About Me


To see the forest for the trees


I've been living in Melbourne for about 3 years now (edit: update: have been fruitpicking and travelling the coast for the past 8 months) and the city still amazes me. The deeper I scratch beneath the surface, the more culture and life I find. There is always something to do and that something is always random and amazing. The space invader mosaics that have invaded the city, the glowing transformation point just off Flinders Lane, the random bridge playing tribal music from around the world, the underground art movement that has taken the walls of the city, tram restaurants serving microwave dishes, sunken libraries and open air rooftop cinemas.

I know what feels good and how to create an atmosphere for anything I need. I love everything that is so full of life and raw energy kept pure and buzz'n with a vibe that can never die, we only die to it, until it's rediscovered. I love mini adventures. Life is the biggest adventure.

I believe that everyone is equal and we're are all on this planet and in it together. I love it when I see sparks in peoples eyes and mysterious smiles in the corner of their mouths.

I was born in Spring. I love everything about Spring. I often wonder what a person would be like if they were the embodiment of Spring itself and the very definition of the season and would they smile a lot? I love the snow in winter. I love rainy days and watching drops fall from the sky as they catch a spark from the big star in the sky.

I have piercings and ink. I am a dreamer. I am galactic. I am geekcore. I love art.. it's my heart and my passion. I love reading. I am a consumer of gourmet pizza. I am abrasive poetry. My feet are grounded. My head is in the clouds. I am tranquil. I am majestic. I am a foreign film on mute watched upside down whilst listening to alternative radio stations. I am a consumer of ice cream with ice magic. I am pen and paper. I am a lover of commercials that have thousands of rubber balls bouncing down a street to the sound of folk music. I am quality over quantity. I am a friend first.


I like everything to be simple and cruisy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I consider myself a backpacker.


Many! Probably the zaniest moment would have been put on an upside down coffee table above 2 flights of stairs and pushed. Mind you, it was all in the name of science (or so I was told). The strange people I have put my care in the hands of..


Too many to mention on here! Although I do have an awesome adultswim dvd collection that goes travelling with me :) pleaseeee google adultswim if you dont know what it is.. just realised people might get the wrong idea :|
