About Me


My current mission is to meet as many interesting people from as many different walks of life as I can.


I recently relocated to China for work and exploration. Looking forward to up and coming adventures in and around China!!


Get lost, get found and have a laugh along the way!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sadly I only discovered CS in January 2010, participating as a good honest surfer. I am willing to share, compare and take an active part in keeping couch surfing alive and in its true and intended form. I look forward to giving back by hosting some people and sharing ideas and experiences.


I first experienced the wonderful world of couch surfing in India and had a blast meeting new people and cultures. I have continued traveling with couch surfing around the globe and have met some amazing people, seen some beautiful sights, cultures and customs. I look forward to continuing my travels using couch surfing as both a surfer and a host.
I have made some life long friendships through CSing and just think it is such a useful tool for new and exciting adventures!


Traveling is top on my list. I am up for all kinds of adventure, laughs and trying new things. I love meeting fellow travelers and sharing stories and adventures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love all music, off beat movies and any book that can keep me reading till the end.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This world has pockets full of wonderful things to experience. I have been fortunate enough to have touched a few... from bungee jumping off a 60m bridge at the border of Tebit, hitch hiking through the UK, India and Aussie- (one highlight being catching a ride with a 4 trailer road train through the Nallibor for 3 days straight)celebrating Holi festival in Jaipor, doing a Sheep show in Hiroshima for 8months in Japanese, spending a night in a cave in Little Petra, star gazing in deserts, hot air ballooning above the Fairy chimineys in Capidocia, scootering around Hampi. The grand highlight to date is meeting the most open minded, inspiring souls who share so much love and compashion for others....this world has so much to offer, I just hope I have enough time to see it all!!
