About Me


In pursuit of a dream. I would also love to pet a squirrel one day.


2 cups of affability, a pint of caring, lashings of vivacity with a dash of humour. Sprinkle with magic dust and serve warm.

I like to meet people and experience new things.


Have an open heart and open mind. Never think you are better than anyone else. Life life to the fullest. In that moment of hesitation where you think "should I?" - just do it! Unless what you are about to do is completely bonkers, of course.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a tendency to sleep on my friends couches a lot. There's just something about sleeping on a couch that really resonates with me.


The humanities: Music, art, philosophy, literature. Photography. Also contemporary science such as evolutionary biology and cosmology. Neuroplasticity and the power of the mind fascinates me. And humour - comedy is a treasure which should be woven into the fabric of every day. Hand-wash only.
