About Me


makeing it up as I go along


hmmm. how to describe my self.. I'm a tree in a forest.. well not really.. I like change. I'm traveling at the moment and it's great to have time to think about whatever I want right now and get inspired by things that are different than what I'm used to. I like having totaly random conversations. I love it when your views get challenged and when your forced to really think about why you think the way you do. heading home to Australia pretty soon. I'm gonna miss Canada


I want to live until i have a long grey beard and I can make my grand kids listen to my weird stories . Live and let live. The only way to act is to benefit others. The best way to think is positive no matter what.. even if its hard. If you need practice then you need practice... thats It.. simple. I don't KNOW anything I just believe some stuff:) haha cliche cliche.. like I'm here now so I defiantly will be again so theres no need to worry. I don't really subscribe to the 'i'm only here for the blink of an eye lid so i better live as much as I possibly can' philosophy... i believe in reincarnation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hung out with a fair few couch surfers in Vancouver and hosted only once so far. I want to surf/host/meet up more though now I'm a bit more settled in Van


i actually couch surfed a lot before finding out about this website. I always seem to befriend random people who offer to let me stay with them. Maybe it's my beard and smile hehe. or something else, I don't know


People and their different ways of living and views of the world. oh and books, modern art, music, getting out in the forest. I like bus and train rides and interesting food. I'm a bit preoccupied with thinking about ways to make positive communities for people that need them right now.. well i hvae been for a long time theres gotta be a better way youz guyz!

Music, Movies, and Books

Pip Pip is a great book about how different cultures view time. House of leaves is a really interesting book that everyone should at least look up even if they never read it. I wan't to have the energy to read it one day soon (it takes a lot). I'm reading a book called healing stories about the value of storytelling right now. thats pretty cool

I've been listening to a lot of Animal Collective and Rancid lately can't wait to discover some canadian bands. I love music thats really origonal, or played with tons of passion and energy or just has a lot going on in it. love some good techno as well:)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

New york city, shanghi, delhi. those cities are freakin amazing. Mountains in Nepal and Canada. So many festivals so many places with so many different cultures. Places like Vancouver and Melbourne are great because all the cultures come together

Teach, Learn, Share

??????? Imagine if when you were x age, someone gave you whatever musical instrument you wanted, taught you how to teach yourself and gave your recording lessons on the net and you got linked up with people that were into the same sounds as you were. and you had your school hours cut back by a few hours a week cos you got credit for all the fun stuff you were doing. or maybe if you like visual art or you just wanted to organise stuff for other people you could do that as well. But it wasn't just people from your neighbourhood it was people from all around the world too. If there was as much support for music communities in the ruraly areas of the world as there is for sporting communities then lots of people would be alot happy. creating stuff feels good, gives you energy and helps you understand yourself and your world much better. change education!!
