About Me


I am on a mission of learning and education. I am passionate about helping people get off the hamster wheel by exploring sustainability from housing to food production, energy to community. Sharing my learnings satisfies my soul.


I'm all about helping people (myself included) to live a better life through conscious choices in their day to day lives.
Sometimes this means teaching, other times listening, all of the time with an open heart, mind and eyes. You may find me at any point immersed in environmental debate, good company or soil.
I enjoy all of these things immensely and when I'm not travelling, educating myself or gardening you can probably find me on a mountain or a beach.
Sharing insight into what makes life worth living for each of us is a great way to pass the time, why not stop and have a chat?


Counter to what we are constantly assured, I believe that each and every decision of each and every person really matters. We make our reality and through the positive thoughts and actions of each person we can make this Earth an absolute paradise. We have work to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing a couch when I have one, occupying the couches of others when I don't :)
I love to learn and share the knowledge and resources I have so I bring that too. :)


There is nothing better than sharing love, energy, food and perspective with other people. That is what makes every couchsurfing experience a delight!
