About Me


A good life for all is a good life for me


Crikey! I'm a curious individual, perhaps a little naive but looking for new experiences and hoping to find my calling in life. I'm a nerd, and proud of it.


Exploring one's-self and the universe, and leaving the world better than when I found it.
"It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


"I'm new here... can you show me 'round?" - Gil Scott Heron


I've met some cool couch surfers and I hope that continues :)


-Personal and organisational effectiveness
-Seeing how long I can make my 2001 laptop remain functional...

Music, Movies, and Books

Enjoy almost any music but generally my preferred style is electro/synth, read relaxing and melodic (eg Little Dragon, KarlmarxProject, Kode9, James Blake) :) That, and anything I can rock out on my ukulele!
I like books and movies that are funny and or about life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My first glimpse of the planet Saturn in a telescope - I remember thinking, wow, it's not just something in a text book, it was as if I could almost touch it!

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess I'm on this site to learn as much as anything, but I'm always willing to share my knowledge of:
-New Zealand
-English & proof-reading
-Life specifically and in general...
