About Me


To travel around on two wheels, with a sketchbook and a camera.


I graduated from Kingston University two years ago having studied Illustration and Animation. I moved to London last Summer and am now establishing myself as a freelance illustrator and print-maker, working in a print studio and creating my own work.I am open minded, calm and love being in the countryside; woods in particular.


I'll try anything once.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My house-boat is open for tea and coffee and I'd be happy to show anyone around the mooring where I live and the pretty streets of Wapping.


I couch surfed for the first time this Summer whilst on a cycle trip around Holland, Belgium and France and met some very kind and interesting people. I would love to do it again soon.


Despite not being particularly 'sporty', I always find myself drawn to activities that challenge me. I like cycling, climbing and scuba diving as well as ballroom, latin and rock n roll dancing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can talk about drawing for hours, could definitely teach you to draw or just make a nice drawing for you.
