About Me

Hey, I'm a Kiwi who just recently moved to Wanaka but was traveling the world from 2016-2024.

Meeting new and interesting people is my favourite part of travelling and in my opinion there is no better way to do so than couchsurfing.

I dropped out of school when I was 16 and soon started solo travelling, working as a scuba diving instructor for about 3 years before slowing down in Berlin for 2.5 years where I worked as a software engineer. I then hit the road again for about another 2.5 years before moving to Wanaka, New Zealand in an attempt to slow down a bit.

In total I have backpacked through ~50 countries and 6 continents.

Looking forward to meeting you :)


I enjoy a lot of sports including paragliding, snowboarding, free diving, scuba diving, surfing etc.
