About Me

I sometimes miss messages on here so if you want to get in contact feel free to look up my business (The Nomadic Masseur) and find me that way.

If you are looking for work I have enough connections to get you something.


Cause a ripple effect on the world, one person at a time.


I am a nomadic philosopher.

After spending many of my years in the military I came to realise what freedom truly meant to me. For me freedom comes in the form of diversity. Different cultures, races, religions, and everything else it is to be human.

I spend my time now questioning everything I do in order to contemplate why I do it in the first place. Through this contemplation I have been writing novels to express my thoughts in an unintrusive way to others.

I have the outlook on life that I will go where I need to and those that welcome me get the gift of my wisdom should they choose to accept it.


I'm an erudite thinker. I look at life from as many different angles as possible to get a greater understanding of what it truly means to be human.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The world we live in creates barriers which block us to its full potential. I believe that people should not be limited in their ability to experience this world because of their political environment or socioeconomic situation. So I open my home and my heart to those with the drive to explore, to create, to take risks, to question, and to connect with humanity. Let us create the world we want to live in for ourselves, because the governments sure aren't doing it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I ate a 3 course meal in a castle watching the sun set over the Alps with no plan for the rest of my life.

I patted wild horses next to a mountain top lake in Bulgaria.

I have flown sideways over mountainous islands in the gunners seat of military helicopters on operations.

I have stood on the edge of a cliff in the middle of nowhere looking out at clear blue ocean.

I have dived with magnificent creatures and admired their ocean world.

I have explored cities wrought with architecture and history.

I have marched through streets while the footpaths were flooded with cheering people.

I have been naked in public with hundreds of other people multiple times.

I have performed improvised hip-hop under a bridge with the local cypher crew.

I have gazed up at the night sky in places with no light pollution and enjoyed it's magnificent beauty.

I competed in the 2019 European massage championship and 2023 World Massage Championship.

I spent almost a year fighting the government to have the rights of a disabled man protected, I ended up taking the Department of Justice to court and won.

I have built a thriving business and now employ many people.

I have ventured into my own heart and found who I truly want to be.
