About Me

Recently turned 27, single, adore cats, love literature (Poetry & History), probably have more tea than blood in my body.

Work in marketing & sales on behalf of one of the three largest manufacturers of electronics in the entire world, specifically selling solar arrays.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be honest, I'm after somewhere to stay until I can settle closer to where I'm working this Summer (Bayside). Sick of sub-tenancy but need time to look & apply.

When I first arrived in Melbourne in late 2015, I was a humble doorknocker with lot's of lovely and extraordinarily interesting backpackers (German, Norwegian, Scottish, Swedish, English, Dutch, etc.!).

So why waste money on a month's rent when I could instead meet new people?!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ate a live huntsman spider as a dare on a date.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm rather well-read. Because of that—I am acutely aware that I don't know everything.

Prefer to hear what people think, rather than to expatiate on my own ideas.

Know about everything there is to be known concerning photovoltaic power!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Speak English to a high standard, if anyone needs practice with that...

Have a sizable collection of books which you would be welcome to if you liked.

Fairly broad understanding of Western philosophy (Greek & Roman and Anglo-American analytic). . .

Drink delicious teas for you to try...
