to gather inspiration from every corner of this beautiful planet of ours then put it into music :) plus make amazing new friends along the way.
born in byron bay australia, I inherently love to play music (Guitar mainly), I skate board, surf and love most sports, especially extreme sports!!! or anything inolving a board ie wake booarding or snowboarding, I successfully ran a promotions and marketing company at a young age in Autralia so I'm quite out going and love people, I just about get along with anyone as I feel most people have something that I can learn about or from, people I know discribe me as very laid back but focused, easy to get along with but most of all people discribe me as extremely possitive which perhaps comes from my passion for life and no excuse mentality, a quote I strongly believe in is that "life is 10% chance and 90% how you react to those chances!!" also that everything happens for a reason, thus why I'm aiming to travel the world with near no money, long story behind why and I'm sure you'll find out if we get the chance to meet but this was exactly the life changing challange that I was looking for, I plan to see how long and far I can go abroad surviving off my own will, skill, character inspiration and inovation. I can't wait to meet people who will help aid me on this mission and exchange pleasantries and laughs :) viva la vida loco!!!!
Treat people how you wish to be treated.
Life is all about energy, you get back the same energy that you put out.
Tough times never last but tough people do.
If you want something, go get it and don't make excuses until it's done.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to couch surfing but I love the idea and look forward to meeting people and passing on new learnings and experiances, I also look forward to hosting when I eventually return to australia.
although I'm new to this site, I traveled the 1st 4 months of central and a part of south america with my sister megan who has a profile and we stayed with a champion called Nate Bunger in cali colombia, apart from that the only couches I've surfed is that of friends or friends of friends aside from the odd disoriantated morning after a MASSIVE night out :) lol
food, people, music, guitar, extreme sports, the beach, travel, languages, dancing and partying, LIFE!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've seen more of Australia than probably 99.9% of australians, lived on the great barrier reef, the wild cape york, the sunshine coast, the south east coast, the great ocean road, the simpson desert, ayers rock, kings canion, the great dividing range, the great Australian bite, alice springs, madaranca springs, the hand river, mitchel river, melbourne, sydney, brisbane, gold coast, surfers paridise, cairnes, townsville, adelaide, perth, darwin, hobart, you name it, if it's in australia chances are I've been there.Mainly because I love to travel, but partly because my dad was a musician, and partly because I was running my own marketing company which involved a fair bit of travel with up to 29 people working for me at its peak and earing over $120,000 per year, more than most doctors twice my age.seen almost all of central America.I lived with an aboriginal community of the land in outback australia for 6 months at the age of 7. I built the 1st room of my dads house in spain all by myself under his intructions as he had a bad back at the time.I kinda feel like I'm boasting but guess these are things I'm pretty proud of or feel greatful to have experianced.
