About Me


To see as much of the world and experience as many cultures as is possible


I've been kind of living the lifestyle of a nomadic teacher lately. I choose a different country each year and live there and try and assimilate into the culture as much as possible. I'm a relaxed, easy-going person who just wants to experience as much of the world as I can and meet as many interesting new people as I can while I do.


I love to write, this is really my main interest, I write mostly fiction but also about the people I meet and the places that I am. I've recently taken up skiing and snowboarding as well and I'm soon to undertake a motorbike trip with a friend from Mongolia to Ireland. I really just want to take on any adventures that I can and have as many new and exciting experiences that I can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the giant golden Buddha statue in Ulaanbaatar, I'm an atheist but it was really one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.
Scootering around the rocky sand hill roads of a Thai island with no idea how to ride a scooter, exhilarating yet terrifying.
