About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make most of what I've got, and learn as much as I can.

HOST ANYONE I've previously met anywhere in the world and promote Tasmanian tourism.

ABOUT ME

Currently in France then heading home mid July. Next trip I will be heading to Morocco to stay with a host I met in Korea in November.

/*Living in Albuquerque in New Mexico studying architecture until May 2nd then I will be traveling towards NYC until the 28th then flying to Oslo then heading upto Tromsø then over to Finland and head from the north to the south.

I'm currently reside in Launceston, but work on the east coast during university break. So if you message me during the holidays you might get the opportunity to come at stay at my mothers place in St Marys */

I lived in Whistler/Vancouver area straight after I finished high school in 2009 as a gap year experience which lasted two. This really taught me a lot, I had many mentors that have shaped me to who I am today. A lot of people welcomed me with open arms to teach me anything. Any of my friends who could make the effort to come to Canada were welcome to stay with me for as long as they wished.

PHILOSOPHY

Work, study and play hard;

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love how this website works, it really provides the missing link between getting to meet the locals when your a tourist. It really makes it easy when you visit a foreign city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My best CS experience was with Kie in Seoul, South Korea. Never did I think that after one night I would end up spending 25 with the same person every day. This one of the best experiences I've ever had with this website and without CS this would have never been possible .

Meeting countless people on my travels who have come to Tasmania after my recommendation and have really enjoyed it.

After meeting a couch surfer for just a drink on one afternoon in Tasmania a couple months later we travelled SE Asia for a month together.

My best couch surfing experience by far was meeting 30 other people in Hanoi, Vietnam for a meetup to enjoy street BBQ food.

Meeting life long friends who I ended up travelling SEA with, and others who I keep in daily contact with.

And so many more, if you host me we can talk about them. I am so grateful for such a great community to exist.

Interests

Snowboarding when I can, which doesn't happen that often as Tasmania only has one good weekend a year.
Mountain bike riding, walking, hiking, backpacking, hitch hiking, cooking, drinking good beer, drinking good coffee, drinking hot water, meeting new people

Music, Movies & Books

Cooking books, Biographies.
Foreign movies
Hip Hop, Drum & bass, Dubstep, House and pretty much any EDM.

-Visiting Yangoon technical university Architectural department

Teach, Learn, Share

My background is commercial cookery, so eating healthy and cooking when I don't work is a chore. But now I've decided to start eating healthy. I would really like to learn another language since I didn't have the opportunity while I was in high school.
