About Me


To do more things that scare me



I've just moved to Valencia to teach English and experience Spanish culture.

I'm a bit of a serial hobbyist and love learning new things, seeing new places and meeting new people.
I'm a creative person and enjoy making things. I also enjoy doing outdoor activities and being in groups of people but also value chill out time and being on my own. I would say I am pretty easy going and very open to new experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I spent some time couchsurfing in America in 2011 and Japan in 2014 and was amazed how friendly and open the people I met were. I loved being shown around and how excited people were to share where they lived.


I am a very creative person and enjoy all different types of art, craft and design.

I really enjoy being outdoors and seeing big natural landscapes or people watching in busy cities.
I've also done a few long cycle trips and am very happy splashing around in any kind of body water.
