About Me

My time usually likes to wander all about the place, in running a people's kitchen, sleeping in mountain huts, staking sunflowers, playing with sounds, loungeroom dance parties, late night reading and following social, geographical and mental tangents.

Currently however, it is 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 hard earned cash on a place to kip just to find themselves stranded in the middle of a backpacker pub crawl.
