About Me

I live off-the-grid 1.5 hours out of Melbourne, near Healesville, with my 17 y.o. daughter.

I have a solar software business and enjoy time travelling, meeting new people, while researching markets and making connections.

Love experiencing a new cultures and looking forward to more travel after a long period of renovating my old farmhouse.

Note: visitors have to make their way to Healesville, train to Lilydale then bus to Healesville.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

People are awesome! I love having guests stay at our home in Melbourne Australia. It's great to meet people with different backgrounds and share ideas, meals and a laugh.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like many styles of music from old school R&B to Bowie to funk and occasionally classical. I like historical fiction as a relaxing way to learn more about other cultures. I'm travelling with my guitar as one of my passions is songwriting.
