About Me


enjoy life, make plans


Hi I'm Tim!

I love travelling, snowboarding, biking, driving, learning, working, photography, community and friends.

I used to live in Melbourne, Australia, but now I live in Jersey, Channel Islands, with my partner Natasha.

Natasha and I travel and adventure together pretty much all the time, you can find her profile at couchsurfing.com/people/natasha.bairstow


Love people, love life, respect others, have fun, and question what you believe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mainly been a surfer around the world and have hosted twice in Melbourne


My couch-surfing experience has had a profound influence in my life!
Keeping in contact with friends I have made has immeasurably changed the way I view the world

Music, Movies, and Books

Bon Iver, Gotye, Boy and Bear, Mumford and Sons, Daft Punk, Radiohead, The Paper Kites, Chemical Brothers, Elbow, Miike Snow, Diplo, Flume.
I like too many movies. Fight Club, Inception, Wall-E, Up, all pretty great. If it's above a 7.2 on IMDB, I'm probably gonna love it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've shared tears with strangers, slept in airports for days, experienced camaraderie with fellow passengers, and been welcomed in by people out of sheer generosity and awesomeness.

Teach, Learn, Share

If it's technology related, I can probably teach you how it works.
I work as a software developer, so I know quite an extensive amount about programming.
I can also attempt to teach you to snowboard :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I actually really enjoy vacuuming and cleaning vacuums - if you hate vacuuming, then we could make a great team ;)
