About Me


Live the dream.


Gday All,

Id like to start of by saying the I am, like many Aussies, a very easy going and laid back person. I love to talk with new people and share experiences, and of course listen to the experiences of others as everyone has at least one story to tell.

I have a Diploma and a Degree in Computer Science, yes I am a nerd. University life was very fun and I was a very active student, especially in the Wakeboard and Snowboard clubs. It was easy to be passionate about these clubs because I really enjoy these sports. When I finished my degree I decided to see the world.

I took off for two years traveling the world where i lived in Canada, USA, France, England and Switzerland. In between my working holiday locations I did a lot of backpacking and couch surfing! In addition I took one organised tour, a pre paid bus journey from London to Sydney over land!

All my travel experiences have been great. So many good memories and so many great people! I could list all my experiences here but that would make my profile huge!

Now I am back in Melbourne, Australia working full time and trying to get back into a "normal" life! Haha yeh right! I intend to travel and couch surf again! But until then why don't you come and crash on my couch and allow me to repay my dues to the couch surfing community!


You only live once so make the most of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love the whole couch surfing concept! During my travels I stayed with many hosts and now I am putting my couch up for surfing to repay some dues to the couch surfing community!
