About Me


Contribute to my community and build a strong family.


A small town Aussie who left to hit the big city and grew a passion for seeing and learning what is going on in the world first hand - normally with a beer in the other hand. After all of that, it's back to the country but this time there are beaches rather than paddocks, and waterfalls instead of dust..!

Keep up with world events, love sport and am always up for trying something new and exciting.

Recently moving to a new community, I hope to get involved in Coastcare and other community groups, mostly to get me into the outdoors, but also to help out people who might not have been awarded the same opportunities as my usual group of mates and I.


There are only so many hours in the day - the challenge is to do as much as you can for yourself and the rest of the world without burning yourself out. To get the most out of your time you'll need a strong body and a strong mind so make sure you exercise both and abuse them as little as possible.. In theory, anyway!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Have surfed, have hosted, not traveling as much any more but happy to help out and meet other local people in the scene.


Been a member of the site for a while now and have met some amazing people and done things that travelers can often only dream to find out about and get involved in.

I try to host whenever I can and give up a few secrets of the places that I live so that others can experience local wonders for themselves!


Who doesn't love parks, beaches, local food, local beers and amazing buildings?

Stepping off a plane somewhere completely new.

Get out and do it!

Music, Movies & Books

Sing-along to just about anything, don't give myself enough time to read outside of airports and planes, and don't mind a bit of sci-fi action - probably because it usually has something to do with space.

Love space, love the stars.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'd never taken the waterslide option to leave a pub until Jamaica..?

Sitting on a silent and still lake, numerous kms from shore, in dead silence on my own, watching dusk turn to night only a week after being battered on the same lake by waves while trying to steer my paddle clear of a group of dolphins who came for a curious look at the crazy man in the plastic boat.

Teach, Learn, Share

Anything i've got in my head i am willing to share so be careful what you wish for. Conspiracy theories? Grand business ideas? Cynicism of the system but faith in humanity? I've got all the answers.. one day I might even act on them!

Countries I've Visited

Barbados, Belgium, Cambodia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, United Kingdom, United States, Viet Nam

Countries I've Lived In
