About Me

Amiable, easy-going character who loves to explore. Sometimes very quiet, but other times super chatty - very much depends on topic and mood! I love discussion and the most interesting conversations are when people can disagree in good humour and still stay friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to make new friends around the world and get an authentic experience of their culture, and share my stories too. On top of that, I love food and trying different cuisines is definitely my favourite thing when it comes to traveling.

I haven't yet been fortunate enough to host, however I did couch surf in Madrid, Spain with my friend Sian and had an awesome time!


food, music, cooking, yoga, dogs/animals in general

I studied Chemistry at university but long story short didn't feel all that passionate about it, as interesting and challenging as it was. I work freelance now as a makeup artist, and it is a strange job when you think about it because I'm literally being paid to put creams and powders on people's faces with fancy brushes- but I absolutely love it.

I'm not hugely into sports, never have been - but always admire people who are. I like to keep fit by doing yoga and walking, sometimes swimming but it's just too cold in London!
