About Me


To circumnavigate the globe! Explore South America, return to Europe, chill in Thailand


Back in Canberra again after my big trip to Europe, Japan and Thailand. Already wanting to go again but I might have to wait until Xmas 2009. :( I did send out couchsurfing requests but didn't have much luck catching up with people on my trip (bit disappointing really). Still happy to meet up with people coming to Canberra, especially if you like beer and enjoy chatting about movies.


I'm a bit of a nerdy technology early adopter. I really like seeing how tech changes society, usually for the better. I'm a politics junkie so living in Canberra is good for me. Cycling is what I like to do, but Canberra can get very cold for half the year.

Music, Movies, and Books

Where do I start? At the moment I'm listening to The Pixies, Weezer, Darren Hanlon, Sarah Blasko. I'm reading travel guides to Europe, New Scientist and William Gibson novels and I'm watching Lost, Scrubs and BSG.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The last time I was overseas I worked for five months doing casual jobs in Edinburgh and had a ball. The weirdest job I had was as the Charmin' Toilet Roll Bear, which basically involved dressing in a giant promotional bear suit and terrorising supermarket shoppers.
