About Me


To challenge myself and connect


I suppose you could define me by where I am right now, but it changes day to day. I'm happy meeting new people and learning about new ways of thinking and living. I enjoy open, honest conversations and would be happy to share them with whoever's keen.


Spreading positive energy wherever I can.I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.-- Stephen Grellet Of course this is an ideal philosophy but I'd love to embody it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At present I am living in Melbourne, Australia and am happy to meet up with surfers to explore this great city- I used to be a tour guide here but there is always more to explore.


Surfing with different people across the world, going to CS meetings and hosting some people and having amazing varied experiences every time.


Sharing and sampling lots of different cuisines, music, languages, laughs and ideas.
I also enjoy philosophy, learning, massage, food, health, bouldering and climbing and lots of other things.
