About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fart around. Be nice to people.

ABOUT ME

Aw man this is always so hard.

I work in a small non-profit and I've done a lot of volunteering. I'm also in the theatre scene and help run a small improv comedy group in Perth, and perform a few times each month.

With some hestitation, I'd say I'm a people person, but my favourite things in the world are solitary activities - motorcycling, piano, and reading. I like hearing people's stories.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is dull, brief, and pointless.

My philosophy is to not want much money, be nice to people, and to be an active citizen of Earth. Being rebellious is important but sometimes being rebellious is being kind to people or picking up rubbish or whatever. Incidentally, please mention the word "rubbish" in your couchrequest to confirm you've read this. FANKS.

I also like reading philosophy. I'm a big fan of Albert Camus and I'd call myself an Absurdist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I couchsurfed a bunch across New Zealand and met some ace people, so I wanted to return the favour.

I'm living on my own and it feels like a total waste of space sometimes so I thought I'd give others the opportunity to share the space.

I should probably say I'm not much of an "active" couchsurfer/host. I study and work so showing you around town isn't that easy for me to do. That's not to say I'm not friendly, but you'll probably only bump in to me at home.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music & reading. I'm a big fan of Kurt Vonnegut, Bukowski, dark and low-life fiction. I like prog rock and other genres. I sing out of the shower because only underconfident people sing in the shower.

I don't read as much as I'd like.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking over 300km as part of a campaign for renewable energy was pretty cool.

I've worked with suicidal people and kids with severe autism, lots of stories there.

Probs other things.

Teach, Learn, Share

I play piano, happy to put on a show or teach anyone a few simple tunes. I also ride motorcycles, and anyone with the right gear is more than welcome to hop on and pillion for a bit.

I've worked in Psychology and with kids with special needs for a long, long time. I'm really comfortable around kids and like teaching them new things.

I've got an opinion on just about anything.
