About Me

I'm Patrick!

I've lived in Hobart for most of my life. I've also lived in Dresden, Lund and Hong Kong.

I've been on CouchSurfing since January 2009. It's been an important part of my life ever since then, especially while I was living overseas.

I work at a consulting engineering firm and have numerous other hobbies - see below!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like personal experiences. I like getting to know surfers, hosts, and people I meet at events, especially those with whom I really click.
