About Me


To meet interesting people and go on adventures. If we both come up with an idea the other hasn't thought of mischief can be managed :D


I've lived in Melbourne, Australia for most of my life but was born in the US to Sri Lankan parents and feel that I can claim Portuguese heritage with my last name :)

I studied finance for eight years and invested money for the Australian government. I also founded an events-based website in Melbourne ( Feel free to check it out for fun things to do around town.

In my spare time I'm usually reviewing an event of some sort or at a bar, house party, singing power ballads or on a road trip...


"It's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man has stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust, sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms and the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be among those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Roosevelt

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I tend to organise events...I suspect well over 50 by now .

Bar crawls, free chocolate nights, tours of the botanical gardens, free beer events, making scarecrows, concerts in parks etc


I've been participating in the Melbourne community for a few years now. Like most couchsurfers my experiences have been nothing but favourable.


I'm generally fascinated with luck and people...
