About Me


Enjoy life!


I am an easy-going, open-minded person. I care about my friends and am loyal to them. I speak what's on my mind and hope that others will do the same. I love meeting interesting people and having good, involving conversations.


The golden rule: treat others as you would like to be treated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to CS but would very much like to get involved. I am going travling around Europe at the end of July 2012. When I return from that trip I would love to start host other CS users!


As I said above, I am new to CS, but am keen to get involved.


I live for music. I can't go for more than a few hours without it. I play in a couple of bands and am trying to start another one up. I play guitar, bass, piano, and I sing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went backpacking around Europe by myself for the first time in 2010. Prior to that, I hadn;t even been on a plane. I found it an amazing experience, and have been itching to get back out there ever since. Finally in summer 2012, I am in a position to do so.

I have also had many incredible live music experiences over the years, both from playing and spectating. I'm sure we could talk about them in person.
