Teach, Learn, Share
As I said above, I would love to share and spread some good Canadian music around the world.
If you have any questions about British Columbia, I've explored it very thoroughly and am very passionate about it, so I'd be glad to teach you all about it.
I am very interested in the arts and would like to discover the different ways that people express their creativity throughout the world.
