About Me


To save the world. And keep travelling, delve into the unknown and unexplored caves , keep working at lost animal homes, travel to more islands with coconut trees and eat more coconut ice cream.


Fascination for ....good music, pillow fighting and ukulele playing. I am someone who prefers to talk about ideas rather than other people.
I joined couchsurfing a few years ago while travelling through Latin America but never ended up using it to surf couches at the time. But this time while travelling I think it would be awesome to begin to make use out of such an interesting website. If you think we would make a good couchsurfing team hit me up.

My current travelling adventure has now been going on for 9 months, through South East Asia, and also Japan, Taiwan and The Philippines, Sri Lanka, India and Nepal. Although I believe that couchsurfing is a good way to budget I believe that it is not only about the accommodation but also the people you meet. I look forward to meeting other couchsurfers and sharing travelling stories and ambitions.

I also have my own apartment that I own in my home town of Melbourne, Australia. It's located in the Brunswick area, a central location with travellers so reciprocation may be possible sometime in the future.


Travel with no concrete plans in mind, pack light, travel far, or some cliche BS like that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By being a considerate house guest and keeping everything clean and tidy and the way it was...and also by dealing out good vibes. And to eventually host travellers in my apartment.


Music, guitar, travelling and getting a kick out of certain situations. Science.....I studied and work within the field of science, mainly environmental science and water chemistry. I also read a lot, I adore books recently finished writing a novel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While in Belize a local wealthy man decided to invite a group of girls I was travelling with and myself, to a little island he owned in the Cayes.
He took us out on his luxurious boat as the sun was going down.
We stayed on the island all night, we drank, we sang, we partied, rolled in the sand, we attached live crabs to our nipples, we drank, we swam, we danced.
The wealthy local man took us back to our hostel as the sun was coming up.
