About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Seeing the world though local eyes

ABOUT ME

If i knew my life was to go on for Eternity I would live in every city in the world for at least 6 months!! Unfortunately we are not that lucky so i have to make do by seeing a city through the eyes of someone who has lived there. Yes I do want to take snaps of those tourist landmarks but I also want to see that underground band, wander through a marketplace, watching a local game, have a beverage at somebodies usual lair and hit up a house party where the only language I understand is laughter!!!

It took me 8 years after I left school, and three university degrees to work out what I wanted to do... teach!! And after 2 and a half years of a perfect existance, great job, great colleagues, great surroundings my itchy feet forced me to leave it all behind and once again roam the world!!

Since May '08 I have been seeing the world the best way I can until I ran out of money and rolled the dice to see where Id end up... The dice said Vienna!! Then the Dice said Washington D.C and now Im back in Australia and ready to roll the dice again!!!

PHILOSOPHY

A ship is safe in Port.. But thats not What ships are built for...

and

All those who wander are not lost!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Attend CS parties infrequently in Vienna, surf when I can help out surfers when I can ...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed and hundreds of couches all over the world and had many people crash with me in Oz. But that was all mates of mates, or mates of mates of mates.. before finding out about this organised, internet based couch surfing, cant see much difference though.. We are all mates!!

Interests

Sport- you name it ill watch, coach, teach, gamble on or participate in it!! Live music - I dont care what they are saying if it has real drums and a guitar ill probablly like it

Good Conversation - I grew up being encourage to have `Heated debates´ and love mixing it up on any topic over a few cold beverages!!

Music, Movies & Books

Way to many to list..ask me ill tell you..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once again way to many things to choose one...3 Olympic games has to rate up there, but then so does a random house party in the back streets of Dresden... this is more a topic for conversation rather than bragging list...

Teach, Learn, Share

let me get back to you on that one....
