About Me


To learn things I don't know


Very much a Melbourne northern suburbs boy, I was born educated and gained an appreciation for a wide variety of food in the lovely suburb of Brunswick.

I'm always on the go, be it zipping around on my bike, walking in the bush or climbing up some rocks (although I'd like to be doing more of that).

I believe in equality, having a good time, the enviroment (yep, it really exists!), honesty, free sauce, bicycles, human nature (and not the band), fast internet, technology, sunsets, museli, and the number 23.

My sense of humour tends towards terrible dad jokes and making a fool of myself.


Have a good time all the time because you won't get nothing when you die!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting people when I can, checking out the odd meet, and doing out outdoorsy things with other couch surfers.


My first couchsurfing experience was in Bendigo, staying with a friendly local while going to a music festival. It was really interesting to try proper couchsurfing after growing up with my family having friends of friends (and sometimes friends of friends of friends :P) stay on a regular basis. Sometimes for a few days, in one case for 4 years. It was great to meet so many different people, and learn so many new things. Bendigo reminded me of everything I got out of it then and made me really keen to do more in the future.

Santacon and Urban Golf were great fun too, but maybe I just like dressing up in whacky costumes.

I spent four months this year surfing my way through Morocco, the Iberian Peninsular, Belgium, and the UK. I met amazing people along the way, and I'm really excited to be in a share house where I can host people. Just because I'm in my hometown I don't want to miss out on Couchsurfing :-).
