About Me


see what there is to see


I am a self professed Gentlemen of Leisure, however I've been finding that work tends to get in the way of this noble pursuit. I often travel out of town with my job, so may not always be around, but if I am in town I look forward to being a helpful host...
When it comes to visiting others, I can remember quite clearly the night I had to sleep in the back of an abandoned Russian Lada on a Panamanian peninsula in the middle of nowehere - so I am very grateful for the hospitality and do what I can to stay out of the way and minimize my footprint (unless I am crashing with my sister, in which case I try to be as high maintenance as she is when she comes to stay with me...).


Live to create opportunity for others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My travels are fairly extensive so I am happy to provide tips or suggestions regarding any of the places I have been.


Guess it has been a while, since I updated this part of my profile, probably no longer a rookie... I have surfed and offered surfing - I look forward to the day when I can do more of it more often...
