About Me


Spreading my love of food, wine, music and travel with people.


I love meeting new people and visiting new places. I have only hosted one couchsurfer so far and I have not stayed with anyone. But I hope to here very soon. I am very passionate about wine, travel and food. I am also crazy about chocolate and cheese! and bacalhau... hehe. Living in NZ and working for Felton Road. Learning everyone I can about Biodynamic viticulture.


Talk is overrated! If you have an important question, ask it! Be sincere! Take chances.
