About Me


I backpacked previously for around 5 years -
started in south america, worked my way up to central and north america, over to europe, down to australia, back to singapore, back to south america, then to north america, then was crew on a sail boat and sailed from australia to papua new guinea and the Solomon Islands.
I still travel every chance I get.


I love animals, travelling, music and meeting new people

I've always wanted to work with animals and conservation work and I teach English and work in sustainability.

I travelled around South America and Central America in 2012 and 2013 using couch surfing.

now i'd like to travel around the rest of the world and meet so many more different people from different cultures and learn so much more.
