About Me


Not to forget...


I feel there is no better way to pass time other than in the presence of good company and in the pursuit of a creative art..... I love exploring all forms of design and the influence of music on it. I have come to Finland to study wood design use my hands more in designing and to learn from the beautiful Finnish landscape and the people who live within.
I am always looking for a new perspective!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Still new to this experience, but hope to find a larger place to be able to host.


Classical music (particularly romantic period) supplemented with some rock.
I enjoying just making things, using your hands in a craft is a very gratifying sensation.
Geographically I seem to drawn in by South-East Asia and plan to spend a good few years there in the future.

.....and Dogs, they are a man's best friends, plus dog walkers are some of the friendliest people you will meet.
