About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an Australian recently returned to Melbourne after living for four years in Christchurch, New Zealand where I studied landscape architecture. I am slowly reconnecting with family, friends, and the unique Australian landscape. In June I will be traveling to the States to visit my partner who lives there.

I really love to meet people and hang out over a wine!

PHILOSOPHY

'The river laughed. Yes, so it was, everything came back, which had not been suffered and solved up to its end, the same pain was suffered over and over again.' -Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

I live slowly, practice meditation, and avoid getting too caught up in the fast pace of city life. I believe that life is potent with wealth only if you slow down enough to see and feel it. I believe in honesty and treating people with compassion.

And I love wine, food and adventuring!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I haven't couchsurfed in a while but have done in England, Bulgaria, Romania and Austria. While living in New Zealand we commonly had hitch hikers and travelers staying with us.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Always positive- it is such a fantastic way to meet people even just briefly, and hopefully repay the favour in the future.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love old school 90s movies: Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Clueless etc, or the complete other end of the spectrum: Documentaries or moving films with beautiful cinematography.

Almost anything with raw instrumental, and blues, folk, hip hop.

I read mostly non-fiction stuff relating primarily to design or art. My favourite current book would be Boomtown 2050 by Richard Weller about population growth in Australia. I am currently reading a book on the History of Art, and another one about Hatha Yoga.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiked the Heaphy Track in New Zealand
