About Me

I work full time as a freelance artist, illustrator, and publisher of short run risograph art books, comics, and zines. See some of my personal work at, and my press is at !!!

During May and June I'll be travelling to Chicago for an artist residency and the CAKE book fair.

I've lived between New Zealand and Australia most of my life, and in a few other countries too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you come to stay with me, I can show you around town a bit, take you to some favourite bars and cafes, perhaps go to an art or music event. I work freelance so my hours are quite flexible, if you are interested in illustration/art/printing I can show you around my studio :)

A Note... I'll only host you if I feel like we might get along. If you are just looking for a free place to "crash" then my place probably isn't the right place for you.

Previously, I've hosted people at my apartment in Wellington, NZ. Also hosted last time I was living in Melbourne. Couch-surfed in San Francisco and Memphis. Have had all good experiences so far and have met some of my most favourite people through this site!

Lately I've listened to Silver Jews, Cleaners from Venus, The Bats, Work by Rhianna. I like a lot of different music, also dancing to music is fun too!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can show you how to make self published books, teach you how to mend things, cook you some dinner, tell you about Australian/New Zealand things which are just like USA things but a little different. I can make some art for you and you can come visit me as a VIP at my art events heh.
