Well I guess this is where I am supposed to describe myself, wow never had to do this before! In short I guess you could call me just an easy going fun guy.

Now for the longer version.
I have lived on Vancouver island for the past 9 years. I am married to a very lovely woman and am a father to three fantastic little girls which I love spending time with. I enjoy scuba diving and in particular underwater photography which has allowed me to see some amazing things, amazing places and met a lot of amazing people. I have a great time camping with my family and really like introducing my daughter to new things in life.
My wife Kelly and I have a suite that we rent out from time to time and it has been a great experience meeting people from all over the world. It is really neat learning how others make a living or how they do things in other parts of the world. Who would have known that letting strangers stay at your place would be so rewarding!
