About Me


After a year travelling South America I'm looking to be in Australia for a while (8 months, maybe longer). I have worked lined up that will finance some exploring of this enormous playground! I want to get involved in some short film making and art stuff.


I'm a warm hearted, open minded, love swapping stories, starry skies and a good sound system. I spent 2012 travelling south from Mexico to Chile and now I'm in Australia for a while to work and play. I love meeting new people and finding out about new cultures and ways of living. I enjoy being around creativity, like big open spaces and happy people.


Live with love and love living

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've never couch surfed using the website, it always just happens!


Love like you've never been hurt, work like you don't need the money, Dance like no ones watching, and, well there's more to that but we'll leave it there for now. I love music, live and recorded, durdy digital bass lines to salsa, jazz, folk and reggae. Just don't ask me to listen to too much techno or death metal. I love dancing but that doesn't mean I'm that good at it! Creativity really turns me on - thearte, art, dance, abstract humour (Eddie Izzard anyone?), lateral thinking and smart solutions to day to day problems. When I'm at home I like to own a big wooden chopping board and a good set of knives - cooking and eating could easily take up most of my life if there wasn't so much else to see and do! I like being healthy and dabble in a mix of football, swimming, yoga, scuba diving and other outdoorsy stuff.
