About Me


Live life like it's a holiday!


Moved from Brisbane, Australia to London 12 months ago and have been living life like I'm on vacation (apart from the shitty temp jobs and crap weather). I love that so many incredible places are only hours away. The closest country to fly to from Austrlia is full of bloody Kiwis!

Important things to know about me...well sort of important...

I try to enjoy every moment so get frustrated with negative people...although it doesn't stop me getting to know them and trying to throw a little positivety their way!

I love music, would go insane without it and even get anxious when my iPod battery is flat. One of my favourite pastimes involves a few glasses of scotch and an introduction to music I have never heard by anyone who wants to share it with me.

I often type "LOL" even if I didn't actually laugh out loud.

I consider myself honest and loyal and expect the same from the people with whom I surround myself.

I can't brush my teeth without foam dribbling down my chin.

I have a weird and unique sense of humour. Unfortunately, that means not everyone gets the joke.

I studied Screen Production and my future plan is to make music videos.

The more I drink, the more the little voice inside my head wants me to believe I have the moves of Michael Jackson and should put them on display (thankfully rarely in public places).

That same little voice once told me I should carry a friend on my back even though my legs could barely carry my own weight. This genius plan resulted in me grazing half my face off on the road.

I love Black Sambuca shots but can rarely remember the evening from the moment I have my second.

Papercuts really hurt.

I worked at McDonalds during University and met most of my current closest friends next to the nugget frier 10 years ago.

I have started a bunch of film and television scripts and will one day have the motivation to finish them!

I don't have a favourite colour.

Anything else, just ask.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm brand new to the CS Project and can't wait to be part of such a crazy, but incredible phenomenon..do do do do do


During my Uni years (and maybe more recently), I may have woken up once or twice...or maybe thrice..on a random couch, in a random house filled with random other CouchSurfers and realised...I have no bloody idea where I am but last night must have been bloody amazing! Does that count?
