About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find myself and like what I find.

ABOUT ME

Born and bred Southamptonian, who still hasn't left the roost, if the roost is Southampton at least. I firmly believe in loving ones neighbours, enemies and treating people as you'd like to be treated. Such a philosophy is the remnants of the time in my life when I was a born again christian. That's over now but that way of thinking remains and I try to practice it whenever I'm able.

Anti consumerist eco geek, but won't preach at you, unless you say the words "preach at me" in which case I kinda have to.

I've studied a variety of subjects over my brief time on this sphere and can easily while the hours away chin wagging, which is different to talking; you basically just wag your chin.

PHILOSOPHY

Love all. Trust a few. Do wrong to know one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Interests

Well I love climbing, although I'm no expert by any means, but really enjoy the challenge and the adrenaline of it.

I love the outdoors in general, getting outside and filling my lungs with fresh air. The office chair was not involved in the evolution of the human race.

I love anything with too wheels. Having been raised on a diet of motorbikes and bicycles I was a malnourished child, but loved bikes.

I love socialising and meeting new people whenever I can, with or without alcohol as an aid; generally without these days to be honest. I also enjoy photography, although I won't be winning any awards any time soon it makes me happy. Theatre, I really enjoy watching live performance and find it beats going to see a movie hands down. I've also done a tiny amount of little martial arts which I find interesting too.

Some of the music I like is:

The Hurts, The Kaiser Chiefs, Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Coldplay, Tracy Chapman, Einaudi, Faithless, Lenny Kravitz, Rage Against The machine, The Prodigy, and Roxette.

I also find ethics interesting and support Amnesty International and Greenpeace and generally think most politicians have got their priorities wrong.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walking over hot coals. Doing a loop the loop in a de Havilland Chipmunk. Sailing around from Oban to Stornoway in Scotland. The experience of going to another land to meet people you don't know and then having an awesome time with them.

Teach, Learn, Share

Love for humanity. I'm pretty good and fixing stuff too.
