About Me


Escape this Yorkshire rain and find somewhere sunny to live


Hello! I’m a perpetual student, i've been in England far too long finishing my PhD. I like it here but my mind is usually abroad somewhere.

I’m open minded, curious and like to explore. Laid back about most things, more of an introvert than extrovert but am always interested in meeting people and enjoy good conversation.

I love to photograph things. I like aimless wanders with my camera. I'm fairly passionate about meditation. Creativity and music mean a lot to me; as do trees, puns and spiced snacks.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Getting lost in the backstreets of Varanasi

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook a good egg and make a good cup of tea. I can also show you how to solve a Rubiks cube if you so wish

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in a small house just outside the centre of Sheffield, close to parks and nice bakeries. We occasionally have a spare room and often a couch. Message me and I can let you know their availability.
