About Me

I'm a 22 year old Aussie writer, currently travelling around the USA while on my semester abroad at Arizona State University.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm always up for meeting cool people with cool stories about cool stuff. I'm also poor.

Music, Movies, and Books

My attention span is way too short for movies but my favourite TV shows are Archer, Mad Men, BoJack Horseman, Friends and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Favourite books include Harry Potter (always), 1984, Eragon, Shantaram and Lolita.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The last 12 months have been the craziest of my life. I swam with pink dolphins in the Amazon river, caught (and ate) piranhas, trekked into and out of the world's third deepest canyon, learned to surf in Bali, paddle-boarded around the Burj Al Arab, biked down Death Road in Bolivia, climbed Machu Picchu, went sand-boarding in a desert oasis, learned to be a foreign correspondent in India and whitewater rafted down Peruvian river rapids. It's been a great year.

Teach, Learn, Share

There's no better way to know how to travel than by talking to people. As a writer I am constantly seeking inspiration and stories, as well as tips for awesome stuff to do in every area I visit.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm always up for a chat, a wine, a meal and sharing travel yarns.
