About Me


Travelling around Canada as part of working holiday!


Positive, friendly and driven kinda bloke. Love meeting new people from different walks of life and experience their culture and the world they live in!


Meet and get to know people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures around the world! Always try to be open minded and non judgmental.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


My first proper Couchsurfing experience was in August 2012, during a week trip to Vancouver, Canada. Since then I have couchsurfed in Gaborone and Francistown in Botswana, while 4x4ing across both Botswana and South Africa. Couchsurfing gave me a true locals view to both Vancouver and Botswana, and has given me the opportunity to meet some truly incredible and inspiring people. I am looking forward to Couchsurfing again and really hope to give back and host in the future!


Travel, experiencing different cultures and meeting new people is by far my no.1 'interest'! Followed by mountain and road biking, bush walking / hiking, driving and IT.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

First time traveling overseas to Wuhan, China. Huge culture shock, but I had the opportunity to meet some amazingly friendly and welcoming people, tasted some very interesting food (Boiled tortoise being one :/ ) and a cityscape that's ever changing and huge! Hope to travel back to China in the future!
