About Me


Re-engage in my overarching mission in life; to provide, heal, care and love those in the world who welcome it, and to fight for the well-being of the downtrodden or forgotten.


I'm a friendly, deep-thinking, somewhat eccentric individual with a passion for entertaining and helping people. I'm very loyal and kind and I get along with most people.


Love, tempered by wisdom, works every time. Just (stop) and think for a while.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I make what little I own available for others while they travel. Somehow there's always enough to go around.


I have hosted thousands, almost all positive experiences, quality transactions of stories and skills.


I love philosophy, jokes, magic tricks, music and general conversation. I play the keyboard, violin, and several other instruments. I am a fully trained masseur and I'm always looking for people to practice on for free.

Music, Movies, and Books

I could no sooner choose a favourite song than a favourite star in the sky. Music, to me, is an expression of the soul. I like it all.

Back To The Future Trilogy, The Karate Kid Trilogy, The Matrix Trilogy, all Marvel movies, V for Vendetta...etc.

The Alchemist, Magician, The Neverending Story, The Tao Te Ching, The Bible.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Comedy Tour in Bath Spa....A whole night of sidesplitting laughter.
Seeing the "Big Five" all in one small journey through Kruger National Park, South Africa.
Making it across the southern coast of Australia in an 89 series BMW with a custom-made Hilux trailer on the back.
Honestly the most impressive place I've seen in Australia has got to be the Daintree Rainforest in Northern QLD, where everything glows magically at night.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to trade jokes, magic tricks and philosophies. I can offer to teach you juggling, sleight of hand and some massage techniques and I hope to learn some special things from you too. I love to jam so if you play an instrument get ready for some sweet tunes.

I'm a bit of a theological buff, on the controversial side, but I'll only indulge in such conversations with particular people.
