About Me


To broaden my horizons and meet cool and interesting people


Hey there, I'm a New Zealander who is a big rookie at travelling. I have headed to London by myself to work a bit then travel and see whats going on. I am a primary school teacher who likes trying all sorts of new things out. I especially like Kayaking but am still a rookie at this. If anyone wants to help me out there I'd be totally stoked. (Update) not such a rookie anymore.
UPDATE: I have travelled and am no longer a rookie :)


Take things as they come, try not to get too stressed out and treat everyone you meet awesomely, it'll come back to you eventually.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Still a rookie, but I guess at this stage I'm a surfer.


Attended a few events and had a great time. Looking to host people now I have my own place.


Rugby, cricket, NHL, NFL, sports in general. Kayaking, cycling, hunting, skydiving (done once but loved it) Cooking and having a good time.

Music, Movies, and Books

All the bourne films, music ranges from reggae like katchafire, to rock with foo fighters and pearl jam.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving for sure, it gives you the most natural high in the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook a bit :S
