About Me


Doing something crazy significant as often as possible


I am a very easy going person who gets on with almost all types of people. Kiwis are relaxed people and we have an awesome accent!! When im travelling i like to see as much of the local cultures as possible and do something crazy there. A great way to start is to meet some of the other people living and travelling in a place. I do a lot of outdoor sports, and work as a ski patroller and a sea kayak guide when im not travelling.


I take life as it comes and love new experience/challenges. Dont hold a grudge...let it go

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Ive done a lot of surfing and a bit of hosting the only time i had a chance. I try to meet other travellers in places so people don't go lonely. I try to inspire people around the world of possibilities they never knew existed.


I couch surfed across 20 countrys in Europe, ofen just going to couch surfing party's and meeting people just to hang out and explore city's. I met my girlfriend in Istanbul at a couch surfing party. Ive couch surfed in my home country in New Zealand, in Hawaii, Hosted in Alaska and surfed in Panama. Oneday i would like the chance to host more when i have a place to do so.
