I am originally from Canada, but now live in Honolulu, Hawaii. I love to travel, and it was on one of my many adventures that I realized it was time for me to trade in my boots and tuque (Canadian for "beanie") for sunglasses and slippers (Hawaiian for flip flops). Oddly enough, I don't make it to the beach nearly as much as I should, but I do most of my traveling by bike or foot, which ensures that I get my daily dose of Hawaiian sunshine. I am an artist, a recreational gardener and cook, and a home owner. As a host, I take great pride in providing a clean, comfortable, and stylish space for my guests to enjoy. As a house guest, I consciously treat my accommodations with as much care as I would my own home.
