About Me

Hey everyone!

I'm a 27 year old full-time student athlete studying Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Wollongong.

I'm a really active, positive, progressive and driven person and I love to surround myself with like-minded people who love and enjoy life as much as I do.

I'm a bit of a thrill seeker who loves to hike, chase waterfalls, explore and I want to experience everything that this amazing planet has to offer us. I'm always out in nature when I am not training, working or studying. I'm really passionate about nutrition, health and fitness , and love immersing myself in nature whenever I have the chance.

I also love to cook healthy and delicious meals, I have my own Health food business where I make Peanut Butter. I love to learn, and meet people from all different walks of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've spent a lot of time traveling the world, and couch surfing gave me access to some of the most amazing experiences I've had so far in life. I love the idea of cultural exchange, and traveling like locals do.

Because of that, I'm always happy to show people my area; taking them hiking and exploring all of the untouched spots in the region. Travel is all about your company, not just the destination, so I love meeting exciting, interesting, and happy people.


I've couch surfed with so many people all over the globe, and had some absolutely unreal experiences. One of the highlights would definitely be camping in Yosemite National Park in California for a week, and spending summer afternoons driving down to Saint Sebastian from Bordeaux to picnic until sunset.


I love to hike, explore, chase waterfalls, and spend most of my spare time exercising, swimming or climbing mountains.

I'm a competitive track sprinter, who loves the outdoors, learning, and meeting people from all different walks of life. I'm profoundly curious and a very positive person and am always looking for an adventure.
