About Me


Save money, study and move to a new place and start a new adventure.


"Jay is Fun, crazy, great company, the energy in the room, experimental..."

I have really changed as a person since I began travelling in 2011. I have lived in Canada and the UK, travelled around the USA, South America and parts of Europe and obviously barely scratched the surface.

There have been so many amazing experiences and people along the way. After 3 years I now live back in Melbourne with my girlfriend which I met in London while living there (see her CS profile: Mandi Ackman)

I am very easy going and get along with most people. Absolutely love couchsurfing after the few awesome opportunities I had. It is now my turn to pay it back and Host surfers who want to enjoy Melbourne.


Enjoy and take on as many new experiences as possible!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I only recently found out about this community, so my current hope is to be able to surf for a while around the world and when settled in turn pay it forward!


I have surfed with a few unique and wonderful people so far. I have enjoyed all my experiences in various locations around the world. As soon as I am able to host myself, I will :)


I enjoy music, traveling, meeting new and interesting people, new experiences, new cuisines, cultures, languages (would love to learn French, Japanese and Spanish), drinking, having a good laugh and hanging with friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm in to all types of music. Love movies, I watch all kinds but my favorites are probably Action, Comedy and Romance haha
