About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy my 2 favorite things in life... Music and Conversation..

ABOUT ME

Hi! Hmm well I grew up in a very calm small town in south England (Devon, where about the only thing the police would be called out for would be to free a cat up a tree or something..)

I´ve always had a fascination with characters and people from an early age.. which bought me to drama and acting.. This dominated a large part of my life as a kid..I was bought up by my mother who I think I could describe as a bit of a hippy (which is something that I once struggled to appreciate but now I love to embrace!) on a small council estate backed by rolling hills and the beauty that is the south of England :)

I think all this bought me up to be a fairly laid back guy with a fun and quirk outlook to life (and humour).

My 2 favourite things in life are music and conversation.. I´m also an avid explorer when it comes to different cultures and outlooks.. which I think is reflected in all the places I´ve travelled to..

PHILOSOPHY

I'm not typically religious but a combination of a solid conscience, a hippish upbringing, a desire to be liked and a good old English politeness gives me a gentle calm philosophy, which is now guided by really thinking about and truly seeking out the things I enjoy and have always wanted to do.. (dancing being one of the big ones of late..)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Other than missing the last bus home and staying at a friends house... I´m new to couch surfing...

Interests

Music is a huge thing in my life, and because of that I´ll usually be seen lumbering my guitar around.. I used to play in a band in London (we were awful! ha ha) but now I like to tinker around with my own stuff..

After travelling to Israel in 2000 it opened my eyes to the world (and its many troubles..) this has led a deep interest in current affairs (I'd dig into a glass of wine and a deep discussion anytime :) )

As a result of my alternative upbringing I´m often drawn to alternative lifestyles, (I´m a vegetarian) and keen to meet people who have a different outlook on life..

After living and working in London for the last 4 years, I recently tried to approach life in a slightly different way and try to ´broaden my horizons´..In order to begin doing constructive things I took up salsa dancing, Spanish and meditation... These are all new pursuits I´m always looking to expand...

Music, Movies & Books

As music plays a big part in my life I´ve got very discernable tastes ranging from...

MUSIC ´The Libertines´, babyshambles (how can you love one and not the other?!), Nirvana, Wille Nelson (how can you miss ´On The Road Again´!) , Chet Baker (´Let´s get Lost´ is fantastic, James Taylor and Nick Drake, The Strokes, Chilli Peppers, Jack Johnson, Smashing Pumpkins ..

TV Shows The Sopranos, Lost, Star Trek, Babylon 5, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Prince Valent, X-Men (cartoon version), Batman cartoon, Round the twist, Heartbreak High, Prison Break, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show

Films Good will Hunting, The Mission, Indy Jones, Preaching to the perverted, Blade Runner, City of God...

I seem to struggle reading fiction so generally I´m into non-fiction however I´m just cracking into ´On the Road´ by Jack Kerouac.. My friends have also recently encouraged me to put pen to paper and write poems (which I don't claim to be a master at but I enjoy any form of creation)

Vid Games Spectrum - Dizzy! Amiga - Monkey Island 1 & 2, super cars 2, speedball, chaos engine, settlers, theme park PC - Command & Conquer, Half life, Counter Strike Snes - Mario Kart!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seen.. hmm Iguaçu falls in Argentina was pretty stunning

Done.. Singing in front of hundreds of strangers in theatre..

Teach, Learn, Share

Well I´m a dab hand with the computers ( I did webdesign & ecommerce for 6 years) so any computer help I can give.. no worries.. I´m also thrifty with guitars so if you fancy a jam... bring it on!

I might if persuaded be able to rummage up some tasty English vegetarian meals too..
