About Me


to understand something special in everyone.


After travelling around for a while, Im kickin around in melbourne at the moment. i teach singing and playing a few gigs.
I love to meet new people and keep in touch with the old ones, i like to try to make people laugh and Im almost always wearing a smile.
Im really keen to go back to Berlin, NYC, Portugal and Norway to visit some beautiful people i met through c.s


Be lovely to everyone and lovely things will unfold. Stay close with your family and friends always tell someone you care about that you care about them.
Take steps to ensure your own happiness and free your mind and your heart will follow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Im trying to find the right time to propose to my house mates that we become 'hosts.'


When I stayed with my first host Fred, he really enlightened me to what c.s is and represents and I LOVE IT!!!!
I never had the idea that it was -free accomodation- but now i realise this c.c community is alive and crankin. even if im unable to host right now, there is still a lot i can offer to c.sers that visit melbourne.


Music, people, art, movies, the beach and the sun, music. History is great too. Im interested in interesting people, spanish clowns, street people, people with critical minds and something constructive to say.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite music is jazz but I like a lot of different stuff too. In jazz I like Bob Brookmeyer's New Art Orchestra, Dave Douglas, Kate McGarry, Thad Jones Mel Lewis Band. I like Bjork,Led Zeplin, Beatles, Snoop Dogg, latin music, I know its not specific but anything with a cowbell gets me rockin!!! and loads of other stuff. I like a bit of telly, the Sopranos, Family Guy, Aressted Development and Drawn Together. I try to kid myself that im a good reader but actually im not but of the few books ive read I love Papillon, a book about science called The Canon and the Dali Lamas Art of Happiness helped me through some crappy times
