Why I'm on Couchsurfing


ever since moving out of my parents house in 2003 i've had friends and guests stay over, anything from one night to about 3 months. i think i'm a good host. i make real coffee, good eggs and a nice gin and tonic. as a guest i'm pretty good i guess. i'm clean and tidy, always do the washing up. i enjoy hanging out and having a good chat but also have no problem doing my own thing if my house-mate needs their own space, just depends on who i'm living with i guess.


music, art, film, theatre, comedy, dance etc... if it's good it's good. i'm extremely open minded but at the same time very particular about what I like. i know that sounds like a contradiction in terms, but it will make sense if you get to know me... also, i like to play a bit of football and tennis and i like to go for a jog and a swim here and there.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

swimming with dolphins in the gulf of mexico was pretty cool. getting attacked by jellyfish at the same time wasn't so cool. DJing at Fabric in London alongside Dillnja and Grooverider was fun, to put it mildy. Travelling around South America and Cuba was amazing - in particular cycling down death road and exploring the jungle and pampas in Bolivia were both unforgettable experiences.

Teach, Learn, Share

i'm pretty well skilled in music composition, production and djing so there are definitely things in those areas i'd be more than happy to pass on to anyone who's interested. also, i've got a very eclectic taste in music and so can offer great recommendations whatever style of music you're into. every now and again i'm introduced to a band i've never heard of and fall in love with their music. it's a great feeling so it's nice to share it with other people.
