Easy going, friendly and adventurous


Make the most of every opportunity and appreciate the world we live in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet up with other couch surfers and hang out, chat, explore.


Have couch surfed in Sao Paulo Brazil for a few nights with an awesome host and met another couch surfer along the way who i explored the city with the next day. Attended a couch surfing get together and met many couch surfers and also won an awesome t-shirt on the night. Also couch surfed in New Caledonia and met up with the same couple when I returned two years later.
Have met up with couch surfers in Singapore, Vietnam, Japan, New Caledonia and in my home town. Been on some awesome adventures and made new friends along the way.


I have been getting back into wave surfing again, Raglan is not to far from where I live.
I like trying things at least once, I've sky dived, bungee jumped, white water rafted, wake boarded, snow boarded, hiked, climbed and kayaked.
