I'm an easy-going Canadian who loves to cook, travel, and listen to music. (Favourite music includes indie rock, 80s disco, funk & boogie, soul from all eras, and Detroit techno.)
I work in my family's wine business in British Columbia, and not surprisingly love eating out and going wine tasting. I have visited many wine regions around the world including Washington State, Napa, Sonoma, the Barossa Valley, Yarra Valley, Clare Valley, and Margaret River, although my vacations are not limited to wine regions, as I also love art, architecture, and urban culture. My recent trips to San Francisco (to visit friends), New York City (to go to the Kraftwerk show at the MOMA), and Berlin (to visit friends and go support a friend's first tour in Germany) were absolute highlights of the past year.
Finally, as much as I would love to throw on a back-pack and travel for months on end, my work schedule just doesn't allow for it anymore (I spent significant time in my youth in Asia, Australasia, and Europe doing just that). As a result, my time away is now spent mostly 'vacationing' as opposed to 'travelling'.
In any case, I'm overall quite neat, respectful, and enjoy meeting new people and discovering new places! I am open to spending time with hosts to get the local scoop, but I also enjoy discovering new places on my own (or with friends at my destination.)
All the Best!
