About Me


Build a house in New Zealand on top of a hill by the sea :)


I'm from Wellington, New Zealand but have been living between there and Europe for the last few years.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel a lot, and have more or less finished building my house, where I can host people sometimes :)


I've been to stay with a few people in France in separate occasions, and loved it! I've also met several people in Germany and France, always great experiences :)


I play music for a living and am interested in pretty much everything. I do a lot of woodworking in my spare time.. I studied guitar making in Canada, but now mostly make furniture. I like sailing, although I'm not very good.. but I did build a yacht. I love sport and being outdoors too.

Music, Movies, and Books

A broad range..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hard to say.. but perhaps climbing Mount Ngauruhoe in New Zealand.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people to play guitar... double bass... to sing... to build things... I'd like to improve speaking other languages, especially Italian, German and a bit of French too :)
