About Me

In short: A tall, cheery fellow who likes to travel and doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty. I’m interested in stuff. Doing stuff, seeing stuff…

I enjoy nature, biking, hiking, eating, music, learning and not knowing when to say no. Currently living in Doha. Looking to meet new people, experience different lifestyles and share my own. Happy to soak up some local expertise... Food is always a good place to start!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To see the world and what it has to offer and to meet new people.


Food, conversation, music and sport and everything in between. I enjoy going to gigs, going on bike rides/hikes, visiting new places and eating new food. A combination of biking, eating and music would be ideal...
Aside from the latter, climbing mountains, hiking hills, BBQs on beaches, BBQs in backyards, swimming, maps, food, reading, conversation, food, fun things, food, your interests and the unexpected

What I Can Share with Hosts

I’m a qualified high school teacher, as well as TEFL trained, so would be happy to help out with any tutoring needs. I’ll cook up a meal, wash up and get stuck in to any chores that need doing. I'm also happy to share music, recipes, conversation and tea!
