About Me

I am a recently qualifed architect from the United Kingdom. I spent the last 8 years living in london working for an archiecture practice specialising in the conservation of historic buildings and now am excited about visiting many of the ancient structures of both pre and post colonial South America. In between this time I finished my architecture degree in oxford.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am taking a sabatical to travel south america with my girlfriend, learn another language, meet new people and experience some different cultures. We want to couch surf so we can meet people who can give us a better insight to the area and local cultures, as well as give us more opportunity to speak spanish


In my spare time I like climbing, running an generally being active. I enjoy watching all sports, even if im not very good at playing many of them. Both my girlfriend and l love food, cooking, eating, and generally trying new things. We alo love to socialise and going to a party when there is the opportunity!
