About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To seek out new life, new civilisations.... to boldly handstand where no one has handstanded before! Lol

ABOUT ME

I used to be a youth worker, but gave up to travel and study circus. I've now settled down in Melbourne to study paramedicine.
So.. about me.
I'm a bit nerdy in some respects (c'mon! Circus folk are just nerds with physical hobbies)
I love chocolate and food in general (except onion). I enjoy cooking and being cooked for but I feel I am still at the start of my 'foodies journey'.
One minute I'll be sticking a spoon up my nose, and the next I'll be talking about physics. I love xkcd, oglaf and am definitely addicted to red wine,.chocolate and Facebook.
I like action and interaction, playing, teaching, learning. I think a discussion is not just for debating who knows more, but about exploring concepts and growing together.
I welcome creative people interested in learning and walking their own paths into my house.
My house is gay friendly, vegetarian friendly, whatever the hell else you are friendly, as long as you don't try to push your beliefs onto anyone else.
In my surfers, I look for an understanding of couchsurfing and how it is an exchange of culture, company and so much more.
I also like people who do the dishes :)

PHILOSOPHY

You're only crazy if you think you're not.
Do unto others as you would have done unto you.
The day you stop learning, you start dying.
You are what you eat.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been a couch surfing host formally and informally, and always enjoy the company. Except for that one time someone moved my furniture...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had lots of couch surfers both from this website and people I have met at festivals. So far, my experiences of these people have been great.

Interests

Circus: Aerials, acrobatics, juggling, fire twirling, contact staff, contact juggling, Fei Cha, GERMAN WHEEL!
Music: All forms of trance, alternative, anything groovy
Festivals: Where you can chill
Languages: I really want to learn french and/or spanish.
Nutrition and behavioural health
Alternative lifestyles
paramedicine

Music, Movies & Books

Books:
The way of the peaceful warrior by Dan Millman
Lord of the rings
Anything by David Eddings
The journal entries of Kenneth Shardik
Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
His Dark Materials
Nelson Mandella, Lance Armstrong and Anthony Keidis biographies

Music:
Happy doof, uplifting trance, I have a heavier side that encompasses things like Tool, my classic rock such as the Foo fighters, and a definite soft spot for the beautiful. Think Sigur Ros, Lamb etc.

I am also trying to play the piano and guitar :)
Anyone who wants to provide piano lessons is ALWAYS welcome.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was flooded in at a festival for 6 days in 2008, and chilled out to music while the SES choppered us in supplies.
I lived and trained with the Chinese Acrobats in Beijing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always happy to share my circus skills. I can juggle, fire twirl staffs and poi, play in basic acrobalance and am learning Fei Cha. I really want to learn German Wheel, pole dancing, ballet, french and spanish.
