About Me


Finding the time to update this profile....


I was born in NZ, grew up in Australia. I lived in China for 3 years before moving to Sweden to do a Master's in SCM.

I'm polite, respectful, a good listener, enjoy meeting people and am generally very easy-going. I'm passionate about food, different cultures, couch surfing and my friends and family.

I'm a perpetual mover, of which I seem to have very little control about. The universe just seems to drag me about and I'm happily going along with it at the moment.


What's something profound to say? Hmmm, can't think of anything right now. Excuse me, while I kiss the sky?

I just live my life trying to do my best and try to contribute good vibes/deeds to whatever situation I am in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Up till now, I've had the pleasure of both hosting and surfing. I love hosting because I have the opportunity to give someone a safe and warm place to sleep for the night and hopefully a tasty, healthy meal. I also enjoy hearing about people's travels and adventures. I love surfing too because it gives such a different perspective to going to touristy areas and staying at impersonal hotels.


CS has been a truly wonderful experience. I've met so many fantastic people and experienced so many different and cool situations that I would never have done without CS. I love that there are no hidden agendas, and goodwill is the prime motivator.


Reading, food/cooking, travelling, conflict minerals in supply chains (my thesis topic..... so have to love it or I'll go crazy!)
