About Me


Make the most out of life and have fun doing it - Kia Kaha!


I reckon my mates would say that I've got a great sense of humour and always up for a laugh. I'm fairly outgoing, sociable and like meeting new people. I'm fairly well traveled so am open minded and have a broad range of friends from all walks of life.


I believe life in the Maori proverb: "He aha te mea nui o te ao?He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!
What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am just new, but look forward to getting involved in the coach surfing movement.


I am just new, but look forward to getting involved in the coach surfing movement.


I enjoy watching and playing sport as one of my big interests. Sports like cricket, rugby, football, and surfing especially. I have a great time beating my flatmate in fifa on the xbox at our flat. I also sing in a community choir and I like to party in town when I can. I like to keep fit through swimming, jogging (in summer) and yoga.
Surfing is a real passion of mine, which I am trying to get back into after an injury. All my training, saving and plans are aimed towards getting back in riding waves.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - Coen Brothers, The Shawshank redeption, Star Wars trilogy (originals), Jack Nicholson films.....

Music - Diverse mix from Rap, Hip Hop, Techno D & B, Opera, Classical, Soul, Rock (favourite band is PJ).

Books - I like to read Indian Historical fiction, biographies and interesting non fiction books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Returning to Bangladesh and visiting the village of the girl I sponsor. The way that the whole village turned out to greet us like we were royalty and how generous they were to us made it a quite emotional experience.

Traveling around China and meeting so many people that were all so friendly and keen to find out what I was doing and where I was from.

Visiting the Franz Joseph Glacier on the west coast of NZ. It was so different from anything I had ever seen. Climbing all over this enormous piece of ice, with tons of ice sculptures, caverns and holes.

Teach, Learn, Share

As an early childhood teacher I guess I know a bit about child development. I've done a bit of ESOL work, so could help people learning English.
I'm always keen to learn some useful phrases in other languages.
Keen to go surfing (on actually waves) with any travelers who surf too. Or tramping/hiking/walking around NZ or overseas.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Bangladesh, Ireland

Countries I’ve Lived In

China, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States
