About Me


to avoid the drudgery of working life as long as possible and become enlightened by a raft of travelling experiences.


I'm a Kiwi who enjoys meeting people from all strolls of life. Currently I'm on a work/travel program in the USA traveling around hoping to meet fun and interesting people who can provide me with some local insight and share in some good times!


Treat others as you'd like to be treated. I'd like to think I'm considerate and tolerant of most people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At this stage by meeting and staying with other CS hosts. Once I become based somewhere more permanent I'll be happy to host others


So far I've only had one but it was very positive. My CS host ended up becoming my roommate in Florida while I was based there for 4 months on my roaming work program.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walking through the French Quarter of New Orleans at 5am in the morning watching the mist lift over the Mississippi river was something spontaneous and beautiful I'll never forget.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you'd like to know more about New Zealand or the Cook Islands I can answer any questions you might have.
