About Me


To explore, expand knowledge and cultural experience and to have fun!


G'day mate! I'd love to meet you in your fabulous city! For the past 16 years or so I've been working and studying and so a big OE hasn't really been on the cards.... Until now! I'm currently in Nottingham doing a fellowship but have weekends to travel, not to mention holidays! I can't wait to explore new places, cultures and hang out with awesome people. Couch surfing appeals to my sense of adventure and desire to meet new people (and inherent lack of direction-a guide would be a great bonus!)

I'm passionate about music and have been to many gigs and festivals in NZ-hoping to get to as many festivals as possible in the UK/Europe in the next year.

I also LOVE fashion andhave a small fashion label that's been in hibernation while I was training. Nevertheless, I love shopping and people watching-taking in as much 'street-style' as possible in new places!

I'm into health and fitness and for the past year have been addicted to Bikram yoga! If I could find a studio in your city that'd be a fantastic bonus!


Treat people with kindness and that shall return to you in abundance

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My place in Nottingham is on the hospital campus-so not that appealing for couch surfers to visit! In return for your couch I can promise a couch/room back in NZ in a year's time-or the contacts of many of my friends back home that would love to host!


Nil so far.... Keen to change that ASAP!
