About Me

Friendly, pretty relaxed

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have spent a lot of time travelling and somehow have met people who have been so kind and accommodating to me along the way. Its nice to give back to others who are travelling and to help them enjoy their time here in NZ.


Obviously travelling and music, open to anything really. I also love football. Spending time at the beach.
