About Me


To be the world's greatest.


I'm 25, love music, travelling and food. I live in Shoreditch in East London where there are a lot of galleries, bars, events, pop-ups and is generally a pretty cool place to be (think Williamsburg, New York.) It is one of the most vibrant parts of the city and there's always something going on. I work at a nearby Mexican restaurant as head chef as well as doing some fun supper clubs and innovative event work.


Eat, drink and be merry!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and host, I think this is the best way to make the most of travelling. I feel there is a lot more to couchsurfing, however, that just a free place to stay, it's about cultural exchange. Cooking a meal while you're here or bringing a goofy item particular to your home would be very much appreciated. I live together and host with my wonderful girlfriend Sarra


I have both surfed and hosted quite a bit and try to help out as many people as i can especially when they're in a pinch.

I've stayed in cities, mountains near lakes and rivers, everybody has something beautiful to offer in some way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Too many things really, either hitch-hiking down highway 1 in California and sleeping in the forests of Big Sur or not speaking a word of spanish and accidentally staying in a hotel in Mexico City which was mostly used for prostitution.
