About Me

I love hanging out with friends, music festivals and dancing, crazy art galleries, coffee coffee coffee, loud beautiful music, long conversations about life, science, wikipedia and new experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've recently graduated University and thought it was about time I went on a solo adventure.

As with many travellers I'm always looking for the authentic experience within a country or city and I think there's no better way than to spend quality time with local people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm currently all about electronic music. Can't wait to see the Techno that Berlin has to offer!

Favourite film directors are Gaspar Noé and Christopher Nolan. I can talk forever about films.

My favourite book is an anthology; 'Labrynths' by Jorge Luis Borges. The book creates these amazing worlds which restructure the way you see the world. It's a truly special book and i recommend it to anyone.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Me and my partner saved for years to buy a Toyota Coaster bus which we have converted into a Motorhome. We've taken it all over the east coast and met all sorts of funky people with different lifestyles. One day we will take it all over Australia before settling down on a plot of land to build a house and have some goats.

I've made a few short films, one of which was officially selected for the St Kilda Film Festival and nominated for best Documentary and best VFX!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to learn about the music, dance, philosophy, history and art of any city I'm in. I also love learning about people and sharing crazy stories and journeys with each other.

I'm pretty good with cooking, auto-electrics, videography and film-making and happy to share my knowledge!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm always up for new and exciting activities but also perfectly content just relaxing somewhere with a cup of coffee.

I will happily help out in any way i can and am always extremely grateful to be hosted.

I enjoy conversations about almost anything especially when people are passionate about the topic!
