About Me


To enjoy life - currently back in school for Renewable Energy, specialising in Ocean Energy. Will be living in Central England until Feb, 2015, then moving to Lisbon at least until June - update: now working in Sweden on wave energy project ..... Looking like I may be here awhile


Restless! Easy to get along with, but has a hard time staying in the same place very long.

Love the constant cycle of study something new then work in that field for a few years until it gets repetitive, then quit - float and travel for awhile - then study something else.


Life is short, live every day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted and surfed in the past. Renting a room at the moment so can't host currently. However, I would say I've used CS primarily to meet up with fellow travelers when on the road ...... would like to get more involved in CS community here in Lisbon.


Sailing, surfing, snowboarding, reading ...... anything outside and not on a computer.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to mention. I can't stand too much time on a computer, but I could read books all day long.

I named the sailboat 'Falkor' ..... I'll buy first round for anyone who knows the movie reference

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Northern lights in Alaska, Machu Picu hike in Peru ...... anything outside the usual
