About Me


Finding people by the most obscure of ways possible.


Currently I am on a quest! Strange and mysterious things happen and I don't know quite how to describe it.

I dont like to stick to just one thing, but at the same time when I crave something I put all of my energy into it.

Travelling is an example of it.

I have studied but I learn from experience.

Travelling is an example of this.

I am stoutly independent, but the friends I have and the friends I meet make me into the person I am...

I am doing exactly what I want to do, and I am free

ps) ''Method of Revolution''
is the name of my last novel that I wrote.


The meaning of life is to...
sorry, that will spoil my novel.

To make fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


NELSON COLLECTIVE was so awesome. Shiny Shiny


Always wanting to meet new surfers, especialy by surprise encounters. All ways the best way possible


I like:

abandoned tents. tents without a lake in them. mad cows inside milk boxes, stirred not shaken. chill out stage. "I like this music, you know nothing, Jon Snow". Captain Friend Zone. crepes with chocolate and banana. hiking without lightning storm and no paparazzi. the tram to alcatraz.

Sleeping in the outdoors. Going for random adventures. Playing with fire. Plenty more interests, just wait and find out...

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite book is an Atlas, my favourite movies are Fight club, Butterfly effect, Donnie Darko and I like
Punk, Rock, Alternative...
Rise Against, Wizo, Tool, Melincolin, Strung out, Evanescence, Seether, Refused and Incubus.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Full moon party on a beach in a cave with some of my best friends, sitting around a camp fire, with fire dancers and drummers and the best of times. (Back home in Dunedin, New Zealand)
Secondly, Copland Hotpools in the mountains in sublime warmth compared with ice and snow all around us.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning that everyone is all the same... completely unique!

What I Can Share with Hosts

People tell me I'm a good teacher and story teller.
