About Me


To learn, grow, and share.


I'm a physicist, doing research at the University of Adelaide. I'm also a gymnast, rockclimber, cyclist, scuba-diver, and lover of good food, good conversation, and untouched natural places. I grew up travelling and camping often with my mother, and my girlfriend and I cycled across the USA (in two different directions!) in 2009-2010, so I'm a huge fan of travelling slowly and meeting people along the way. I'd rather bake my own pizza than get drunk, and although I love salsa dancing and going out with friends, I'd rather share a good conversation and good company than go clubbing.

Life is not a zero-sum game. Do what you can, do it well, and try to make the world a little better by your actions, because those actions add up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I use this CS account when I'm travelling by myself, but my girlfriend and I have been on CS (using her CS account) since 2009, surfing together through the USA and Mexico, and hosting people at our home in Adelaide, South Australia. Her account, with more details of the places we've been and the people we've met is


My GF and I have stayed with a bunch of people in the USA and Mexico (Cincinnatti, Memphis, Piedras Negras, Del Rio, Ensenada...) and hosted people from Germany, France, the UK, and Taiwan. In every case we've met people who've been great fun to share time and tales with.
