About Me


40 countries before I'm 40


Hey guys!! I'm a loud, outgoing, smiley 20 year old from Australia who is currently living in NYC! I love travelling (obviously..) and studying a journalism degree at the moment, and I absolutely love meeting new people. I feel like every person has an interesting story to share, and I love hearing them! So hit me up for a coffee or a drink, I'd love to chat!!


A day without a smile is a lost day!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I first went to the US when I was 18, I didn't know anyone, but CS saved me from a life of social exile! I've met some really great people on CS, friendships that I know will last for a long time! I can meet up with tourists & show them around, or just grab a drink with locals and chill together!


I've met some really great people, and have also surfed a few couches! I'm hoping to travel more around the US/Europe/ the rest of the world this year so hopefully I can up that number! :)


Being outside, walking, swimming, reading, cooking, exploring new places, traveling anywhere and everywhere, learning new things, learning new languages.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite movie is Forgetting Sarah Marshall :) haha its so funny. Books- I love anything by Jodi Picoult, but I really read anything and everything I can get my hands on. I LOVE HARRY POTTER! That does NOT make me a nerd though!!
Music- No idea, I literally like every kind of music... except death metal. (Though... why do we always associate Satan with death metal? For all we know he could love smooth jazz. Anyway...)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Trekked in the Himalayas, and did community service in India. Also I went on exchange to Italy, it was amazing! Moving to a new country when I was 18 and knowing no one was absolutely scary but amazing, and I feel like it made me such a better person (blah blah that sounds so fake but its true)

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Sri Lanka, Thailand, United Kingdom, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, United States
