About Me


I've been helped by so many amazing, generous people while traveling, so would like to return the favor..! I host when I am at home in New Zealand, and enjoy meeting like-minded people when I travel for work. I'm currently in France (May 2015).


I work on sailboats, and travel a lot. When I'm home in NZ, I have a small business producing grape juice.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a few really nice travellers a few years ago when I had a suitable apartment, but haven't for a while. Recently back onto couch surfing as a way to join events and meet interesting people while I travel for work.


Recently learned how to kite surf, and am loving that! I enjoy art, reading, guitar, browsing through book stores and antique shops.. hiking, red wine :-).
