About Me


To cultivate a beautiful edible garden, spend more amongst nature, personify my home and create beautiful things


I'm almost always smiling and I have a real thirst for going new places, it could even be as simple as a new street in a city I've lived or a corner of a park I haven't set foot in before. I'm not religious but I do believe everything and everyone has a common connection. Generally I eat a plant based diet with some fish but rarely meat, but you can eat what you want if you stay with me. I equally enjoy being alone and spending time with people; I love to talk but at the same time the silence doesn't always have to be filled. Always looking to learn new things


Nothing is more important than right now.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting diverse people and have currently stayed with two hosts an participated in a couple of hangouts. I'm now back at home in Australia and am excited to host some surfers!


Even though I've been a member for 7 years, I've only recently successfully surfed in Helsinki, Turku and Stockholm. They were all good experiences

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walked the Camino de Santiago. It was genuinely a very positive turning point in my life

Teach, Learn, Share

If you have things to teach me about gardening, survival, art, Spanish, surfing, or any special skills I'd be eternally grateful

What I Can Share with Hosts

An enormous smile and stories, and maybe I could draw you!
