About Me


postpone the real world.


I am making a concerted effort to talk less about myself and listen more to what the world has to teach me. Following that theme, enough about me, tell me about you.


People worry too much. Try not to worry. Even if it hits the fan, things will work out okay.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now i'm working for the man, in rural Victoria. I no longer have my lovely decrepit crumbling flat in Melbourne. If by some cruel twist of fate you end up in Yarrawonga, I can take you out for a beer, or maybe some homebrew.


Mucho experienco.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

hiking the tiger leaping gorge trail in china, with the endorphins from carrying my heavy pack up the 28 switchbacks and the suns rays caught in the morning mist as they peek over the mountain crests. I've never been happier. Too bad you can't capture it in a photo - the suns warmth on your face and the wind blowing in your hair, the weight of the pack on your back, and just the joy of walking.
