About Me


Discover the universe by living life to the full with a caring and open heart.


Grew up in sunny Nelson at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Most famous Nelsonian has to be Ernst Rutherford who first split the atom, and Courtney Love went to boarding school here too...

Moved to Wellington (capital city) think Lord of the Rings (was an extra in that), haven't traveled widely (yet).

I have a couch, so am willing to let people crash on it, my flat mate who's couch it is won't mind either, but prefer some warning first...

I work in the NGO sector as a manager, and have been involved in politics and film (currently finishing a documentary on musician Stevie Starr).

I am free spirited and friendly and love meeting new people.


Believe there is something bigger than me, so I am spiritual in a sense but I know to keep things in perspective and enjoy the time while I am here on earth.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to crash out on other's couches as it is cheaper and more friendly to share a couch. And I want to meet new people as I travel...

Update, I am traveling to the States Oct 17 to 7 Nov 2008 and have already connected with some interesting people here. It is so good to see such a good community...


My friend's places at the moment as I haven't travelled far (yet)



Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Philip K. Dick, Asimov, Dune, The Godfather and some other nerdy ones.

Films: Star Wars, Once Upon a Time in the West, Paul Thomas Anderson films, Ingmar Bergman films etc...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It is cliche for this town (Wellington) but being extra in Lord of the Rings and seen a shot of me on the big screen.

Teach, Learn, Share

Philosophy, empathy (putting things and life into perspective), politics (political thought that spans the political left/right perspectives). Spirituality.
