About Me


I am currently living in New Zealand, I proudly work as a dairy farmer in this beautiful country. Over the last three years I have traveled the world, and seen and done a million amazing things. I would love to get into environmental work here in New Zealand and would love to make this place my home permanently.


"A day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplain. I live by this quote, and believe very deeply in its meaning.

I am a very caring person, who would do anything for anyone if they needed it. I am very loyal and have lots of friends, although I really miss them. Travelling is my life and everything I do is revolved around saving and completing my next trip.


"Live every day as if its your last"

I want to get the most out of life, I'm not afraid to take risks and I'm very proud of myself for everything I've accomplished so far.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined in 2012, and after a bad experience, I have recently decided to try it again.

I am about to start travelling Europe with my best friend Naomi, and we have decided that CouchSurfing would allow us to have the most authentic experience possible, allowing us to get to know locals and get tips for seeing the local area.


I love travel and experience cultures that most people only dream about experiencing. When travelling, I like to do as much as possible, so I love to take little day trips and see things that many people would miss.

At heart, I am a massive geek. I have a geology degree, and therefore love anything natural. I adore being in the countryside and going for walks. Wherever I am, and whatever I'm doing, I like to do lots of research, as I feel it enriches my experiences. I am also a keen photographer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love all Richard Dawkins books, and anything factual. I'm much happier reading about science than novels.

I enjoy movies of all types, apart from scary ones, as I get nightmares :(

Music - Generally EDM, but I also like classical

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One amazing thing I've done...Where does one even begin with this question?
I've started and stopped, deleted and re-written this passage more times than I can imagine, and i'm still struggling to chose one.
I've seen and done a lot of amazing things over the last few years, but visiting Easter Island - the most isolated island on the planet - has to be my favourite.
Standing amongst the ancient Moai, looking out over the vast pacific ocean whilst contemplating the complex civilization which very recently roamed these shores is indescribably profound.
I am one of the lucky few people who get to visit this remote and spectacular place - my biggest accomplishment!
