About Me

I'm a laid back guy but I enjoy stepping outside my comfort zone every so often. I like to explore.. it is my curiosity about the world that sparks this. This same curiosity drives my interest for getting to know other cultures and customs.. something I find fascinating.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm still trying to find it; to know myself and to know others. To be considerate but also challenge injustice. To remove sources of discomfort and to help others do the same.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed extensively and now have the opportunity to host to pay on the hospitality I received. I've met up with couchsurfing groups in various locations too.

I think couchsurfing should be used for more than just finding a place to sleep.. it is an excellent way to share culture and spread ideas as well as getting to know an individual.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed my way from Norway to Turkey and picked up friends and stories along the way. I've hosted at my parents home in Kent and my flat I London too.. sometimes its more fun that surfing!

Interests

I have interests in sport (particularly football, so if you play maybe we can share a game), science, philosophy, literature, film, and many more subjects! I usually have an opinion on a matter but I am more than happy to learn about a subject too. I enjoy occasionally drinking and socializing which has lead me to try performing at open mic nights and even led me to joining a band.
