About Me

I'm currently traveling in Europe, but I'll be making my way back to the outback in October, where I've lived for nearly three years. I'm quite passionate about Alice Springs and outback Australia. I'll give it my best to make you want to add the outback to travels in Australia!

In life, I never want to run out of stories to tell and I never want to stop creating them. I love to have long winded conversations about life, the world, travel, adventures, etc.
More often then not those conversations are accompanied by a beverage of some sort, whether it be a nice coffee or a beer. I'm always up for either :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've made some cool friends and met some awesome folks through CS. It's truly wild, the people you meet and the things you learn.

Interests

I'm into a ton of things. I seem to be one of those people who has a lot of interests and few things I'm heavily into, but I don't see this as a bad thing. I'm in pursuit of a variety of knowledge and I'm generally always open to new interests.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm forever buying random books that look appealing at secondhand shops. I'm very fond of my bookshelf.
Some of my all time favorites are: Memoirs of a Geisha, 1984, Game of Thrones series, Cat's Cradle, Middlesex, and Bridge to Terabithia.

I love sci fi and comedy. My favorite TV show is Firefly. I've yet to watch something that fills me with delight like that show does.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I can't pick one thing...these three are my reigning favorites:

Felt a volcanic eruption while in a hot spring in Banos, Ecuador.

Pranced through crazy sea foam that was over my head on the beach in Mooloolaba, Queensland.

Ran into the sea naked mid-day on a deserted beach in rural Vietnam.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love quiz shows and trivia. I'm full of random knowledge, bits and bobs of info.

What I Can Share with Hosts

All the charm and wit you can handle. And a beer. I'll always offer you a beer.
