About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Ducks.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Perth, but then Melbourne became my home for about 8 years, then I moved to live in the USA it's this new thing it's lasted 4 years now it's pretty wild.

I work as a union organizer 11 days every two weeks (if you're staying when I'm working, I work from home so pls don't be offended if I hang out with you sometimes and have to shut myself away some times). For the other 3 days each fortnight I'm actually a pond.

I enjoy strong black coffee, Eastern food, and yarns.

PHILOSOPHY

Artichoke.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host and surf. You know, the usual.
I joined in 2009 and for 4 years surfed and hosted a LOT.

Just recently, I am able to host again, and I'm glad to be back.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In July 2009, I rode a horse through the mountains of Bulgaria. It was radical.
In December 2009, I climbed 黄山 mountain in 安徽.
