About Me

I have been travelling on and off since October 2004, when I left Tasmania and moved to London in order to travel around the UK and Europe.

I ended up living in London for four years and Hamburg for a year before I returned to Australia, where I lived in Melbourne for three years, in between trips.

I have been lucky enough to see quite a bit of Europe and some of South East Asia, as well as a six-month trip through South America and a four-month trip in Central America. I have also really enjoyed exploring the USA, returning several times since first visiting back in 2013.

I am currently living in Alajuala, Costa Rica and would be more than happy to meet up with other CouchSurfers for a beer or coffee.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Since joining CouchSurfing in 2008, I have stayed with and met some great people in Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Austria, Slovenia, France, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Singapore, Thailand, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.

I also met quite a few CouchSurfers for coffee/beers when I was back in Australia between December 2009 and June 2012, as well as hosting Dominik from Germany and Sirli from Estonia.

Dominik and I also ended up travelling together for 2 months through Argentina and Chile, almost 3 years after hosting him in Hobart.
