About Me

experiencing and appreciating what the world has to offer then one day use this to make it a better place


I'm a 31 year old human being who is currently working for a couple of incredible non-profit organisations, raising money and having a great time in life. I'm someone who loves meeting new people, exploring new places, going for adventures and has massive aspirations in traveling the world and experiencing what it has to offer.

Will be traveling around Europe from the 3rd of September so will be on the hunt for awesome couch surfing hosts to stay with.


all people and living things are valuable, humor is wonderful, hope is real and powerful. The world is AMAZING beyond comprehension

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted people for a number of years in Wellington but am now traveling myself.

Would love for you to host me if you can!


I've hosted many people at my old house in NZ and have stayed with a few people as well.


I'm passionate about surfing, hiking, meeting people, being active in the community, cooking, doing lots of fun arty things, i love experiencing nature and going on adventures where ever possible.

I also really enjoy making a bit of music, listening to it, and going to watch it at gigs and whatnot. live.
