About Me

I'm a pretty easy going guy who loves to do off the beaten track type of things wherever I go, hence I decided to quit my job as an engineer in Hong Kong to learn to be an outdoor instructor here in NZ.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To help those that are travelling on a tight budget but also because those people are the most interesting to spend time with.


All things outdoors but also creature comforts. I love gear and most things techy.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love music... Rock (all sorts), metal, drum n bass, jazz, classical and pretty much anything except for modern hip hop and some of the weirder indie stuff.
I have watched so many movies and am keen to watch many more. Some of my favourites are V for Vendetta, Sunshine, His Girl Friday. I'll watch nearly anything unless it's too arty / contemporary. Tree of Life was ridiculous.
Books I've been reading less of lately which is sad, but always keen for a good read.
