About Me

The mission section of this profile when I started it was: Take it all in. I guess that hasn't changed!

I think maybe, if I was a cat, curiosity might kill me. I'd like to think I've been gifted a genetic sense of humour. I very much enjoy people. People are amazing. I love the absurdities and coincidences of everyday life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

People = culture, and there is no better introduction to the culture of a place than through someone living there. Bit-by-bit, couchsurfers are restoring my faith in humanity. Both as a host and as a surfer. I've met some incredible people through this platform!

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how to make origami paper boats, or the Melbourne Shuffle, or to knit, or how to use a camera, or some different theories on how people learn, or how to crochet a square, or how to confuse people on tinder, or how to do a fishtail braid? Do you want to learn any of those things?

I want to learn new languages, learn about new cultures, learn new dance moves, sing new songs.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Enthusiasm (not expertise) in the kitchen! General enthusiasm for housekeeping!
Stories of climbing different buildings! Stories of falling off things! The work of my favourite artists! Some entertaining blogs to follow when you have a lot of time to kill!
