About Me


Otearai wa doko ni aru ka? Find a job in the UK!


I am friendly and approachable. I've couch-surfed before but never through a site like this, it's always been random friends of friends and people I've met on the road. I've also hosted people before, I love meeting travellers and hearing their perspectives on places I know well


I like people who are good at spelling and grammar.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to continue meeting random friendly people.


Stayed with a girl who I picked up here in NZ as a hitchhiker when I made it to her hometown in Europe. Have hosted lots and lots of germans (it's always germans) but has always been friends of friends.


Love languages, quiz nights, dancing, telling stories, reading & learning, Wellington

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - just saw 'The lives of others' about the Stasi in the GDR before the wall came down. Brilliant. and Requiem for a Dream and Before Sunset. All good.
Music - getting into The New Pornographers in a big way. All time favs: Bjork and Ryan Adams
Books - all time fav: Catch 22. Lately have read and enjoyed: The Book Thief, Requiem for a Dream, Mister Pip and on Chesil Beach. Am unemployed so lots of time for it..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Got rained on in the Sahara desert - go figure.

Sky diving the most intense rush I've ever experienced

Teach, Learn, Share

I know about the laughing building here in Welli, I've been here 4 years and have shown many a visitor around so I know what buttons to push. I know some story behind pretty much every small town between Welli & Auckland as well. It's all about the trivia
