About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Dont live to work, work to live and live to travel and travel til you stop living!

ABOUT ME

I'm a pretty simple fella, I grew up in a small country town by the coast, but love the big city life just as much as I do relaxing out in sticks. I'm totally addicted to travelling. Nothing better than landing in a new place and experiencing a new culture, meeting new people and exploring places I've not been before (or revisiting the ones I loved) I'm also a standup comic. Just dont ask me to tell you a joke and we will get on fine! But if I happen to be in your part of the world doing shows, come along and say gday. I'd be glad to have a beer afterwards. This is how you can see what I'm doing workwise.

Happy Travels

PHILOSOPHY

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow. If it makes you happy and it doesn't hurt anyone, do it and don't worry what people think of you. You will be a step closer to happiness.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd surfed couches for many years now but only of mates I know or friends of friends, but never affiliated with this site, so I decided to join to expand the network. I work on the road a lot but when I do find a base I have been able to return the thanks by hosting when I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

lost my couchsurfing virginity in style, picked up at the airport, yoga class and mexican dinner then midnight swimming in a backyard pool followed by a great sleep in my own room with ensuite and a cooked breakfast. The next night I shared the cushions of a couch with 3 others! This sums up couchsurfing, always a unique experience. Embrace it.

Interests

travelling. does that sound familiar anyone? Learning new languages, meeting people from different parts of the world and sharing experiences. comedy, live music, the great outdoors, sunny days and a few beers and bbq's with good mates.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: comedy, suspense, and home movies, doco's are fantastic. Planet Earth, Blue Planet. Music: anything live, festivals are amazing. dont put my blinkers on when it comes to music, any style can be great at the right time. Books: Maps (love picturing where I'm going next!) Bill Bryson stuff, he's great. biographies and real stories, nothing better than the real thing.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I hiked up an active Volcano in Guatemala, absolutely awesome! check out the pic in my pictures. I like to think there are so many more great things to do and see that the best hasn't happened yet.

Teach, Learn, Share

Be kind, life's too short to be a prick. Get over it, any issues you've got are so small compared to the bigger picture. Don't compare yourself to others, there are, is and always will be people better off and worse than you, whether it be career, looks, money, life. who cares!? Just enjoy yourself and all will be good.
