About Me

Recent transplant to the Kimberley from NZ, working as a flying doc in Broome.

Had been off the couch surfing wagon for a while, back onto it now and I like showing travellers around, having barbecues and watching the sunset on Cable Beach


Pragmatic, relaxed, quiet in my own way. At heart I am a bit of a rebel and enjoy being around people who are on the fringes.


Cooking, speaking spanish, dancing badly, reading good books, going to the gym, playing soccer on the beach, getting off the beaten track, tramping, taking photos, loitering in used book stores, downloaded a yoga app recently (yep)
