About Me


To enjoy life in the short time we have.


I love music, film, meeting people, travelling, cycling and partying. I am outgoing, friendly and I am always willing to learn new things. I am interested in people and like to heard their stories.


Everyday above ground is a good day... Find something constructive, productive or enjoyable to do and get on with it.. You are your own master.. So do as you like.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been living in South Korea for 5 years, the last two years of which I have spent living in Seoul. I have done a little surfing here and there in Asia but still haven't hosted. I don't use this much, but I am very happy with my experiences so far.


I have surfed many a couch in my time, and met some amazing folks. I hope to continue this practice ^^


I play music in my free time. I am a guitar player and play with a couple of bands in the Seoul area. I spend more time on music than anything else, but I am also interested in all of the arts. I studied film, and I enjoy visiting galleries of both classical and modern art.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I enjoy being on a bicycle, using it as a mode of transport and as a facilitator of travel and adventure. I have cycled the length and Breadth of South Korea, and spend some time cycling briefly in Cambodia. The temples of Angkor Watt were breath taking,and exploring the vast and impressive site by bicycle on a hot summers day was a fantastic memory I will hold forever.
