About Me


to find a cure for hangovers


I'm a 26 yr old easy going guy from Melbourne who discovered his love of traveling after a 6 month euro-trip opened his eyes to a big world. Since then I did a 9 month Americas trip from Canada through to Argentina which was amazing and have also done a a good part of Asia, the middle east, sub continent and Africa. Over 50 countries later, its time for me to attempt to stay put for a while. I am always up for partying and having a drink or 10 so if you enjoy a few drinks then i am sure we will get along fine! I Love meeting new people from around the world and showing them around Melbourne.


all of the worlds problems can be solved over a couple of beers
