About Me


To stop living like there's always going to be a tomorrow.


I've made the switch to Be Welcome!

And I can make people laugh until they fall out of their chair (simple: watch me play a shoot-em-up video game...).


Love is mostly an action, people can make it so hollow with words.

I don't have to be anywhere, so why not be everywhere?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently I can't host, but have both hosted and surfed in the past.


Hosting, being hosted, crashing on various couches, bringing home strays, occasional event, jams.


I like music.
I like art.
I like books.
I like people.
I like to laugh.
I like to learn.
I like socks.
I like soup.
I like climbing trees.
I like playing guitar at work.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cape Reinga. For anyone who loves the ocean, you must get yourself there.

It's where two oceans meet and the scenery is fantastic. you can hear the waves crashing onto the cliffs down below, so far below and the waves are so loud. I could've spent all day staring out at the ocean.

And once you've been you'll see why climbing halfway down the hill is not such a great idea (mostly because you have to get back UP the hill)

And if you count another 'amazing' thing (amazingly stupid), I've jumped off a cliff in the dark.... accidentally.... sometimes taking a flying leap over a fence is not such a good idea.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you probably anything you want to know about music. How to bake bread from scratch. I can sew stuff... basically I'm the perfect house-wife, except for the whole being a house-wife part of it. Swapping massaging skills.

I'll learn me anything you care to teach.
