About Me


To figure out some way to earn a living doing something I love while still having the time to get away and see some cool stuff! Pretty tricky....


I love getting out in the hills or over to the coast. I'm into Mountain biking, Glentress and Innerliethen are close by, and do a bit of surfing down at Dunbar. Managed to get away from work and Scotland last year for nearly 5 months and already planning the next escape.


Money's useless if you don't have free time to spend it in. Work smart, save time, do more!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been showing folk around Edinburgh and met tons of new people from the site on my last visit to Rome. I've also met up with the Edinburgh group, great people!
