About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Help fill empty couches - here, there and everywhere.

ABOUT ME

I'm a journalist, a cook and a nomad who enjoys new places, experiences, and people.

PHILOSOPHY

"From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached."
- Franz Kafka

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd be hard-pressed to repay all the incredible kindness and hospitality shown to me by strangers/soon-to-be-friends during my globe-trotting adventures. But gosh darn it, I'm going to try!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was inadvertently accommodated by a couchsurfing host I met on a bus in Morocco and made some wonderful friends through it. I've been hosted here, there and everywhere by kind strangers and I look forward to using this site to find open couches and friendly folk the next time I set out on an adventure.

Interests

I enjoy all things outdoorsy - rock climbing, wakeboarding, cycling, hiking, camping, kayaking, snowboarding - as well as hitchhiking, bicycle mechanics, reading, writing, cooking, and everything in between, including fine food, refreshing drinks and good company.
