About Me


Summer in OZ , creating, travelng and frolliking etc.etc...


I am flexible with my time and love to hang out and make new friends.. In the summer I travel around Victoria and Australia a lot, going on road trips with friends and many music festivals -camping in the bush etc..
I am into music (composing/playing);
Alternative health / medicine ;
Electronics / Engineering / technology ;
Anything weird wacky unusual unexplained strange secret, etc etc...;
Business combining some or all of the above, ;) ..
The world is full of amazing things and possibilities.
and that is a vast conversation topic haha ;-)

I do not drink or smoke and i prefer vegetarian food but still i m pretty flexible..

It takes a genuine curious and open-minded person to have a good conversation with me and sometimes it might be hard to shut me up... haha.
if you touch the right strings you might find yourself having conversations with me like you never had before...

issalllGoood mate !

beep.."I am sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right question..." beep..
(maybe you know where that's from ?) ;)

During the warmer months me and my crew travel to various outdoor music festivals around Australia and we run some fun projects like a Live Music Jamming/Chill Space, etc.. We create a groovy community home in the bush for a few days about twice per month on average. My couch surfers usually are welcome to come with us to experience these adventures which are awesome amount of fun !

I can not host more than 1 person at the moment. Also i will not accept just 1 or 2 night requests.. - I believe hotels are more appropriate for the short stays...
Longer stay might be welcome if you are a good company and happy to help me with my simple chores etc :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have walked in zig-zags and circles through all off the Shanghai in one night untill 8 in the morning..
maybe 50 km in total. Got a blister and could not walk far for the next few days , hehe...

Teach, Learn, Share

well, how can I put it ?..
there is a whole other! universe out there which most people have absolutely no clue about .. it's kinda similar to the "matrix idea"... and many are waking up to it now...
I have been learning about all things -BEYOND and OUTSIDE the real "Matrix" for the last 18 years... more - you will have to ask... :)

What I Can Share with Hosts
