About Me


Travel to Europe to visit festivals, places, go to events, and meet people!


I live in Wellington, New Zealand and work as a musician and festival organiser (literary and music).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel a lot, and have built a house in Wellington, New Zealand, 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 work on festivals. I studied jazz double bass at a music school in New Zealand, and guitar making in Canada. I love building things..

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 :)

What I Can Share with Hosts
