About Me


Guys are also welcome to surf with me as well as girls! Being a DOC Conservation Ranger, Run! Cycle! Fly-fish! Hunt! Enjoy every second of this Amazing Life of mine! :D Catch Fish, Practise Yoga


Higgledee piggledee POP

I'm the kind of guy that just can't stop

Eating rhymes and spending times

With Cool People who like

Higgledee and Piggledee and POP.

Just to say something different: ... I am close-minded, difficult-going, I hate travels and people in general ;) But if you still dare to contact me I can be a great surfer/host if I want to ...

I love cycle tourists! As I want to do this myself. I almost surely host you guys!!! Go the 2 wheeled travellers!!!

I'm really busy, job with the Department of Conservation - DOC, as a Ranger.However even if I can't host you I may be available to meet you for a cup of herbal tea/beer/smoothie in Westport. OR a fishing/cycling trip on my spare bike!

I've already done this a few times. If we've got stuff in common, then this could be great fun! I would like to connect with people who are:

interested in going fly fishing,

or practising Spanish/German/travel tales of Latin America

or healing swaps

or shamanism rituals

or massage swaps

or cycle touring

or spoken-word poetry performing or enjoying, specifically.

Or cooking us tasty dinners as I'm a hopeless cook!

Peace :) *

And I've got advice on the local scene... and can invite travelling poets and lovers of the spoken word to our Slam Poetry Party-Jam-Pizza Party Nights!


The best years of my life! :D

Follow Your Bliss.

Do what you Love and the Money Will Follow.

I am my own Best Teacher.

Where attention Goes, Energy Flows

you are what you allow yourself to be


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I organised the weekly CS meetup in Queenstown New Zealand!
To Meet other Beautiful travellers and share stories and laughs, keep myself inspired that the world is a beautiful place! give people travel tips for New Zealand and Australia.
Host when I can, and surf too sometimes,

You can POTENTIALLY CS in our guest room. We have a single bed in it, and another single mattress. I have to run it by Liane first so please don't be offended if we say no.
