About Me


I'm about to move to Poznan to teach English. My accommodation is still being sorted - I think I'm going to have some space to accommodate a couchsurfer, but in the immediate future I would just like to find people to socialise with, help me familiarise myself with the city and maybe play some music with!


I think they would say that I'm a really great guy, but that I'm crazy, and leave things to the last minute! Something about being away from home brings out the best in me.


I believe that I can learn from anyone, and maybe people can learn from me too. It's a cliché but I believe strangers are just friends you haven't met yet.

I'm an atheist but I identify with certain aspects of Buddhism, so I'm interested in learning more from people who practice meditation and vipassana.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet locals to learn from each other's cultures. My two main passions are music and language, but any new learning experience is a positive one - cooking, nature, the arts, spirituality, anything!


I love music (both playing and watching), sport (p&w), cooking, eating out, photography, creativity...that's about it!
