About Me


Hike, bike and study


I'm super easy going, laid back, I have a good sense of humour and love a good laugh.
I am an honest person and call it how I see it.

I like to be outdoors and in nature, whether that's hiking, biking, climbing... whatever. I'm a bit of a geek (I love science and biology), but I also love to have the odd crazy night in town.


Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS events. Haven't hosted yet, but hope to in the future. Meeting locals and other tourists through cs.


Only positive.
I love how people friendly the couch surfing community is.


Photography- Any type of photography, big on adventure and landcape right now. Hooked on instagram currently.

I have a Science degree in Microbiology, Genetics and Virology... so I am also a wee bit of a nerd.
Love sport, field hockey, tennis, music, hiking, partying. Just the average young kiwi ready to conquer the world.
