About Me


Riding bikes in Berlin


I am originally from New Zealand and have lived in Berlin for the last 4 years. I love riding bicycles, make delicious cakes, enjoy games of back-yard cricket and am fascinated by art and architecture. I am currently learning Deutsch, working as a freelance and illustrator and have started a new illustration website called Illustrators Illustrated. I'm getting pretty excited about the onset of spring and getting some plants sprouting in our patch of dirt in our community garden.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, meet, drink, talk, explore and laugh with all kinds of people through CS. Now I have a fixed home I am really excited about hosting and meeting new people.


Couchsurfing in Uruguay and Brazil, meeting new people at group events, eating, talking, biking, and watching football.

Update: I have now also read the punishment half. Turns out its quite grim.
