About Me


To make lots of friends, have lots of fun, eat good vegetarian food, snowboard and visit as many countries as I can.


I'm addicted to snowboarding, cooking/eating/dinner parties, reading, writing, swimming.
I've discovered that one of the things that makes me happy is to make other people happy. Whether you are begging on the street, a passenger on a train, washing dishes in a restaurant or a millionaire in the French Alps. I am going to do my best to increase your happiness.
The country of Bhutan has it right: Gross National Happiness is more important than GNP.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love dinner parties and love cooking too. CS provides me with the opportunity to cook with/for local people, combining local ingredients to produce quality vegetarian meals. I learn, create and have fun. Stomachs around the world reap the benefits.
Hosting: Hosted surfers in Tasmania (grungy couch) and at the chalet in France(king size bed with ensuite.)


My couch has been surfed by hundreds of people. I've done some surfing in China, Iceland, Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia and now Portugal.



Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Australian hip hop, Damian Marley.
Movie: Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Book: The Time Traveller's Wife

Hitch-hiked around Iceland in six weeks.

Wrote a novel in Hungary.
Do they count as one thing?
