About Me

Grew up all over the West Coast of Scotland, UK, Lived most of the last decade in Glasgow, love the outdoors as much as I love the hustle and bustle of the city. Finally finished a lengthy stint in academia so now I can get out into the world. Lover of all things weird and wonderful.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people and trying new things, I find a lot of value in the benefits of local knowledge. I've had a lot of people help me out on my own adventures and feel hosting a way to pay it forward.
