About Me

Im from Eden but live often in Melbourne. Traveling I love to hike, busk with my music, see art galleries & museums, learn the local culture & play pool if you are up for a game? COVID SAFETY; I’m double vaccinated. I keep updating myself on what hotspot areas to avoid and when I'm out I social distance when possible. I use masks & sanitiser especially on transport.

I started travelling and hosting solo when I left home at age 17. I've hosted over 30 people (Spain, Poland, America/Hawaii, South Korea, French, German, Aussie, etc.) with maximum was 5 French at once and longest stay was a French guy for a week who had my place to him self for a couple days before I came home. I'm keen to host again when I set down roots. If you are going to my home town, I'll give suggestions on what to see and do or maybe recommend who to stay with.

As a family, we hosted before my sister went to Europe and at a young age through my mum working as a flight attendant with Qantas/Jetstar, we travelled together overseas to USA, UK, South Africa, South America, Thailand, Bali, Singapore. My dads parents were Polish and my mums background is English so I have more than 1 passport. I grew up in a country area on the far south coast on NSW riding horses and cracking stock whips but my with dads old 2 seater plane in the shed along with the travel in my blood, I feel I’m not 1 for staying in 1 place very often.

I've travelled without my family in Australia, Hawaii, UK, New Zealand, Vietnam, Paris, New Caledonia, Poland, Germany, Holland & Belgium. Lived in NSW; Nethercote, Bega, Merimbula as well as Bagdad in Tasmania. I want to travel to most of the Europe countries & also all states of the USA but also other countries too.

NOTE; I don't use couch surfing as tinder for backpackers. I won't sleep with a host or remove clothing for you and wont accept massages unless you are trained. Please mention "Yellow" so I know you read this.

My music is my passion & happy to share with you my music if you like. I'm a singer-songwriter & play guitar/piano. I like to play pool/billiards, see art galleries/museums, bike ride, exercise/gym/yoga interested in magic & live comedy. Modelling I’ve been doing for 10+ years which became my profession & is my main income. Although sometimes I’ll have support, there is a range of admin as a freelancer I attend to from time to time. I often work with photographers or other artists so know a range of things about posing techniques & aesthetics which you might find interesting. I can share with you my experiences if you like & pass on my knowledge but I don’t do trading photoshoot for accommodation as a model otherwise if I did this all the time, It would be even harder to make a living. I’m not a daily selfie taker & as a contrast, hiking is almost my addiction so when I’m not planning work, I’m usually thinking about future places to explore on my days off. Maybe we can hike together or you can suggest somewhere to go?

I’m not the best cook but I think I can follow a recipe and always willing to try help out how I can but sometimes I don’t know the best way to support you so please let me know. Trying local food I love but please let me serve my own portions. I don’t expect you to feed me & I try not to carry much food with me but I’m happy to share my food with you. If you have any house rules or chores I can assist with, please mention and I’ll be mindful to follow them. One thing that might help you understand about me especially in social interactions is I’m slightly aspergers meaning I’m very focused on things so I can be distracted by something that really interests me, sometimes common or obvious gestures I don’t always pick up on, big social groups I’m not always sure the best way to handle. autism is different in males than females & it varies with different levels in people. Not many people realise it till they really get to know me or until I mention it but hopefully this doesn’t put you off from meeting me but will help you understand me better. I do feel embarrassed this is part of who I am sometimes but please communicate with me a bit more to help me understand things a bit better on what you would like or expect me to do.

Currently travelling/hiking EU, might go back to Hawaii & going to India mid November to mid December this year. I travel with my guitar & suitcase with busking equipment inside padded with my clothes. January & February I’m thinking Singapore & Malaysia. Possibly Japan and South Korea after that.
Other future places I want to go to; Japan, South Korea, East Timor, Papa New Guinea, Fiji, Capetown, Phillipines, Samoa, Canada, mainland America & more of Europe or that side of the world.
I'd maybe go back to; Bali, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos,

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To learn about cultures, meet new people and make friends. I like to understand the locals & it’s more enjoyable to be with people in a house than to book a place.
