About Me


Discovery and adventures


I've learnt the fine skill of adaption. Not a nude beach in Scotland winter time level. But easy going drifting smiles kind of thing. I like to were socks and put on blues tunes whilst I slide around the house sweeping floors and playing guitar in bathrooms that are really big. Its gives you that live stadium feel.

My true passion is lighting for film sets though and after this voyage I think it would be fun to hold surfers in studio bedroom sets.


Keep Breathing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My original idea was to carry a extra couch around with me. But unfortunately it didn't go down well with the airport check in and Ive heard that blow up couches are bad for your back..


I've slept on a lot of couches now. Friends, family or randoms. I have adapted the ability to morph into any stitching or fabric design..


Singing songwriting and saving drowning rainbows.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Listening to the Babel sound track by "Gustavo Santaolalla." whilst the snow was falling over Dresden creating this winter wonder land whilst sipping on mulled wine and waiting from my turn on the bobsled. You don't really get moments like that in Australia.

Also standing at a bar in Vienna and having robots rolling around and topping up my beer at a robot convention was mad.

Walking down old Las Vegas blvd in Las Vegas. With Elvis turned to the max and the hot Nevada sun hitting me. The two elements couldn't have been more perfect.
