About Me


To fill my weeks with happyness and great people around me


My partner Chiquita and I have a house in Wodonga North East Victoria, having moved here late in 2011 from Melbourne. I am a Recruiter.

I grew up in the Fiji Islands and New Zealand where my dad ran an ice cream factory. I have travelled to many countries and also hitch-hiked many years ago though UK. Chiq is a farm girl from this area, but recently lived in Melbourne and taught Business.

We enjoy going to dance parties, festivals and clubs, and have danced and witnessed most of the World's top DJs including Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk and Above & Beyond. So if you enjoy this music, we can probably assist you in knowing what is going on in Melbourne.

Our other passions are movies, wine, whisky, cigars, fitness, rugby union and Mountain Biking. We train most mornings at home, doing high intensity exercises.


Stay young through health and music and laughter

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Please contact me to see if we are in a position to give you a bed. We both work fulltime, so will be working Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm. We do often have friends staying overnight with us, so apologies if we cannot host you.

We have a double bed in a separate guest room with private bathroom facilities. We also have two single beds in the grand-kids room.


I have slept in caves in Greece, beaches in Spain, and on couches with friends of friends all over the world. I back-packed through the UK and NZ many years ago.


dance music, wine, whisky, mountain biking, travel, movies, UK comedies and dramas (like Breaking Bad and Dexter), health, fitness.

We have a nice vegetable garden, two cats and a swimming pool. Our perfect weekend is probably fitness training early, then doing Garage Sales and grabbing some fresh bread and coffee, gardening and tidying the house, then a mountain bike ride, swimming, drinking wine and relaxing in the afternoon!
