About Me

I'm a curious, interested but not necessarily interesting, day dreaming person. New Zealand has been my home since I was two, but now I'm in Korea for a while, where I find myself on bus rides in between Seoul and Pocheon. I've had to defer my studies, but I study (or would be studying) English literature and philosophy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

To meet wacky, interesting people.


Reading, writing, music, art (so general, but this is an impossible box!)... I like trees, I like wine, I like so many things...

Music, Movies & Books

Keeps changing and there's so many, but lately I'm really into The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Dead Weather, Tame Impala, Bic Runga, Blind Pilot, Charlie Freak, The Leers, A.A Bondy, Ty Segall, Sufjan Stevens . . .

/ movies by Michel Gondry, Wes Anderson, Studio Ghibli, and Richard Linklater - and more, always /

Jonathan Safran Foer is probably my favourite author ever (and probz the man of my dreams), and I love so many books, but books I've read recently and loved include The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes, the history of Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution by unknown, untrustworthy author, and Bulibasha by Witi Ihimaera.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Living in Iceland for nine months, and all the exploring there (ice caves, hot streams). Hiking two of the world's greatest hikes- Thorsmork and Tongariro. Food and goods distribution in Surabaya. Too many amazing memories!

Teach, Learn, Share

Do good, be good. Love, learn, stay curious and excited like the lil bee you are!

What I Can Share With Hosts

Conversation and wine?

Countries I've Visited

Australia, England, France, Indonesia, Ireland, Norway, Singapore, Vanuatu

Countries I've Lived In

Iceland, New Zealand, South Korea
