About Me


To explore the spanish phenomenon..


Im from New Zealand.. I enjoy many sports and cultural events. I'm a humble, energetic person, like the adventure and seek adrenalin but also love art and painting, to explore architecture and the history of cities/places blows me away.
I'm currently exploring the world one country at a time. Ive been in Europe this time around for 18months and now on a mission to learn spanish.

I grew up in the mountains of Queenstown, exploring the outdoors and meeting people from all corners of the world, which only fueled my imagination to travel.

After gaining a degree and some experience I've set off again with no obligations and reason to stop exploring as yet.


To try everything and take advantage of as many opportunities that are presented at the time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Three weeks trekking through the himalya's in Nepal was mind blowing and for lack of a better way to describe the amazing adventure.

Cycling through the south of france, awestruck at the beauty of all the old castles and small quiant towns.

Stupidly diving of a city bridge at 5am in the middle of tokyo, with minus temperatures in the middle of winter wasnt the smartest thing.. but a very fond and funny memory
