About Me


Having a go at everything and enjoying every minute of it


I was born in the states but have lived in NZ since I was young. I love being active and taking on new challenges. I am excited by travel, love to dance, sometimes just need to run myself ragged playing football, and I am always smiling.


Being open to opportunity makes life a fun ride

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing helped me travel the world and now that I'm briefly settled I am keeping my travel buzz by hosting :)


I am interested in a huge range of stuff and so I love meeting new people that introduce me to new things. I teach, perform and love to dance (mainly lindy hop and blues), enjoy most sports (want to do more rock climbing, wakeboarding, snowboarding and kiteboarding!), photography, music (listening and playing)...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching the sun rise over the leaning tower of Pisa after a sleepless night of homeless folk and shift sleeping in train stations.

And spending Christmas morning on Kauai hanging with a sea turtle and drinking sangria
