About Me


Taking a break from travelling over the next few years until I finish University. But once I'm done looking to travel around the world for 3 years and am always looking for new people to meet and to learn about new places to travel to
Can host people at times but all depends on my uni schedule and where I am at any given time

My name I Matt I am currently 24 years old and love to explore the world and meet new people. I have been very lucky in my life to be able to plenty of travelling and have experienced many cultures and civilizations. Here in Melbourne I'm currently studying teaching and am in my final couple of years of travel
I love cooking and also learning how to cook new dishes from across the globe. Very friendly, open and easy to get along with, I talk a lot so forewarning there I will be chatty with you if/when your here. Always up for a beer and a night out and am very familiar with the best bars and clubs in the city. I love to get out of the city and drive down to the coast for a surf (particularly down towards the great ocean road and Phillip island).


Enjoy travelling and make as many friends across the globe as possible, only live once! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do have a place and a couch to crash on, I live with 2 other housemates but they're very friendly and open (1 is American as well). I'm always happy to have people crash/have dinner or drinks together or meet up with people in the city for a night out but it all depends around my university sadly, that's gotta come first, so just send me a message and let me know when your coming and I'll get back to you within 24hrs about whether I'm available


I've couched surfed around Europe and the US, yes we've all had bad ones and yes we probably regret them, however the bad ones have turned out to be great stories and the good ones are life long memories


I love sports, AFL, Soccer, Surfing, Basketball. But that's not all of who I am I'm not just some jock.
I love to cook for people and just listen to people and their stories. I talk a lot but I find that just listening to people and learning about them is one of my strengths

Music, Movies, and Books

Sadly I was never blessed with the ability to read many books I tend to just drift out and never be able to finish them. However I do make an exception for the Lonely Planet series.
Music, I love everything I'm very easy when it comes to that
Movies, love the Blues Brothers and Taken great stuff!
