About Me


Record a folk album


I am a fun loving kiwi. I absolutely LOVE music (playing listening writing music) love to meet new people and experience new cultures. Love geting outdoors and camping. I love sports especially rugby and surfing. Love food both cooking and eating and love a good drink to compliment that food. Passionate my Homeland and my people. I always enjoy a good laugh... at anything


What goes around comes around, It won't be that far, Rock and Roll Will never die, When in Rome, its better to burn out than to fade away

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I spread the CS love. I donate to the site to keep this worthy cause running. I like to live the CS mantra of bringing people together regardless of ethnicity or where they live. I respect others and their homes and hope for the same in return.


Been rocking the CS around the USA and Canada,and Scotland, Europe, I have hosted in my Van, met some absolutely amazing people, some of the coolest people Ive met to date have been from CS, strangers that you felt youve known for years. Cant wait to meet more CSers from hosting here in NZ


Music, Sports and anything Outdoors. I love meeting new people especially in their home towns or their home countries. Love to live the way that locals do. Food and Wine is always a hit with me. Love laughing, and again, love music
