About Me


My current goal is to keep exploring this beautiful planet and keep meeting interesting people to share adventures with.

I enjoy all sorts of things: travelling, meeting people, sport, hiking, cooking, learning, trying new things, relaxing and just having fun.

I'm still trying to adjust to the real world after having travelled the world for 2 years without working.

My blog


Have fun, continually learn and progress in all aspects of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I first joined Couchsurfing after returning from a trip to Europe in 2011. It was the typical Amsterdam, Oktberfest, Prague trip with a group of friends. I had a lot of fun but didn't really experience the culture or meet the people of those countries. Hosting and travelling with Couchsurfing changed all of that.


I have hosted many people and surfed through Europe, South America and North America. I have also organised events in Aus (including a BBQ that 65 CSers attended) and around the world (an NYE party in Barcelona).

I'm probably more interested in making road trips or exploring national parks. I've just moved to Melbourne so feel free to message me if you have any places that you want to explore, I might be keen.

Music, Movies, and Books

All music

I like comedy/action movies but unpredictable movies with unexpected twists are best.
