About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hey everybody :) I'm on this site fairly randomly.

ABOUT ME

I was born in New Zealand, spent my childhood in Sydney, Australia and then from my teens up I've been here in New York.

PHILOSOPHY

I just like to do fun stuff and not cause problems :]

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to make new friends where I'm travelling. I can speak and help teach English, or I can speak Spanish. I'm looking to learn more Russian.

Interests

I like seeing live music. We have good venues here in New York, I would like to find some great music spots elsewhere in the world.
I like going to markets with lots of cheap, old crap.
For a city kid I'm fairly outdoorsy, I like to get out in the country and rode horses growing up.
I'll go to museums but I can't stand trying to see every museum in the city, in one day, it's tiring and overwhelming.
I LOVE weird crap like medical and science museums, natural oddities and "world's biggest" sites.

Music, Movies & Books

I like all music. Some of my favouite things here are the Puerto Rican bomba shows and the little punk rock shows in squats or peoples basements. those are fun. not really part of the whole scene though. Like the jazz spots too when money allows.
Books...I like Julio Cortazar and Greek myths.
Films...errrm: A Certain Kind of Death, A Deriva, Buffalo 66, The Fall..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seeing the stars from up on Mt.Rupehu volcano in New Zealand was pretty nice.
Sneaking onto a rooftop in Mexico City after a storm to catch a view of the volcanoes was also nice.
Actually sneaking onto a rooftop in Brighton Beach to see all the way from Long Island to New Jersey was ALSO nice.
I'm seeing a theme here...I'm not a chronic rooftop sneaker/volcano voyeur I swear..

Teach, Learn, Share

Things I know that I can pass on...hmm: I can dance: salsa, bachata, merengue and cumbia if you want to learn. I can help with your English and am well versed in Australian, and New York slang. Could teach you to make wire bikes or bind books.

Countries I've Visited

Mexico, Russian Federation, Ukraine

Countries I've Lived In

Australia, New Zealand, United States
