About Me


I am a violinist interested in cooking, socialising, playing music and generally having fun. Particularly into gypsy jazz and classical but up for jamming regardless.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Would love some people to come to Manchester, experience the city, have a good time, bring some instruments etc etc.


Went on a couchsurfing/hitchhiking trip from Berlin back to England in the summer. Busked with a guitarist for the whole trip and had a great time with really hospitable and brilliant people everywhere we stopped.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Played my violin on the side of a road in Holland- it worked! Eventually someone gave us a lift!

I played to a woman who had suffered a stroke but a friend knew what her favourite piece on the violin was. As soon as I started playing it, her whole face lit up and she became so animated. I will never forget the impact of that.
