About Me


To live life. To love life.


After I graduated University, I have spent several years moving about the globe, travelling very cheaply and stopping to work when I need to. I spent some time volunteering on a school building project in Uganda, working as a resort representative (taking people skiing / snowboarding) in the Alps, teaching English as a foreign language in Korea and Turkey, and hitchhiking / cycling / rafting around Europe, living and travelling in Australia, and now reside in Malta because I wanted to try having more than my backpack for a little bit. I have been vegetarian since I was 7. I occasionally post videos on YouTube which gives a better idea of who I am: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-A3T_DXN1gZPOgwEgjsXVg

I aim to live life with no fear and no limitations. I am willing to try almost anything once and hope to learn more about the world through doing this.


Don't work too hard. Enjoy life. Say yes. Chase your dreams. Eat too much ice cream.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couch surfing is a wonderful resource to meet interesting people and learn more about the places that they live in. I think that it is possible to learn far more about a place by meeting people who live there, rather than looking through a guide book.


I love anything that makes your heart beat a little faster. It could be good music, beautiful scenery, or playing sport. Snow sports fill me with excitement and I want to see as much of the world as I possibly can.
