About Me


to experience the world and step out of my comfort zone


I'm a 29yo guy from Melbourne, Australia. I'm really easy going, warm, friendly and have a great sense of humour! (well, I think so anyway haha)
Also, I'm gay - although that's a part of who I am, it doesn't define me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well a friend of mine told me about this site and I thought it was a great concept so I decided to join.


I had my first couchsurfing experience a few years ago in Barcelona and since then have met so many incredible people. I look forward to meeting many more in the future!


I'm passionate about music and art. I play guitar and I enjoy photography. I just bought an old russian lomo camera and I can't wait to take that with me on my travels!
