About Me


To enjoy every step along the way

I'm happy meeting new people and hearing about different ways of thinking and perspectives on life. I enjoy open, honest conversations and challenging discussions.


Working on it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling through New Zealand's lovely North Island at present meeting new people and exchanging ideas and skills.


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, systems of healing, the placebo effect, bouldering and climbing and lots of other things.

Music, Movies, and Books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking for 4 days on the West Highland Way in Scotland with no previous camping experience- I didn't know how beautiful Scotland was and how important a sleeping mat, the right backpack and correct footwear are.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach/Share: I can help teach basic relaxation massage, how to make an awesome black forest cake /Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte) and how to do 3 ball juggling, German and some basic Mandarin.
Learn: I want to learn French, Irish Gaelic and any other language that I can, how to dance to any type of music, cook different foods, bake good bread, how to do reiki or lomi lomi or any other healing art, surfing, rock climbing, circus, yoga, meditation
