About Me

I'm an inquisitive young lad who loves meeting new people and hearing their stories. I've picked up a few myself and many through Couchsurfing. Over the last few years I've been a bit of a nomad, but now I've returned home and found a room in Brixton. I'm originally from Yorkshire so London's quite new to me and there's a lot to explore. Bring on the Summer!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I visited this tired old town on the Baltic coast and the Lonely Planet write up didn't seem to be quite living up to its billing. A friend suggested we try Couchsurfing and we ended up meeting some awesome locals who showed us a side to the place we'd never have found.

I then used it out in Australia and New Zealand, both as a surfer and a host, and I had a great time meeting cool people. I hope to continue in that vein now I'm back in London.


I love to travel and go exploring. I enjoy going out and eating good food surrounded by a fun crowd. I play a bit of sport and watch a lot more.
