About Me


Punching holes in the grass to help it grow.


Have just moved to Melbourne and am trying to get settled before returning to Uni to continue studying in 2015.

I like to work on various small musical projects, anything new/exciting/interesting/mind expanding.

Active comes to mind to describe things right now.

Changes from day to day.


I'm trying to keep this simple at the moment... live, be happy, pry your mind outside of the social streams, accommodate the happiness of others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Regularly head to meetups and things, have been surfing around Europe as well.


A lot of meetups, good for getting to know some locals in a new city =) and a handful of surfing experiences.

All experiences have been great so far, so many that developed into good friendships.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Have stayed alive for 26 years!

This is something I'd love to talk to people about in person, sharing stories is best done face to face =)

Teach, Learn, Share

- Tomato sauce goes in the fridge after you've opened it (just shake it a bit after you go to use it or else it'll be separated [amended: make sure the lid is on properly before shaking])

- You can never really understand a person or what their world is, so don't ever think you really -know- why they did what they did.

Learn: Everything! Bring all your brain electronics to zi table.
