About Me


I am a travelling performer from Melbourne, Australia (aka 'Guru Dudu'). I have a youthful, creative spirit with a grounded approach to life. I have a postive disposition and a thoughtful, deeper side that reflects a lot on personal growth and social/environmental issues.

I'm one of those Gemini's who settle into new places quickly, and can intuit when is a good time to engage or not. I'm quite independent. I love a good chat, but not needy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm travelling the world a lot recently with my character Guru Dudu (www.gurududu.org) who runs "Silent Disco Walking Tours" and "Happy Yoga" - a parody of Yoga for festivals and Corporates. Most of my work is about bringing people together in fun, interactive, quirky ways. As I'm travelling so much it's great to meet locals and have a more embedded experience of a place and feel a sense of authentic connectedness.
