About Me


Be kind, Have fun


Most people describe me as being pretty positive with a lot of energy, with socialist tendencies of course.


Be kind, have fun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hang out with other surfers, hosting, organize meetup events, whatever.


I've recently had a sudden surge in hosting opportunities. My surfing experience is couchsurfing meetups,staying with friends and in hostels.


Film, photography, art, baking, having fun, hiking, camping, playing Frisbee and traveling.

I'm also now a core member of Troy Bike Rescue ( and very much into independent media and social change.
