About Me

My time usually likes to wander all about the place, running a people's kitchen, climbing mountains, staking sunflowers, playing with sounds, dancing in lounge rooms, reading late into the night, sharing ideas and banter and following social, geographical and mental tangents.

Currently however, it is mostly engulfed in a thesis.

Personality wise I'm known to be quite cheerful, quite sarcastic, prone to all consuming fits of laughter at small absurdities, and to falling asleep on cue in buses, libraries and discotheques.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I do enjoy jumping into people's lives and finding them suddenly in the middle of mine. Also, nobody should have to spend their cash on a place to kip just to find themselves stranded in the middle of a backpacker pub crawl.
