About Me

Have been living and working in Christchurch for the last few years with my partner Natalia, we are planning on going on a big ol' trip to Europe at the end of 2017. I love any thing to do with most sports, relaxing doing nothing, travelling and a tasty pint of beer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have had 5 awesome couchsurfing experiences so far, staying in LA, Bozeman and Boston and having hosted a couple of cool dudes here in CHCH as well. I hope to have many more after a hiatus of a few years.

My experiences so far have taught me that staying with locals gives some of the most memorable, enjoyable and unexpected travel experiences and couchsurfing is a great way to do that.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music like the Strokes, Tame Impala, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Calle 13, the Roots, Bon Iver, the Beatles, Oasis, Supergrass, Fat Freddy's Drop,

Books include No Country for Old Men, The Beach and any good travel books (particularly Paul Theroux) or other non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One time I spent a month riding coast to coast on the Greyhound from Boston to Los Angeles, where one of the legs was 36 hours long..
