About Me


Travel Sri Lanka


After 9 months back working in Australia I'm off again, this time 2 months i Sri Lanka Dec-Feb2015

I am a writer/director that lives 8 km from Melbourne. I spend my days writing screenplays or chasing directing jobs.




Some week nights I teach Film Making/Screen Acting/Writing and rock climbing (yep it can be taught). I like to spend my weekends either in town socialising over drinks with friends, watching the rugby or cricket or going away rock climbing, camping and hiking.

I love watching films (my goal is to see one from every country in the world) and watch a lot when I am writing screenplays but when I finish one I get restless to travel.want to travel.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to meet people to socialise, I've lived inner city for 7 years so know the lay of the land realy well. Can give heaps of info on outdoor pursuits from hikes near Melbourne and all over Victoria as well as adventure sports info like rock climbing. Unfortunatly due to living in a sharehouse I can't have people surf the couch at the moment but I hope to rectify that soon.
