About Me


Living in California being a raft guide and meeting lots of people to have good chats with to try sort out what I want to do next


Im a pretty out going sort of person, ill give anything a go (as long as it seems like a decent enough idea tho)
Like being outside doing something cool, winters i spend my time snowboarding, last season was in Lake Tahoe thins next season im going up to Whistler, would call myself a winter person as i like the snow and freedom of the cold too, well more than iv enjoyed the heat of raft guiding in California this past summer.
Friends would probability describe me as a bit special as i don't really mind what people think about me, so ill most likely say whats on my mind and what i think.
I like to help others tho and talk things over with them as i usually have a different perspective to see things from.


Pretty much just wing it, let it sort itself out

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Never done it yet but ive heard loads about it, plan to travel like this over the USA from West to East through september, october and november. Also getting onto WOOFing along the way to get some more cool experiences.


I love to talk to people, this is what makes me like my current job of raft guiding soo much, they are pretty much stranded on a boat with me and my stories all day!
But yeah I super enjoy chatting to people and just finding out new things and having chats about things I never knew about.
Learning about the way people mingle and interact together is something that fascinates me too.
These things are quite enjoyed with beers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Pretty amazing thing ive done is to move to California to come get a job in a ski resort, arrive without a job or a home and manage to find the both within a week worth of riding the chairlift chatting to people and opening doors.
Seen? Well in 2008 I went on a 28 day Contiki tour of Europe, best 3 photos of the trip were of me with each the Eiffel tower, London tower bridge and the Roman Colosseum.
Next thing that pops to mind was a cool as lightening storm i saw while in central California, awesome!
