About Me


to be free and to be happy!


We are a married couple living in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. We run our own business as artists and designers, working from home ad online mostly as well as some travelling around the country at markets and festivals.

I (Jen) have travelled a lot before but Wade is new to travelling/couchsurfing - we took our first overseas trip together last year, visiting India and Malaysia, which was an amazing experience and we can't wait til our next opportunity to go and explore the world together.


To be happy, peaceful and free and do what we can to allow others to be the same.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been a member of CS for a few years now, having hosted many people and also travelled and met some wonderful people overseas.


I have has some wonderful experiences with CS, both as a host and a surfer. It really has enriched my travels and I hope to be able to help many more people on the travels to Australia.


Art, design, music, travel, nature, philosophy, people, books, coffee and experiencing life as much as we can! We share a passion for helping people and animals and run a small business that raises funds for causes we believe in. Most of all, we love each other and feel totally blessed by the time we get to spend together! We are interested in pushing our boundaries and living a life that is rich in experience, people, colour and love! Hope to meet you on the journey!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favourite movie of all time is Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. I also love Nadia, In the Mood for Love, Crouching tiger, Harry Potter and Jason Bourne!

Music - just about anything! I have a particular fondness for Japanese music and weird, contemporary classical music.

Books... again, there are so many... a few favourite authors would be Peter Hoeg, Paulo Coehlo, Murakami...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The best thing I have ever done is marry the most amazing person I have ever met! (I trust he feels the same!!)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a bookbinder so I can show you how to make a book, maybe a travel diary? I like anything creative really and would love to share and learn anything crafty!

Wade is ridiculously well-read and loves to discuss just about anything, but particularly history, theology and philosophy. He also makes excellent coffee to go with it!

We go to a lot of markets on the weekends to sell our art work so if you like markets and seeing what the locals are creating, making and designing, we can show you all the good spots to go!
