About Me


Back in Aus after an epic overseas adventure


I love adventure and meeting new people.. I have a job that requires me to work hard, so I am determined to make the most of my spare time. I'm always on the move, often heading down the coast for a surf, hanging out with friends and family, etc. so it may be hard to catch me but I'll try my best to meet and help you anyway I can. I could show you some of the cooler and lesser known places in this amazing area, a great night out, or a lift between Geelong and Torquay, or Melbourne.


Enjoy the journey of life, make the most of your time here, live in the moment, and make a difference (to the world and people in it).

Music, Movies, and Books

I appreciate any quality film or comedy feature, but actually I don't find a lot of time for sitting on the couch watching tv or movies these days. My music tastes are wide and varied and these days I'm often tuned into Triple J to hear the latest hits. I'm loving Flume, Kid Cudy, Calvin Harris, Hermitude, Rufus, Cut Copy, Arctic Monkeys, Boy & Bear, Fat Freddys Drop, and always acoustic chilled music like Ben Harper, The Beautiful girls, Jack Johnson, coldplay, Michael Franti etc; also Hip Hop like De La Soul, Scribe, Pete Rock and CL smooth, etc; Classic bands like the Killers, chilli peppers, pearl jam, powderfinger, The strokes, Radiohead, Sublime; also Lounge music; some house; the list goes on...
Good recent book read = Shantaram
