About Me


Observing the beautiful nature of this world we live in. Learning and practicing ironwork and permaculture.


I started a business creating artistic ironwork furniture and structural elements, wanting to expand into woodwork and upholstery (if you can help that would be great!) Im a farm boy who wanted to be in the city.... got there and realised the farm is where my soul belonged. Always an optimist.. and somewhat of a dreamer. Easy going and open minded. Opinionated on some subjects but like to look at things from all perspectives... am a terrible arguer as I always change from one side to the other. Thats my take hehe.. check my friends comments to see what they think.


Be positive and spread good vibes where ever you may be. Live and learn. Enjoy the moment and live in the moment. Always look forward.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It all started by randomly finding myself at a CS party... and party we did. " years later I started travelling and remembered the party and had a look at the site and have never looked back since. Ive hosted and surfed all over.
