About Me


to find out what my dream is and live it!


I love working at and visiting theme parks! rollercoasters and jumping off things make me feel warm and fuzzy inside :) Just got back from my eurotrip, now I'm having a blast in the States, I like long walks on the beach, candle lit dinners.. travel and cookies!


I like to leave everyone and everything just a little better than when I got there :) and someone told me I should "choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Met some Couch Surfers making a short film and playing frisbee on the gold coast :) Can't wait to meet and party with more amazing people all over the world!


All good in the hood! Currently having a blast in Los Angeles going from couch to couch! Vegas next baby!


Random adventures and not having a plan, hanging out with and making new friends, parties and social events, climbing trees and buildings and rocks, philosophy and solving the world's problems, pretending life is like the movies and filming it, going faster, jumping out of perfectly good aeroplanes, getting paid to fall over :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Have you stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon? It made me all tingly... possibly due to running, wet snow and nearly falling in :-O

Oh and I rescued a man trapped in a rolled hummer once...

Teach, Learn, Share

I got this awesome shirt in New Zealand that said: "To be old and wise you must first be young and stupid" so I bought 15 of them. Might have 1 left if you want to borrow it :)
