About Me


Explore our beautiful underwater world


For the last 4 years I have been travelling the world in many different ways with a lot of different people. I find my interests and passions change frequently with the different people and influences I come across. A good friend once told me "The only constant thing in life is change" and since then I have let that theory sit with me.
However my passion for the water and our delicate environment has always been strong. I am very drawn to the sea and try my best to participate in ECO friendly activities as much as I can.

I had a hard time learning anything in school so I left early and started working full time to save for my dreamed of OE. I have learnt so much about culture, language, people, tourism, geology through my travels and it has given me a thirst for new knowledge and a desire to learn. This year I have taken my love for the ocean to a new level, becoming a dive instructor.

I travel and live with a broad minded perspective without the hassle of having to judge anyone on their thoughts or perspective. Everyone has a right to think and believe whatever they will and who is to say they are wrong? I will never say i don't like something until i try it and am actively searching for new things to try!

I will always couch surf till the day I die so please message me, meet me, surf with me, host me. I can't wait to meet you :)


The only constant thing in life is change

Everything works out in the end, and if its not working out, its not the end

Life is not about how many breaths you take, but the moments that taky your breath away

Everyone dies, but not everyone lives

Smile, always

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In my first few months of travelling I was told about couch surfing. I joined and spent my first experience in switzerland with an amazing host, Stephan. It was one of the best traveling experiences I have had and since then I have travelled as much as I can with couch surfing using it in almost every country I have been to. I also love opening my home to travellers when I can. It is the first thing i do when I move to a new town or plan a trip anywhere. I'm hooked and as I said above, I will CS always :)


CS has brought me together with some of my dearest friends.


Good music, good people, good vibes.

I am interested in most things and intrigued by the rest.
In love with music, can't ever stop dancing.

Swimming, beaches, diving, skiing, rock climbing, poi, hoops,aerial acro, acro yoga, tai chi, animals, heights, vegan food, fruit smoothies, yoga, drums, guitar, photography ... the list goes on. Pretty much the motto goes- try everything once (at least) and always make the best out of every situation.

I really want to learn to kite surf. I couch surfed with an amazing host, Gigi, in Cypress that took me for one lesson and I am now hooked! This is my next mission - to learn to kite surf

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Every day is amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I get my inspiration from people I meet and places I go. Every day I'm inspired to try something new. Its a strange desire for the unknown..

I am more than happy to teach poi spinning, hula hooping, yoga, diving, share environmental passions and teach or share some of my favourite vegan recipes.

Currently wanting to improve my spanish!
