I am Australian, worked as a social worker in Australia for a decade and as a journalist for around 5 years now. On August 13 I'll have been happily married to a Korean lady for 11 years now.
I like to feel as though I am trying to do my bit to improve society.
Recent documentary topics:
1. The dog meat trade in South Korea
2. Cocaine in Australia
3. The emerging circular economy, RE: tool library in Brisbane, car sharing etc
4. Dumpster diving (i.e., waste)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To share stories and experience as well as learn from others.
To find places to stay (if needed) with good people.
To offer places to stay (even though we are in the suburbs).
So you know I am genuine, please see my Facebook profile: https://www.facebook.com/james.hyams.thefirst
I like photography, film, researching important topics, recording sounds, the beach, beautiful scenery, warm climates, socialising, meeting new people, encountering and experiencing life.
