About Me

I'm a nice guy. I work in a school and play music in my spare time. I play the bass (electric and upright). I play in a bunch of groups/bands/projects, mostly in London but I have toured a bunch in the past.

I've been in London for a few years now. It's a fantastic city, a world within itself. Which is great but sometimes can make you forget there's a world outside.

I work in a primary school just around the corner from my house. I'm enjoying it but it can be exhausting. London kids are hilarious!

I didn't use couchsurfing for a few years but after a cycling trip I remembered the joys of meeting completely random and like minded people.


I love music, cinema the outdoors.
