About Me


Quit my job and travel from coast to coast across the USA- done!


Born in Cornwall which is an excellent place to grow up and build tree houses and have BB gun wars in the woods, not so good when you get to about 16.

Moved to Oxford for university which is an amazing city and I spent more time playing music and enjoying the scene, while wishing I had done a more creative degree.

After my degree I went travelling around Europe. Since then I have tried to work then travel then work then travel ect... I just got back from surfing across America, next I'm moving to Paris..... I now live in Paris.... Had an amazing time living there, I'm now back in Oxford living in a house with friends and band mates!


Live fast died dignified and old!

Its all character building

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted but only a few so feel I need to do more especially if your American!


I surfed across the USA it was of course AmAzing!


I love listening to and making music, I like reading.

I love cooking, last night I made gnocchi. Actually i would love to cook for anyone who can host me!

Im not the most sporty person but I do like to be active I play squash and I also regularly go mountain boarding.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: my favourite genres are 50/60s garage bands, Punk, and psychedelic shoegaze type stuff.

Like: Brian Jonestone Massacre, The Modern Lovers, The Velvet Underground, Ramones, The Sonics, The Monks, Buddy Holly, The Velvet Underground, The Butthole Surfer.

Films: Amelie, I'm a cyborg but that's OK, anything by Wed Anderson

Books: mainly biographies - The dirt, Wouldn't it be nice, A room full of mirrors.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've loved playing live in a band and have played some great venues and supported fantastic bands. I've had the most fun through doing that than anything else.

Simple things amaze me like a good film/book/song or an interesting/heroic news story. Scenery is always impressive I love looking out at the sea...blah!

oh and Surfed across America!

Teach, Learn, Share

I play guitar, bass, and drums I'm not too good but will happily share what skills I have. I love to jam and share ideas.

cooking and baking, I like feeding people, not in some im a feeder weird way though.

I can also mountain Board (like snowboarding but with wheels down hills)
