About Me

Just another kiwi guy travelling around, trying to climb as many rocks as I can and meet as many awesome people as I can before I go back home. I love to rock climb and am keen on meeting up with anyone who wants to head out climbing, especially bouldering. Also keen for skiing and adventures that challenge me and take me to different places.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the idea of not just visiting a physical location while travelling but building up a community and creating connections wherever I go. I'd love to meet and share with as many people on my travels as I can as it's more often the people you remember than the place ;)


Rock climbing and more specifically bouldering is my main passion and most of energy and thought goes into this but I like to balance it out with other passions like music (I love to play with others) and cooking delicious food.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really do have an expansive music taste but here are some bands I like anyway so you get an idea: Muse, Submotion Orchestra, Shapeshifter, Gojira, Satie, Gorecki, Rage Against The Machine, Artic Monkeys, Opiuo, Primus, Pink Floyd, Massive Attack, London Grammar, John Butler Trio, Enter Shikari, Dream Theater, Dirtyphonics, Death Grips, Carpenter Brut, Bon Iver, Andrew Bayer, Deadmau5.

Some of my favourite books include: The Hitch Hikers Guide To the Galaxy, The Little Prince, Flow, Ready Player One and untold training and self-help books. I like books that I learn from.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Kayaking with whales

- Scaled huge cliff faces

- Played music to hundreds of people
- Competed in national competitions in Fencing, Bouldering and Trials biking
- Danced the night away

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play the drums, rock climb, fix electronics & computers, ride a unicycle, cook and fix bikes. I love learning new skills from other people.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I will always try to share what I have, most of which is knowledge and they say that knowledge is power so maybe I can share some power ;) I can cook and I give pretty good hugs too.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, New Zealand
