About Me


Looking to head out and explore all of Australasia to see all things remote, wild and amazing.


I'm one of those travelers that still doesn't want to go home even though it's been a few years. People tend to think I'm a bit shy but, truthfully, I'm just introverted and tend to listen to others than speak about myself. So, yes, I rather climb a mountain than sit in a bar but I'm always up for a new challenge!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Primarily couch surf since I'm still in travel mode


Have surfed on numerous couches, beds, floors and back yards, and met many cool and wondrous people doing it.


Traveling off the well-worn beaten path

Hiking, scuba diving, camping...pretty much anything regarding the outdoors

Science and am one of those nerds who may point out something awesome that know one else understands

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Anything new that I haven't heard 1000 times repeated on my player over the last 3 years is great!

Books: Nonfiction mainly but who hasn't read Game of Thrones?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Played badminton with some monks in Vietnam

Played football with some monks in Myanmar

Actually, come to think of it, I've played football with locals in every country I've been to except Thailand

Worked, traveled, hitchhiked, couch surfed, fruit-picked, camped, hiked, drove, drove some more, all over Australia

Teach, Learn, Share

Helping others improving their English seems to be my most requested skill and don't mind being a walking dictionary

I've spent a lot of time in Australia and SE Asia and am happy to share advice

I need to bake more so remind me and I may attempt one of my family's recipes

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Belize, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, New Zealand, Thailand, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, Canada, New Zealand
