About Me

I'm a 80 year old man who loves hosting Couchsurfers and have had around 600 guests and have loved every minute!

I've been in Wellington since 2018 and know about a few places to visit.

I value providing a warm, comfortable, and welcoming environment. I'm based in a suburb called Tawa, it's a great neighbourhood with a village feel and easy access to the Kapiti coast and the city.

I'm always glad to meet new friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like meeting and sharing things with other people.

It's great to learn about different people's lives and tell them about what it's like to live in New Zealand.
It's also amazing to hear about what others have done, all over the world.

Feel free to call me if you need a place to stay 0211322313

Music, Movies, and Books

I love country and old time music. I enjoy a wide range of books but generally enjoy a good mystery or action novel.
I watch a wide genre of movies including foreign films, action, and romcoms.
One of my favorite films is The Notebook and one of my favourite actors is John Wayne.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled to the US to rebuild an old house. While there I visited the Grand Canyon but thought Bryce Canyon was far more impessive!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know how to make things. I used to be a carpenter and cabinet maker.
I have learned how to fix and upgrade just about anything!
