About Me


Living it up in Sunny Qld, playing music with my band Carrie and the Cut Snakes.


I'm the kinda gal that is easy to get along with, i find it easy to talk to people, if i go to a party i will usually meet everyone at the party and make friends, even if just for the night, i love making connections!
I enjoy a good conversation, a singalong with friends or strangers, a cold beer and a night out dancing, amongst many other things.
I'm a musician, social worker and a grassroots community activist.
I love people, meeting them, getting to know them and becoming great friends!


My personal philosophy is to live authentically and honestly and to love and care for oneself and others!
I am a humanist and a feminist, i think it's important to treat people with kindness and respect. This is also how i wish to be treated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've mainly couch surfed in the USA.


I love playing music, writing songs, strumming my guitar and singing. I have a 5 piece alt country/folk/blues/rock band in Australia 'Carrie and the Cut Snakes'.
