About Me


To update my CS location, without having to re-verify my identity


I've lived in the Isle of Man, Oxford, London, have travelled around Europe, and now am living in Beijing. No wait, not any more - I'm in Australia. Or back in the UK. Actually, right now, I'm in South East Asia. And I'm thinking of moving to India. Why isn't it easier to change my CS location??

I love the countryside, the beach, mountains, and geography in general - but seem to spend a lot of time in cities these days also - and nothing wrong with that!

I'm a scientist at heart, but also love the arts - particularly music (listening and performing).



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have hosted more than surfed - so I have some karma saved up, right?

I also love performing music or listening to others - so if you sing, play, hum, play the spoons, whatever - come and jam with me!


I had an account last year, but am unable to access it now so here's a new one. Big shout out to the people I hosted while living in London - Eva and Julia from Budapest and busking Klaus from Brighton!


Kayaking, scrambling, hiking, camping, science, programming, playing guitar and jamming with strangers, getting lost, getting found, high life, night life, pond life, extra-terrestrial life. Listening to my inner voice and arguing with it when it's wrong.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Kayaking with basking sharks HAS to be up there, and the best thing was, it happened within a few miles of my home-town! Such majesty, such power, and such gentle creatures... And now I can add snorkelling with sea turtles. Water sports with sea creatures is an awesome way of spending time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm down with science, maths and IT to varying extents, so can show you how to create your own website, solve Schroedinger's equations for a two dimensional quantum well, or explain the Big Bang! (ask Ricardo! - this actually came up in conversation..)
