About Me


Survive and Enjoy.


Hi, I'm Danny. I'm a PhD student at UCL studying how humans see colour, and working out how to use this knowledge to make better lighting for museums and galleries.

I generally come as one half of a double act with https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/alicek2409


I love exploring new places and meeting new faces, doing new things and learning new things!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, being hosted and playing ultimate frisbee!


Summer 2009 - First couchsurfing experience in the UK.
Spring 2010 - hugely successful CS powered trip around Europe! Met some amazing people and can't wait to go back.
Autumn 2011 and Spring 2012- Hosting AMundo!
Summer 2012 - a few short stints as hosts
2013 - Uni took over my life...
2014 - Hopefully getting back into the swing of things!
2016 - How did that happen?!


Colour/Vision, photography, people watching, Water/beach sports, Ultimate frisbee, Good vegetarian food (cooking and/or eating), Economics, Playing cards, star/cloud watching, exploring!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like movies, music AND books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swam in the sunset in South Wales with my friends,
Walked on a dying bonfire,
Piloted a glider at 10000ft,

I love doing things that I know I shall remember.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach many a card game...
I can teach you what all the buttons mean on your camera... (so long as it's not Nikon - witchcraft)
A tiny little bit of Spanish...
Most things to do with computing... (don't ask me how it works but I can show you how to do it!)
Ultimate frisbee...
