About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Successfuly transition from desk jockey to professional nomad.

ABOUT ME

Travelling is my main calling in life. I grew up in Sydney, Australia and have been lucky enough to study in Austin and backpack through Asia, South America, Africa and Europe. I'm currently working my way back to Sydney after a few years living in London. I'm a very easy going person who is always up for new experiences and has a strong interest in taking in new cultures. I love chatting about customs, history, music, sport, travel horror stories and anything else that comes up when travellers meet up in a new land.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted on a couple of occasions but for the most part my involvement in CS has been via community group catch ups and activities.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couch surfing has introduced me to some amazing people, some beautiful off the beaten trail places and some awesome activities I would have never been able to do with-out this incredible network of travellers!

Interests

I suppose travel and meeting new people is a given on CS. I love just about any sport you can name and love being in the outdoors whether it be cross training, jogging, hiking, cycling, surfing or any other activity that involves adrenalin and sunshine. Cultural pursuits have been a more recent interest of mine and I am catching up on classical literature. 2013 is going to be the year in which I will attempt to step into the music and languages arena, in the forms of the Banjo and Dutch respectively.
