To experience, create, discover, unearth, and be surprised. In no particular order...
I have always had a passion for finding a unique angle in life. Music and the visual arts (photography and design) are 2 of my strongest passions. The best 6 months of life was working as a photographer in Whistler Canada (a winter wonderland) where I lived with 5 good friends and met many more. I always strive for seeing life in other people's eyes from all cultures to broaden my understanding of the world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I wish to share my experiences of the world with others. I want to see a city through a local's eyes, to see how people around the world live their day to day lives. I want to push my understand of how I and you can live day to day.
I have hosted 4 different groups of people from France, USA, Denmark and Germany. Everytime has been great fun and they tend to teach me things about my life and Melbourne.
