About Me


To live life!


Easy going Australian who is fortunate enough to be able to make a living online and hence can live where I choose. At the moment am enjoying the delights of Quito, and would love to catch up with people to show me around and help with my Spanish.


May sound corny, but "do unto others..." is one of my major beliefs. I'm also a believer in karma of some sorts, or at least that doing good will come back to reward you in some way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm actually a CouchSurfing virgin, so please treat me gently on your first visit (or mine to you). I have met many CouchSurfers through social events so know that the majority of the community are great!


I love getting involved in most things, be it social, events, sports and other physical activities. Love travelling (obviously), try to go diving at least once a year, and would really like to get myself lost in the Amazon for a few weeks one day...

Too many to mention here, I have a wide range of tastes...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visiting the gorillas in Rwanda, the original "Gorillas in the mist" from the movie. And having one of them sit down next to me at one stage, and offer me the plant they were eating... mindblowingly amazing experience!
