About Me


Travel across Canada to get to P.E.I then England...


I'm a 27 year old guy who got a little bit disillusioned with his previous occupation. I worked as a lawyer in NZ for 3 and a half years and then decided enough was enough, so resigned and decided to travel the world for a few years. I'm a big sportsman so ended up traveling through South East Asia for 5 months before moving to Canada for a change of lifestyle. Skiing and golfing for a year has not satisfied so I'm going to try and continue on the same path in the U.K. Wish me luck!


I live my life pretty simply right now, currently single so only me to worry about. As long as I can feed myself and play sports from time to time I'm happy. Seeing the sunshine definitely helps!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment I'm a living a transient life, so have no couch to offer but I'm really keen to get amongst the CS lifestyle across Canada and into the UK. Once I get settled I'll happily be a part of the CS scheme to let people stay for a while. Sounds like fun!


Little to none, however did flat with a keen couch surfer back in NZ for a while who had people visit from time to time.


Sports, Music, traveling, socialising, anything to do with water (lakes or the coast. Fun, relaxed living in general.
