About Me


Hi! I design stage and close up illusions for magicians. While not trying to work out a new way to levitate or read minds I study philosophy at university in Scotland and take photographs for circuses.

I love photography, new people, new experiences, and the unexpected.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Stayed with some incredible guys and girls in Padova last month - thanks for giving us an amazing first couchsurfing experience! Next time - fire breathing lessons! Oh, and apologies to your cat for borrowing his couch for the night : )
