About Me


enjoy, explore and challenge


They'd say I was a good friend, trustworthy, loyal, generous, fun to be around, good listener and talker... I treat people how I like to be treated. All the usual stuff really...

I'm chilled out, but happy to party at the drop of a hat. I'm just keen to explore new cultures and I think there's no better way than with doing it with the locals.

Oh yeah, I was a TV journalist for 10 years :-)


Oh for a life of sensations rather than of thoughts - John Keats

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm keen to experience the world as a local... It's not all about staying on a couch, but getting to know the people that sit on it!


I'll add as I go...


Love music - listening to it more often than Dj-ing these days. Enjoy talking to and meeting new people - after all I was a journalist with the BBC for 10 years. Love a good debate/discussion too. I like to experience new things especially food - I love to cook. Love the thought of new challenges and seeing and meeting amazing people. I also host an open mic night for singers, poets etc in Shoreditch in London.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I performed in the Opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games in front of an audience of 2 billion people. The whole 4 month lead up and the actual event was amazing - I met some friend for life and shared one of the most incredible moments in my life.
Racing 100m in the Olympic stadium in front of 20,000 spectators left me very humbled.
I've had the pleasure of meeting many people as a journalist that live me awe struck and inspired to go on and live my life to it's full potential!
