About Me


Enjoy life to the fullest!!!


My name is Reece and I'm currently living in Melbourne, Australia. I recently moved to Melbourne from a small city in the tropical north of Australia known as Darwin, which I had lived in for the past 15 years or so. And before you ask, no I don't wrestle with crocodiles.

After living and working in Melbourne for the last six months whilst contemplating life in general, I have decided that it would be in my best interests to travel for as long as I can before settling. My first destination is Vancouver, BC, what happens from there is anyones guess.

I have an Australian electrical license and have recently completed a barman course so I'm hoping I'll be able to find work without too much strain (anyone with suggestions or info about possible work please let me know. thanks)

I'm an open minded individual and will pretty much just cruise along and play it all by ear. I love to meet new people, find out about great experiences and swap stories.


I live to do exactly that, live. Not work myself into the ground to get to where society deems it is necessary for me to be. No white picket fences or keeping up with the Jones' here. haha.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Lets be honest, at this point I'm hoping to be on the receiving end of some very generous hospitality and kindness.
I will eventually settle and that will be the time for me to reciprocate the great generosity and kindness that I have received during my travels.


At the moment I am working pretty hard on getting some decent songs down with my guitar so if I get stuck anywhere I can just busk my way home, haha, music is with out a doubt my greatest passion. I love to go out and check out any live original music i can find (as long as its not country). haha.

Music, Movies, and Books

Films: Anything Guy Ritchie or Quentin Tarantino has produced is absolute gold.
Music: Some of what I'm listening to now is; Foals, the maccabees, mute math, thrice, city and colour, he is legend, hermitude and of monsters and men.

I'm reading 'how to work your way around the world' at the moment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw The Strokes live at a festival in Queensland two years ago, without a doubt, the best live music experience I have ever had.
Looking out from the Cape Byron lighthouse on a clear day. The Cape Byron lighthouse being the most eastern point of Australia. Looking out into the pacific ocean and its never-ending nebula of white caps with the occasional whale breaking the surface, amazing!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm an electrician so I guess I could teach anyone who is interested.
I've been playing guitar for the best part of 15 years now but I've never really had any formal tuition so to learn anything musical would be awesome.
