About Me

Hi! I'm a kiwi who has been living in Sydney for the last 5 years. I have spent the last few years focusing on work but am very excited to be putting that aside for now to travel through Europe and Central America with my girlfriend. I am very easy going and love to meet people, go to gigs, drink wine, drink coffee, go camping, reading, hang with my friends, ride my motorbike, snowboard, eat! and watch movies. I love to learn from people who know more about a topic than me, I believe that everyone has something to teach you, I also love just joking around and having a laugh (I do that a lot).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Whenever I have traveled and met or known locals it has always been a far greater experience, to be given the inside word on a place is so valuable. Staying in a hotel and being a traditional 'tourist' is not appealing in the slightest. I know the kind of people who are able and do open up their homes to travellers are the kind of people I would like talk to and crash with.


I love camping, being in the outdoors and going on adventures. I am a big music dork and spend a lot of time going to gigs and finding new music, my taste is wide and varied. I am constantly learning and reading about things which interest me, social science especially, but also nature, physics, sports, food/nutrition etc.
