About Me


Stop getting burnt


After a year in Buenos Aires i am moving on - Rio is the next stop, i plan to work my way very slowly to Austin, Texas and have a cold beer at City Limits festival - that may be next October or the one after that... who knows.

I'm a big music fan and seek out live bands as much as possible - so if anyone needs a band buddy get in touch. I seem to move around quite a bit and have lived in a couple of different countries.

At some point i want to go and live by the sea in Spain or Portugal and bake cakes - so if i come and stay with you in South America please demand both cake and Spanish/Portuguese (though i don't speak any Portuguese yet).


...i'm working that one out ...a neverending process.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted in London and surfed in Uruguay - i also met all sorts of lovely Buenos Aires people when i first arrived in the city.


When you are travelling it's the people you meet along the way that stay with you the most. I've been the lucky recipient of amazing hospitality all over the world. Sharing food, drinks and conversation is the best.
