About Me


Just moved to Lima setting in and exploring the city


I'm from Scotland but I've been living in Asia for several years, just moved to Lima

I'm a teacher and a writer (Send me a message if you want a free ebook copy). I write spiritual science fiction. Which kind of sums me up well: I'm half hippy half geek -- I like meditation and Star Trek. I teach computing as way of making to survive.


I know nothing

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have host and stayed with a few people. Feel free to ask if you need a place.


I've stayed with people in different places in Asia and had a few friends come stay with me in China and Indonesia. I've also stay with people in South America and met up with people in different countries.


Writing, running, cycling, general exploring, computer games and usual geeky stuff.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books:Paradigms, Bardo, The truth about faeries, The PM (yes these are mine).
Also like: Herman Hesse and Terry Prattchet

Films:The perks of being a wallflower, V for Vendetta, Fight club, Eternal sunshine of the spotlessment

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seen a lot of the world. Wrote some books. Climbed some mountains. Dived. I think India was the place I liked to travel to most. China or Indonesia have been the best places to live. - lets see what Lima has to offer.
