Travel is an important part of my life. I have lived in five continents – Africa, Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania (Australia).
Prior to living in London, I lived in Brisbane, Australia which boasts a beautiful tropical climate.
I’m from Calgary, Canada, home of the Calgary Stampede – a festival where cowboys risk their lives to ride angry bulls – the 1988 winter Olympic Games and the 1989 Stanley Cup Champions (ice hockey).
I have skydived in Australia, gone scuba diving in Jamaica, seen lions roam the plains of Africa, kissed the love of my life under the Eiffel Tower, drank snake’s blood in Vietnam, snowshoed the top of the Rocky Mountains at -25 degrees, explored Disney Land and Disney World and rode camels in Morocco. All of these experiences have shaped my life and helped me better understand the world we live in.
As cliche as it may be, this is a moment Ez and I will forever cherish.

Travelling is important for many reasons. It is the best way to learn about different cultures while getting to experience something new every day. Nothing comes easy when you travel to a foreign place, which makes everything you accomplish all the more rewarding.
I was born in Canada but, more accurately, am a citizen of the world and will continue to challenge myself each and day. Travelling also gives me the chance to build relationships and meet people with very different backgrounds. It is a good way to find out more about yourself, too. You learn to adapt under difficult circumstances.
Plus, I have friends in many different places around the world so I have free places to sleep.
Now I am in Korea, a land I have never before explored.
Living in Korea presents its own set of challenges but I am eager and prepared to learn as much as I possibly can. I hope you will help me to learn more about your charming culture, difficult language and beautiful country.
If you can’t tell by the photo, Korean students absolutely love the peace sign. Can you feel the harmony?
Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to travel the world. You’ll learn more than you ever thought possible. And maybe, just maybe you’ll never stop travelling and end up like me, a citizen of the world.
