About Me

I love nature and meeting new people. I like to travel to places with good music and people.

I've been living in Melbourne for 2 years. I worked in South Australia for 7 months as well, which had beautiful landscape and I didn't expect to have such a great time in the middle of no-where. I've also been up to the gold coast and travelled around in a van, visited Tasmania and drove to the beaches and explored which was beautiful and lately New Zealand south island.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy learning about and from other people, and I love staying with them as I learn first-hand what it's like in their culture and country. It's also a another way to see more of the world and get some inside tips on where to go and what to do!


Music. In every way, in every forms.
Soul, Jazz, Reggae, Dub, Downtempo, Word Music....
When I lived in Italy I used to organise events and building a sound system, collecting and playing records.
Bikes. A fun way to get around off the main roads.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I decided to quit my job, and move to Melbourne because it changed my way of seeing the world into something deeper and more colourful.

In Nepal I went trekking on the Panchase trek and home-staying, talked to locals using mime and eating fresh honey from the honeycomb.

Teach, Learn, Share

How to make a proper pizza or pesto, how to do a head stand, riding a bike with shoelaces unlaced or some Yoga asana.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Laughter, good music and stories.
