About Me


Connect with people, share space and time. Oh and shred.


Have been describe as hyper active, I have a lot of energy and enjoy peoples company and conversation. Basically I am up for pretty much up for anything!


Stand up for what you believe, be and believe in yourself.... and when its all to much just have a beer or 3 seems to bring on good times.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have met a few couch surfers and share phone numbers, taken then out with my friends shown them around the city of Melbourne best I can. Had some great times made some good friends. Have been surfing on this trip, met some amazing people and now in vancouver trying to take part in the CS community a bit more, now that I am in Vancouver a little more, brickhouse is always interesting and there a good group of CSers to hang out with. Finally I have a couch I can have surfers on and its been great finally being able to share my space with people the same way people did with me. I often head to the weekly meets and leave when the bar closes sometimes you make a new friend otherwise its always good fun.


I have met and entertained couch surfers, Due to flatting arrangements I have not be able to offer a couch. I have been surfing in the states and in canada, and thanks to all those amazing people I am still here otherwise I might not be. I have made some good friends through couch surfing and intend to stay part of this community. I have also travel through the states, mexico, canada and europe meeting with Couch surfers and hanging out.
