About Me


to stop talking, I only want to sing.


I like sharing stories, speculating on ridiculous hypotheticals and going on adventures.

I live fairly much day to day, I don't worry about the future, and only occasionally think to myself, 'oh my god, 30 years old and what have you done?'


The world is a good place to spend some time.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I hitchhike, and when I'm driving I pick up hitchhikers. I ask people for help when I need help, and I help people when they ask me. usahitchhiker.blogspot.com


I once hosted a crazy traveller who was carrying an enormous bag of survival gear and a 5kg crystal. he was the last guest at our party and it became apparent that he had nowhere to stay.

A few months later I met some guys at a cafe in Flensburg and breakfast with strangers turned into hanging out a few days with new friends.

I joined CS about a year after that on a trip in the USA and had great experiences being hosted by various wonderful people.

I returned to Oz. Once i had a roof over my head, i started to host people and have had great times hosting and surfing since then.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

it was midnight in the north of norway the scenery was all craggy rocks and sheep me and my girlfriend were eating nachos watching the sun scoop at the horizon.

Teach, Learn, Share

The guitar is a rhythm instrument That's why you make the rhythms with your right, or should i say dominant, hand. so the trick is: learn one chord. Em for example your left hand doesn't move. then with your right hand: you make rhythms. but you've gotta get into it start singing if necessary. the main thing is to feel the music and let it out.
