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

Played football with some monks in Myanmar

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
