About Me


Just enjoying meeting people from all over the place


Hi eveeryone. My name I Matt I am currently 21 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. At home I am a barrister and make some of the best coffee in Melbourne (but I don't like to brag about it.....much) I love to joke around with people but I like to think I am a very fun, friendly and understanding person. I'm pretty easy going, happy and very open minded to life
I like to take in as much information about a place and it's people as I can.
At home I also like to play a variety of sports including the best sport in the world, Australian Rules Football (Most of you wont know what that is but I'm always more than happy to explain it .) But I also love to play Soccer as I used to be the keeper for the Australian U21 Soccer team until injuries forced my early retirement. But I still love to play the game and am currently coaching at a High School, also Basketball and the odd casual game of netball on a Sunday night with friends
I LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook and I especially love to cook for other people and to see people's happy faces when they are full, I think this may have come from my old Italian and Spanish heritage
Most of all though I just like to put a smile on people's faces as much as I can, seeing other people smile is what gives me great joy
So hopefully I might be able to crash on your couch sometime when I go to your city or catch up for a drink when your in mine. Most of all however I hope that I can make some great life long friends from this


Find some happiness in life howver you can, you only get one shot at it after all but just never loose yourself in the process. Remember, have fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sadly I haven't been able to let anyone crash on my couch on account that I have no spare rooms! I am looking for a bigger place to live but until then all I am able to do is have a drink, chat and have some fun. I'm more than happy to show you round the great city of Melbourne and it's surrounds when I'm free so if this sounds appealing I'm your guy :P


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!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been very blessed with a couple of travel happy parents and as such I've been to over 50 coutries, the best trip however was last year riding a motorbike from Shanghai over central Asia and the Caucus into Europe before it broke down in Belarus :P
I've been chased by snow leopards
Wrongfully Arrested at the Vatican
Broken Bones
Climbed Mauna Kea
Surfed Pipeline
Patted Tigers
and Seen the edge of the Earth on multiple continents
But telling you everything now would be boring, I've got plenty more but you'll have to hear them over a drink
