About Me


To live life to the fullest. No regrets


Im very outgoing, honest, ambitious and like to have fun. I love to travel and experience new cultures.


When backpacking, the best plan is to have no plan. Embrace life with open eyes and an open mind and take advantage of every wonderful thing that gets thrown your way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that couchsurfing is a great way to meet locals and learn about their culture! I have done quite a bit of travelling and surfing and I love exchanging stories :)


I love being outside in the sunshine. I am more attracted to warm weather versus cold. I dont ski, snowboard, or ice skate but always willing to try it once. I enjoy being a beach bum! I like to play tennis, rollerblade, watch movies, go out for a few drinks with my friends, and listen to some great live bands. I love being outside and hiking! Being in touch with nature is a beautiful feeling

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Walked the portion of the Great Wall of China.
2. I spent a month in Australia. Spent 2 weeks in the Outback building Rabbit Proof Fences. The Bilbies and Bandicoots are an endangered species and I loved being a part of helping them to survive. For the last 2 weeks, I travelled all along the east coast of the Country. Walking through the rainforest and walking on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world was an unforgettable experience.
3. Just completed a 2 year around the world backpack (2012-2014)..NZ->OZ->ASIA->EUROPE->PERU. Im ready for more adventures
