About Me


"The more I traveled, the more I realised that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends." - Shirley Maclaine


I'm Australian. So by default, I'm laid back, easy going, I'll enjoy anything from a casual chat over a beer to a hectic night on the town, as long as I'm in good company.

I like meeting people from all over the world, hearing their stories and creating memories.

There is just so much in this world to see and do, more than I can possibly hope to achieve in a lifetime, but by meeting other people who have lived and experienced, I feel that I grow and become a little bit more worldly with each new international friend I make.


Life's too short to be unhappy.
That's how I base my decisions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a rookie couch surfer! Never done it before. Hadn't even heard of it until a few months ago when I became friends with some hosts. Every week they had new surfers and it was great meeting them all, so I'd love to give it a go myself.


Traveling, art, being around interesting and fun people.

Music, Movies, and Books
