About Me


Living in DEWSBURY not LEEDS!


I'm very easy going, get on with most people. Spend most of my time studing, working or socialising. I've just graduated in Zoology from Leeds Uni, but now continuing with my degree in Medicine. My hobby at the moment is home-brewing, love the real ale! Also quite excited as its now the BBQ season!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Leeds Couchsurfing Ambassador

I surf, I host and I share.

Its great to tell people about couchsurfing and all its benefits. The confused look on their faces always make me smile! However speaking to people first-hand and sharing my experiences is definately the best way to encourage people to 'get involved'and share their own couch!


Couch surfed in NZ - Awesome!
Couchsurfed around Eastern Europe
Hosted loads of people here in Leeds - Check out the photos of our 'Couchsurfer's hand board'!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sky dived in New Zealand - common you might think, but I have a real horrible fear of falling!

Climbed to top of Mt. Sinai in the dark to watch the sunrise over the Sinai desert. Climbed back down again with no soles left in my shoes!

Treked the Mountain Gorillas in the impenetratable rain-forest in Uganda - A lifetime goal achieved and made even more awesome by one of the 4 year old gorilla's stroking my arm!

Teach, Learn, Share

Ever been Hypnotised? I can attempt to teach you the very basics, and can usually put you to sleep (with my boring anecdotes if the hypnosis fails!).
