About Me


Go everywhere, experience everything, waste no time


Relatively new in Berlin, having lived until last September in Stockholm, Sweden. Working my 9-5 during the day and making music in the evenings.

Apart from that: I am a friendly and sociable person, and quite philosophical in nature who also likes a good party. I like meeting new people in new places and generally exploring the limits of experience.


If you don't like your life, you can change it.

I haven't found my place in life yet, but I don't let it faze me. I'll keep searching and enjoying the search.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host, go to meetups, and occasionally surf.


Hosted in Stockholm and Bath. Been to several meetups.


Music (Listening/Writing/Performing)
Technology, maths and other assorted geekery
Travel (obviously)
Swimming, running, cycling
Alternative lifestyles and cultures
Questioning recieved wisdom
Tea and alcohol drinking (but not usually at the same time)

Music, Movies, and Books

Films I like include: Requiem For A Dream, The Lives of Others, Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting, Donnie Darko, Persepolis, There Will Be Blood.

Music I like includes: Techno, Minimal, Chiptune, Pop, Folk, Rock n Roll, Psytrance, Witch House, the genre that is inexplicably called 'Indie', the dance music they inexplicably call 'Progressive', 80s Metal, Trip Hop.

Some of my favourite books are: The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Milan Kundera), The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini), His Dark Materials trilogy (Philip Pullman)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Slept under the stars in the deserts of Utah and Arizona.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach lots of things to do with music, especially music production - the art of getting from words and chords to a finished record.

I'd like to learn languages, and the kind of manual skills that I never had the chance to learn because I was brought up in such an academic education system.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United States
