About Me


Travel, Experience, Learn, Share


Retired Businessman, Tour Guide Extraordinaire & Master Illusionist - Magic Max

Come and experience the magic: I am very open minded, adventurous, easy going and an avid learner and mentor. I am passionate about life and achievements, love traveling and enjoy meeting people and sharing experiences!

Been traveling across continents and living in various parts of the world ever since I was 5 years old. If ever we are in the same area, hit me up! Travel is my work, my pastime, my passion, MY LIFE!

I am an Entrepreneur who enjoy the most traveling, learning and sharing my knowledge with others. When I am not traveling or building successful businesses, then you will find me teaching English, Business or related topics or studying.

I have spent the last ten years traveling full time and when traveling I visit more than two countries on a month on average. I have also lived full time in several countries whereby I have traveled the full expanse of those places.

I am funny, talkative and kind and right now I am working on traveling throughout China and much of Europe.


I am health conscious, do not drink nor smoke nor do drugs ever! I do not gamble, am open minded and lead a very fun, happy, outgoing life! Always interested in adventure and to explore new places and new cultures.

Live everyday to the fullest!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted in my homes in Australia and Philippines and also in China. I have also been hosted during my travels in China, Cambodia and Thailand.


So far good! I prefer to meet people willing to share their experiences in life, travel and otherwise.
