About Me


Mission is to learn more about myself by learning from others


I've been told a lot recently that I'm always smiling. I enjoy the company of others, being in the outdoors, and getting around on my bicycle. People would probably describe me as quiet yet friendly.


Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery today is a gift, that's why it is called the present

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have now had the privilege of being hosted by two wonderful hosts, attending a meetup in Athens and finding a housemate in Wellington, thanks CS


Some of my hobbies include singing in the local all-comers community choir,exploring the tracks and trails around where I live, playing field hockey and initiating banter on our team Facebook page, running along the waterfront as well as practicing yoga.

Love Actually

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of my most surreal moments was when I went to my friends 3 day wedding in India and danced in the street as the groom arrived by horse, carrying a coconut and accompanied by a band, incredible. I was also really struck by the income inequality in India. Biking down the "world's most dangerous road" in Bolivia was amazing, such an awesome experience- the views, the freedom of being on the bike and the difference in temperatures between the freezing top of the road and the stinking hot bottom of the road was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmm I know a bit of yoga, running and nutrition. I would love to learn more about meditation of any kind.
