About Me


live, love and learn


I am a wandering wonderer.
Currently based in Melbourne as I am about to embark on a journey making shoes! Cobbler aye? I love adventures, musical and creative jams and generally cobbling things together from found objects.
I live to learn and learn to live along the way.


I live a simple life, I prefer not to have too many unnecessary things which I do not need. I am not a very existential person, simple beautiful things in life make me smile.. like a blooming flower or random acts of kindness.
Also.. Take the stairs! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing, hosting, potlucks, spontaneous gatherings and sporadic adventures!


Couchsurfed through Europe and met lots of wonderful, free spirited open minded and open hearted people.


Ecological sustainability, gardening, drinking herbal tea, herbalism, spiritual growth, Yoga, Vegetarianism, Traveling, juggling, gymnastics, music, playing the flute, singing, learning music, potlucks, eating wild-berries, frolicking in the wilderness, shouting at the sky in city streets at night, star gazing, Freeganism, Dumpster diving (skipping), the moon, picking my nose, queer bebs. shmoosing, , dancing, deconstructing the patriarchy, forests, banners, love, weird sounds, rradical self expression, climbing, caving, pondering, being vague-an (vaguely vegan), consent, opening your mind, colours, kinesthesia, mindfulness, Buddhism, laughing, laughing and frolicking until your abs hurt and your weekly excercise is done.
Meeting like minded people, meeting people who challenge my view of the world (who is to say my views/understanding of the world is correct.. who decides the reality which is real anyway!!)
