About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make a change, however small it may be.

ABOUT ME

Describing myself is difficult as I am not any one thing. I enjoy meeting people and love to travel. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of one and that everybody can make some sort of difference no matter how small.

I have a passion for the environment and all things natural. I work, study and play with nature. Science and conservation fascinate me.

My hobbies include hiking and just wandering in "wild" places whenever I get the chance.

PHILOSOPHY

Be the change you want the world to be.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting. Gleaming as much information about the world as possible from the people I host.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have learned that the more independent the surfer, the more I enjoy their company.

I find it disheartening and disrespectful when you open your home to somebody, that they cannot even make the effort to thank their host and leave a review. Couchsurfing appears to be loosing its spirit and people have become greedy.

"Let The Great World Spin"

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My entire trip to South America was absolutely amazing! But if there is one sight I have ever seen which absolutely blew me away was the sight of 60,000 ganets nested on a jagged rock called the Skellig Islands off the coast of Kerry, Ireland. Proof that you don't have to travel to the far reaches of the earth to see the wonders of nature!

Teach, Learn, Share

One piece of advice I have to offer is "Bring your own plastic bags to the supermarket" :)
