About Me


I'm a passionate, easily excitable person, and also pretty mellow.
I'm love life and enjoying what I have. I'm pretty fun and adventurous, I can also be pretty funny :)
love travelling, tasting new foods and beers, being a pastry chef, and meeting friendly/cool people who teach me new things!


Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative - Oscar Wilde
Everything happens for a reason!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would love to show any visitors in Australia around Melbourne!
unfortunately I don't have the space for couchsurfers at the moment, but when I do I will happily host!


Cooking, hiking, Rock climbing and bouldering (just a beginner), finding new music, meeting people who show me new music, skateboarding [badly] and drinking beer [well and in large quantities].

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived in a sharehouse with 20 people when I was in Paris. The place was run by a crazy russian artist who had been in the French Foreign legion.
The sharehouse had 2 windows, and the was made out to the neighbours as an "Art School". Going in and out of the house, we had to carry Art Portfolios, and be in groups of no bigger than 4. We were given a rule book that was over 10 pages.
That's just the beginning.
