About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring Asia before I become a student again

ABOUT ME

Currently in between work and starting a Masters in September back in London. I'm a passionate musician (guitarist, singer, producer), environmentalist (worked for 2.5 years for a Sustainable Development NGO) and educator (taught English in Switzerland for the past 2 years).

PHILOSOPHY

We're living on a planet of finite resources, which are unfairly distributed. I defer to Ghandi: "The world has enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed"

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Music, Movies, and Books

too many to list. My music taste is pretty broad: post/math-rock, glitch-hop. I'm listening to a lot of electronic artists with female vocalists recently e.g. Samaris.

I read a mix of non-fiction, sci-fi. Recently I've been suckered into the Game of Thrones books, hard to resist.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

the grand canyon, table mountain, sugar loaf..
