About Me


To find animal chin. Have you seen him?


I have a big old ginger beard and it is currently one of my prized possessions, I believe I'm a laid back person with a good sense of humor, who is easy going and always up for an adventure. I'm from a small country town in Australia that is located next to the ocean. I enjoy meeting new people, exploring, hiking, reading, skateboarding and the odd beer or 2. I have recently returned from a 3 years trip which sore me in Europe for 22 months before hitch hiking back to Australia through Asia taking 14 months, I plan to spend a few weeks at home before moving onto Tasmania for some farm/ fruit picking work.



What goes around, comes around.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing my travels and sense of adventure with others.

I like to spend my time exploring cities and the country, reading, meeting new people, creating things with my hands and learning new things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

That I grew to trust people, to give up the idea that every person is bad. It's more the other way around, 99% of us are kind people while there are just 1% out there doing their worst.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people how to bake bread, cook pancakes and share my experiences from time on the road.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I hope to share something with every person I come across, either that be a memory, moment or experince as I'm sure I will have learnt something new from each person I come across during my travels.
