About Me




I am a friendly Englishman, currently wanting to see Europe and the World

Otherwise I live in London. I live in the East End, in the pretty yet gritty area of Hackney. It is an area full of arts and music but still keeping its old history and local feel. A road near by used to be called murder mile but its harmless really! Its now full of galleries and underground art clubs.

I shall be training to become a Conservator of art in the future and I am also a photographer. Look at my website!


Curiosity never killed the cat!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couch surfed a few time s- it has always been great - I have just moved into a new place so not sure about whether I can take new couch surfers - will have to check with my new lovely fatmate.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In Sweden, I climbed a large hill in Molle to get to a huge wooden sculpture called Nemes - I'm terrified of heights and have asthma so I was panting and clinging to everything I could but I'm very proud that I did it. It was a similar experience getting up to the first level of the Eiffel Tower.
