About Me

Hey all,

I'm from Australia but I'm living in London while I complete my masters. Who knows what I'll end up doing afterwards!

I like all sorts of things from learning new musical instruments to writing, reading and learning new languages. Of course, i also like travelling and meeting new and interesting people from all over the place.

I have a blog, I will get around to updating in shortly at:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've CSed throughout Russia, Europe, USA, Hong Kong, Canada and Thailand and enjoyed every second of it.

Also, if you want to surf at my place, make sure you've gone to some effort to make a CS profile and write a short individual message to me as copy and pasted requests are pretty easy to pick :)

Music is a big part of me. I like all sorts of stuff from old-school rock, blues-roots, jazz, funk, electro, classical depending on my mood.
