About Me


Surround myself with great people from all over the world


For the first time i have set my availability to "Maybe Accepting" because of an overwhelming amount of requests. If you can't read my profile, tell me what you like about my presentation, give me an idea of what kind of person you are and open up a little I probably won't be able to host you. We are a community house that relies on everyone's input and are looking for team players that want to be a part of something big.


Im a fun loving person who can't get enough of all the great things in life.

After some extensive traveling, I have decided to come back home, back to my roots, back to my family, back to where the sun and every living thing will kill you. Hopefully all the wisdom I have gained from from my travels will protect me...Sometimes I feel invincible and can be a little reckless. I will admit i have few weaknesses but I can't tell you, because then... I will have to kill you. I don't take anything too serious, except for things like sports, games and having a good time and even then, I don't take anything too serious. I believe in the universe and also believe we should take advantage of the opportunities we have in this life. Here comes the cliche sentence "I'm a traveler by nature and love to meet fun and open minded humans". I stay true to myself and I know who I am, which I am very comfortable with. I can be quite weird at times but I find weird people fascinating so my weirdness will never change. I am constantly working on bettering myself and working on my weaknesses including, Kryptonite, Chicken, Butter and adventure time.
I guess now... i will have to kill you. Come stay on my couch?

One more thing. CrunchyTown Facebook group



Give as much as you can.

Build a bridge and get over it.

Exercise your mind and your body regularly.

Surround yourself with beautiful people and things that make you happy.

Life is too short to be walking in circles.

Do what makes you happy.

Learn to accept death and all the things that scare you.

Be aware of what impact you have on the people around you, keep the "making people happy" to "making people not happy" ratio abouve 50:1 For example if you throw a party and there are 3 neighbours that are not happy make sure to invite at least 150 people.

Give more hugs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host a house that has hosted many of couch surfers from all over and because our house is so diverse in culture, backgrounds, beliefs and languages, collectively we have a lot to share .We greet our couch surfers with a hug and farewell with an extended hug.


I couch surfed in the US for two years. This was before I knew about

I hosted for a year to make up for all my bumming.

After hosting for years I figured that I earned enough couchsurfing credit to see how this website worked from the couchsurfing side and it was awesome. Good experiences, unforgettable people and the local insight advantage.


I love the outdoors and adventuring, Im into lots of board sports including Surfing, Snowboarding and Skating. Sports like soccer are fun. Im into games, all types of games, drinking games!!, foosball and Ping pong. Climbing things is fun too. I like to create and design, Painting, drawing, digital art, Dj'ing at house parties and Traveling

Music, Movies, and Books

Almost every time i try watch a movie or read a book I fall asleep. I like books and movies but i usually don't make it to the end. I LOVE MUSIC. I like all music that sounds good and fits with the mood. I'm into chilled electric sounds and fun to dance to music. Flume, Bonobo, disclosure, LCD Soundsystem,C2C, Odeza, Bassnectar,Chinese man.... blah blah blah but i also enjoy the classics, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyde... you know the jam.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

9000 mile road trip around the USA in 3weeks, 6000 kms around Europe twice. Traveled away from Aussie land for 7 years, Cliff drops,Bungie jumping, flips, rope swings, swam with wild dolphins. I attended festivals like Sasquatch, Shambhala, Cochella and Burning man and met 100's of great people that i will never forget and made my travels a never ending party. BUT the ONE most amazing thing i've done would have to be creating CrunchyTown. Check my "about my home" and check my references for more details about CrunchyTown

Teach, Learn, Share

I grew up in a very large family.
I like to play around with mixing and and making playlists if you're familiar with 8tracks (an awesome site for discovering new music) i have a profile and just started posting mixes. Check it out if you're into dance, chill-out, electronic chillwave

Also when i lived in Vancouver in "the BAtcaVE" I put together this video that shows our house enjoying the sunny outdoors and beer
