About Me


Eat my way around the world!


After living in London for two years, I returned home to Adelaide in Australia for a year, saved up some money, and now I'm off travelling again! Heading through New Zealand, Canada, New York, Iceland, Europe, India and Thailand. I think. I don't really have too many concrete travel plans, just going with the flow I guess.
I really just enjoying eating nice food and being in green places.


I try to live as best I can. I'm quite straightforward, logical and rational, I believe in the here and now. I like to keep fit, healthy and strong.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed, hosted and just met up with people for food and such all over the place. I've made quite a few good friends from this little amble!


Cooking, bicycles, yoga, GOOD coffee, abandoned places, environmentalism, crossfit, gin, consuming various flavours of tea, gardening, eating out, drinking in quiet pubs, warehouses, things that are old, green places.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm not much for movies to be quite honest, but give me a documentary anytime!

I love to read, mainly non-fiction, but hey, a good story can sucker me in for sure.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The crazy 6 weeks each February and March working at The Garden Of Unearthly Delights at Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Running around in Victoria Park all night long after my first snowfall in London.
Breaking into and climbing an abandoned spy tower in Berlin.
Swimming in the frozen Baltic Sea in Finland in -16 degrees!
Making a short film in the space of 48 hours in Wellington.
Hiking to Eagle Bluffs in Vancouver, what a view!

Teach, Learn, Share

The thing I do best is cook! I would love to meet up with people who are also passionate about food and show them a thing or two as well as pick up a few tips. I love pot luck dinners, big cook ups and picnics.

Share with me anything you wish to teach!
