About Me


Likes sport and outdoors. Quiet and easy going. I've travelled quite a few times but always on sports trips and only for short trips.


I try not to get to worried by small things. And how you treat people is how they will treat you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm starting by trying to meet people outside of hostels.


None. Trying it out for the first time.


I participate in a lot of outdoor activities. Things like camping and trekking, snorkelling and diving. When I travel I prefer to do active things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walking the Inca trail to Machu Pichu. Crawling though the Cu Chi tunnels. Running up Mt Kaukau in Wellington New Zealand and getting a perfect view of parts of the North and South Islands.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to practice Spanish. I'm trying to learn but I'm still awful. I can teach English. Other things I know about are Taekwondo and diving/snorkeling.
