About Me


Draw and paint a lot. Look at animals and plants. Make friends. Read books. Adventure.


I work full time as a freelance artist, illustrator, and publisher of short run risograph art books, comics, and zines.

Have kind of recently moved back to Melbourne after 4 years away, travelling and living in New Zealand.

Artist books/zines/comics.
Films (imdb watched/want to watch list here)
Science fiction.
Science fact.
Making useful objects.


Make some drawings. Print some things. Eat some food. Look up facts about frogs. Do some other things.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


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.


Hosted 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!


Art, making stuff, music, reading, nature, eating, internet time.
