About Me

This year I got married to my girlfriend of 9 years, Roseanna. We're looking to explore the world and have an adventure together before we "settle down".

For the last 4 years I've been working in London for a small charity, whilst living in Oxfordshire.

I am a confident, smart, and out-going person who is easy to get on with. People who know me best know that I have a good sense of humour, a sensitive soul and an open mind. My natural habitat is the beach.

I am motivated to do good in the world; as a social entrepreneur, a campaigner and an idealist. I have recently become a Christian, and am optimistic about the world - even if things sometimes look a bit frightening!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I first experienced Courchsurfing in the summer of 2010, whilst I was living in Spain learning Spanish. I was overwhelmed by how kind and generous people could be, and loved meeting new people.

The spirit of Couchsurfing is really powerful once you've encountered it. I want to keep it alive by meeting new people and sharing great experiences with people.
