About Me


To get within dashing distance of the Himalayas before I hit the big Three Zero!


1. I hate filling in these boxes because although I am really a very interesting person, I never know what to say!
2. I'm nice
3. I'm patient
4. I'm sure I'll add more to this description later...


I live my life to know other people and places, and take what wisdom I can from them. I don't live to harm my self-worth with nicotine, alcohol or drugs, but to treat it with respect and love. It's got to last me a long time, after all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Probably mostly a surfer and hanger-outer.

I'm really, really eager to find some local friends in GZ and HK. I'd like to play the tourist with them sometimes, or go round for a family dinner from time to time, or just relax with a book in a cafe.

Working in an international school means I get pretty sick of foreign company, and I know there are local GZ-ers out there who'd like the opporunity to meet non-Chinese friends. I'd love to help people with their English, and for local friends to help me with my Cantonese. I want to feel a sense of belonging, because the lonliness can get a bit suffocating now and then.




Anything interesting. I am a self-professed geek.
