About Me


One more year in WA to see the sights, Still to do far north and far south.


I like kites, they make me fly and If I do not have some sort of adventure in my week it feels like something is wrong!

Have been living and working in Perth Australia for a year and a half now and I love it! I moved here when I had nothing better to do and by luck everything has fallen into place!


Life is what you make of it and everyday is an opurtunity to choose to get everything you can from it. Treat people well even if they choose not too. Judge but dont share unless asked. Take responsibilty for your actions and know that most other people in the world know a little as you do, have confidence in yourself.

I want to see and do everything, in the back of my mind I fancy a quiet life (house on beach with family etc) but there is soooo much out there and I want to experience as much if it as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


IN the past I have surfed, And I have hosted.

Right now I use Couch surfing to meet new people and to fill seats in the truck when I go on misisons.So if your up for a weekend trip somewhere hit me up cause it's highly likely I'll be into it!


surfed, hosted and toured Australia

Music, Movies, and Books

I like sci/fi fantasy novels, steven ericson/malazan series at the moment. Do not watch many movies currently. Music, live bands but not too heavy, enjoy the odd bit of DNB to feel a bit younger

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Diving with humpback whales in Tonga! Like a swimming bus, absoluting amazing. Stunning place tonga, almost stayed there.

Well, depending on where I am I can teach kitesurfing, Im an IKO acredited instructor. Also was a PADi scuba instructor once apon a time although my ticket has lapsed I still have the know how. Pretty good with the off road missions as well,
