I am an energetic out going person who enjoys learning and experiencing new things especially meeting new and interesting people. I love travelling and am happiest when i am backpacking around the globe experiencing new countries and cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had amazing experiences so far couchsurfing peoples couches from all over the world and will definately host wen i get a place of my own but till then am very happy to meet people for a drink, laugh, chat and good time when i am free.


I have had over 20 of the most amazing couchsurfing experiences throughout parts of Europe and South America, meeting some of the most awesome people i have ever met and can say i have made lots of lifetime friends.


I am a Marine Biologist so i love the ocean and its amazing array of life. I am a very keen scuba diver and enjoy just being in the water. I surf, body board, mountain bike ride, rock climb, play soccer and really enjoy anything active that gets my heart pumpin. I also enjoy just chillin out on the beach watchin the waves while reading a good book. I am happy doing anything at all really as long as it is enjoyable.
