About Me


Sick of second hand information, want to experience and find out the truth for myself.


I'm currently a high school teacher in Brisbane.
Im currently saving money because I'd like to leave Australia for a while. After backpacking in South East Asia for 3 months, I now know what I want to do next with my life. See more and do more. Those three months were the best three months of my life to date. Cannot wait to be back on the road.


Save a large sum of money, then start a youtube travel channel and blog where I can work while traveling

Id like to get a job as an English teacher in a non-english speaking country like South Korea, Japan ect.

Work a season in a snow town (Still deciding where. Switzerland? France? Canada? Japan? HELP!)

Learn a second language (have not picked on yet)


Its not where you're from, its where you're going.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer assistance and couches when I can.


A well traveled friend told me about it. Although I havent hosted a lot of people. I try to help travellers in my city as much as I can.


Other than travelling and meeting people, I also love snowboarding, BBQ's, photograph and videography.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cambodia was a really cool country. Angkor Wat was truly amazing. Everyone should visit there at least once in their life and wander around the old temples. New York City on the other hand, is the opposite but equally amazing. I would definitely go back.

Teach, Learn, Share

I write something here when I know.
