About Me


See all of Australia in a year and meet interesting people!


I'm a friendly sort of guy who doesn't take himself to seriously. I am very honest and trustworthy. I have had a lot of fun in my travels so far visiting various country's and have found that the greatest thing about traveling is the people you meet. Thus here i am looking to meet new people and have new experiences.


Kinda cliche but live for every moment and fill your days with as many great experiences as possible. Always absorb knowledge and understand that sometimes listening is the greatest tool of all. I will always grasp every moment that i feel could change my life and most of all have no regrets!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new at Couch surfing but i have been hosted before which I've found a fantastic way of meeting new people and discovering new areas of a country.


I love travelling and meeting new people. I do a lot of hiking and i also do wildlife photography on a regular basis. I enjoy playing Cricket, Football, Tennis and Pool. When it's miserable outside i do a lot of reading and enjoy watching movies.
I'm a big animal lover, especially birds and have worked with animals all my life.
