About Me

I'm a post-graduate student based in London, always up for activities in the city or for escaping London when I can! Very interested in tech, and an aspiring data scientist.

I love all kinds of exploration - chasing sunshine, conquering cities, nature, underwater, arts, nightlife, food, history and what's happening in the world today.

I'm a knowledge sponge - I can never learn enough and I'm always, always curious.
The kind of person who will go down the shady-looking path, just to see what's on the other end.

Polaroid pictures of the places and the people I meet are my best souvenirs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to get to know the places I go - and best way is from the people living there.

I want to hear from people who have lived different experiences, and who still share a love of learning new things from others. What do you do? How did you get to where you are? And how do you like it, here?

If you like cooking or baking, let me lend a hand. I've been told I make good desserts! And I looooove baking.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once did a hike with a friend in South Africa. The situation got difficult... and we had to call 911!

It's a long story so I can tell you about it in person.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can teach you about the funny customs we have in the UK, some things about the other countries I've been to... or how to make tiramisu. If we get desperate I can even teach you some chemistry, haha.

Learn: Tell me where the best places to eat nearby are! I hope to learn about the local area & culture where you are, and about your own travel experiences.
If you know about the current affairs / political situation / history of the country as well, I can never know enough.

Share: A game of 2 truths, 1 lie. Any funny snacks I've brought from the last place I've been. Let's grab a drink or a meal.

What I Can Share with Hosts

More than happy to treat you to dinner as a thank you.

I can replace the things I use in the house, or pick up some things you need - soap, paper, etc.
I can also bring you something from the last place I've been / something from the UK.

Keen to cook together, if that's something you like guests helping with!
