About Me


to live my life as best i can. travel the world, meet the people of it and basically enjoy myself. not too complicated really.


hmmmmm.......well, i consider myself to be a pretty down to earth kind of guy. of course i love to travel and meet new people, experience their cultures and broaden my knowledge of this amazing world we live in. there is so much to learn and gain from travelling, and i think it is something everyone should experience. you gain so much perspective from travelling to different parts of the globe. it has certainly helped open my eyes to just how lucky we all are.
my hobbies and interests include, fire twirling, music, festivals, sports, keeping fit, hanging out with my friends, reading, drawing and anything else that makes me happy.
im about to set off on my next trip. i will be travelling around south america for a good part of 12 months. so i thought couch surfing was a great way to meet people and get a true feeling of the real people and places. there is no better way to experience a place. i also hope that i can do the same for someone else in the future. i really enjoy showing people where im from. i find it very rewarding.


live life to the fullest. and stand up for what you believe in. "he who stands for nothing, will fall for anything" martin luther king.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i would love to meet up with fellow travellers here in cairns and share what i know of this part of australia. local bars, swimming holes and activities.


i have surfed in many countries around the world and have met some amazing people along the way. cant speak highly enough of this site.


travelling and meeting new people, scuba diving, fire twirling, rugby league, basketball, and sports in general. going out to dinner, enjoying good wine, partying and dancing the night away.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
