About Me

CURRENT MISSION

create. play music. take photos. surf. skate. travel.

My Boyfriend and I are studying design and live together in a three bedroom townhouse. Unfortunately my flat mates don't want any couchsurfers staying which is such a shame! So I am unable to be your host at this stage.

ABOUT ME

I'm adventurous, cruisey and creative. Love marine life and being outdoors. Most of all I love playing music and I'm always keen to play music with new people. I'm open minded and love meeting new people.

My boyfriend and I live with two other students in mount Victoria, Wellington. We might be able to host but prefer to meet before hand.

PHILOSOPHY

These are a few quotes & sayings I love:

"when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose." Bob Dylan

"I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to." Jimi Hendrix

"You never fail until you stop trying" - Albert Einstein

"A winner is a dreamer who never gives up" - Nelson Mandela.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I learnt to drop in on a vert ramp (skate bowl in Wellington). Sky dived 14,000 feet.Scuba dived with reef sharks at night. Surfed under full moon with a group of girlfriends, probably one of my best surfs ever. :)Swimming and surfing with Dolphins. that is always incredible. Skinny dipping in the sea and at waterfalls.
jumped the fence of a circus to pat the donkeys.won battle of the bands best cover... iggy pop and the stooges search and destroy..I Was in Barcelona when Spain won the FIFA world cup in 2010.Lived in a caravan full of skateboards and surfboards for a week... was amazing. i met the wonderful woman at a full moon party in Barcelona who then showed me how she lived as a squatter in a very beautiful part of the outter city, living a lovely lifestyle. Busking with my ukulele... too many cool outcomes to list from that alone. Worked as a photographer journalist for a magazine straight out of highschool.. I did a 'business trip' to NZ Queenstown for two weeks everything paid for and got paid to do it. bungy jumped the NEVIS, went jet boating, white water rafting, horse riding etc. Got a ride in a hot rod classical car from a stranger i met on the street while i was waiting for a friend.
doubled on the back of a motorcycle for a ride on the coast of spain.
