About Me


Escaping the Melbourne winter and looking for outdoorsy and musical adventures


Welll...I'm a sociable kind of chap. Love meeting new people and have a lot of time for my friends and family. I'm taking 6 months out of Australia to catch up with some pals that have left home and also to get a bit of 'me' time. I'm also looking for experiences that will open my eyes about how others see the world.

I play in a band back home (alt country, pooy kind of stuff) and have brought a travel guitar with me in case I get any withdrawals :-)


Communicate and connect. That's the heart of everything for me I guess!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just starting off ... I hope to offer some couch stays and catchups when I get back home.


Music (guitar, singing, festivals(!))
Ridiculous (and sometimes tenuous) word jokes
Cycling (check out the bikesurfing group - willing to lend you a city bike if you're in Melbourne!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming inside the arctic circle in the lofoten islands, norway. Surprisingly warm!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach...

About user centred design, and new approaches to coming up with solutions to social problems ... how to strum on a guitar ... some basic Yoga poses

As far as what I'd like to learn, I'm looking for surprises. Whoever can teach me how to properly relax wins a gold star!
