About Me


to learn about life by constantly sharing it with different and diverse people!


I'm a very easy going individual, happy to spend time and learn from anyone! Have a passion for film, watching and making, love to be intrigued, educated and inspired by film.. love it. Try and film atleast something whilst i'm travelling and when I'm not travelling work on creative projects at home ( Also naturally a big fan of traveling, no surprises there, nothing more exciting then being in new surroundings with new company, what life is for.


To always strive for happiness and to make others happy in the things that we do... and to always keep laughing.. always.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couch surfed for the first time in 2008 whilst backpacking Europe with a friend, have nothing but awesome experiences, meeting some great and exceptionally kind people that we've stayed in touch with. Have since couchsurfed in Mongolia, with experiences that completely made my trip, it wouldn't have been the same without couchsurfing and the people I met through it!Have made a film about just how awesome couchsurfing is...


Have had various sofa sleeping experiences in the past, I once slept on a sofa that was on a roof ...other than that, on the sofas of people who have given me rides on my travels, on hostels sofas when i've arrived at full hostels, CS sofas and also at home on my own sofa when I haven't been able to make it to my bedroom..


Very interested in film and filmmaking, particularly documentary and personal films. Like everyone, interested in music, love listening to something new and something different, especially local sounds from the places I visit. Interested in running, try and get out on runs a couple of times a week, have done a few half marathons and one full in Warsaw last year which was surprisingly good fun. Love any sort of adventure/extreme sports including surfing (trying to), wakeboarding, waterskiing, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, scuba diving, mountain biking.. and even just going for a walk around somewhere new, ..can't beat it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hanging out in a Mongolian ger, following a Filipino politician around and witnesses the opening of Guatemala's first comic book shop ...all in the name of documentary filmmaking!
