About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Operation Renegade Kiwi

ABOUT ME

"Are you a funny person?", asks CS "Serious, contemplative, wacky, adventurous, whimsical?"

Umm, yes? I mean, all of them. I mean, I think so? (Cue identity crisis.)

"Having difficulty deciding what to write?", it continues, taunting now.

In conclusion: it is possible to deduce this information from the rest of my profile.

PHILOSOPHY

Vissi d'arte, vissi d'amore...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have surfed and hosted....was on hospitality club briefly before CS.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have thus far "participated" as above. And that's my experience. It's been rad. The end.

Interests

Theatre, fine arts, performing arts, film, music, animation, dance, opera, poetry, puppetry, literature, psychoanalysis. And, uh, travelling...

Music, Movies & Books

Three favourite films that come to mind: Celine and Julie Vont en Bateau, Jan Svankmajer's Alice, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

I LOVE MUSIC. Fave genres include: opera, baroque, fado, blues, folk. I love singing.

I like poetry, plays, novels, graphic novels, short stories...e.g. Terry Castle, Chris Kraus, Edward Albee, Italo Calvino, Samuel Beckett, Brenda Shaughnessey, Adrienne Rich, Kaja Silverman...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Erm, I was an Orc. Well, an extra in "Lord of the Rings" (so was half of Wellington, but shhh..) Amaaaazing, right?!

Teach, Learn, Share

I really want to find a Brazilian Portuguese intercambio buddy or anyone wanting to swap Korean for English. They would have to be pretty patient!

I can teach basic piano, guitar, voice...very basic ukulele and harmonica. I have been an English teacher so I would like to think I could teach English but that's a moot point.

Countries I've Visited

Brazil, China, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Australia, Korea, Republic of, New Zealand, United Kingdom
