About Me


I grow up on the Gold Coast, Australia, where I completed my Bachelor of Business in Event Management. I then moved to Sydney and worked here as a conference organiser for 2 years. I had the greatest time living in Sydney - such an amazing city!
Here I met my awesome travel buddy/bestie Steph. She hosted at her apartment for about a year, so I was very much involved with her and hosting couch surfers/helping them explore the city.

I saved as much as I could, quit my job and nor travelling about Europe with my friend for as long as we can!


You have to take chances and always go with your gut feeling

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's so great to meet so many people and to even get to know your local area so much more by showing people around. All our hosting references can be seen on my friends page - steph suggo


Its exciting now to experiencing being a couch surfer after being a host! The travel adventure we have just started would be no where as fun without couchsurfing :) Finding the hidden local secrets is the best part about every destination!
