About Me


Living in Barcelona


I'm a 28 year old guy from England, keen to make many friends from all over the world.

I am currently living and teaching in Barcelona. I am new to the city but having a great time!

I'm a pretty uncomplicated guy, just looking to have some fun and make some friends.


Life is simple, don't over-analyse it for Christ's sake! I like to look for the good in everyone cos I get sick of listening to all the bitching that goes around. Everyone means well. Get over it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurfed in various places over the last year. I now have a flat and may be available to host depending on circumstances! Looking to get in to the Barcelona CS social scene as well, and always up for showing people around my new city!


Have surfed in Morocco, Portugal and Spain. Also met up with a few people when I was living in London and in Northern Scotland.


I am in to many sports, mostly play football and golf whilst enjoying the competition of just about anything else.

I love a good book, and when you find an album / artist that you can't stop playing. Very in to letting loose at music festivals but also chilling down the beach with a ball and a book or at a bar with some beers and the conversation flowing.

I love meeting new people, whether for an evening at a bar or going on adventures to far flung places.

I'm proud to be English and want to do my bit to improve our sometimes sullied reputation abroad!

Currently learning Spanish, with baby steps!

I'll give any book a go. Recent favourite reads have been The Count of Monte Cristo, Grapes of Wrath, Charlotte Gray, The Secret History.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycling inside the Kruger National park - setting off before sunrise, narrowly avoiding rampaging hippo's and following the mating calls of wild leopards. Then watching some lions un-self-consciously screwing 30 meters from us.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to meet anyone who can share some bad Spanish conversations with me.

I can teach some English in exchange!
