About Me


Learn Thai to a proficient level


Hello everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I'm Jason (as stated above) and have been travelling on and off for some time now since graduating from university. Currently, I'm teaching Mathematics to kids in glorious Bangkok.


Live life to the Pepsi Max because Coke is bad for you.

Food= Life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used couchsurfing whilst I was travelling as a way to complement my cultural experience. Hostels, while great, can be rather impersonal, and sometimes I prefer a more homely environment to bond with people.

I am thankful for all the wonderful hosts I've had over the years and now it's my time to host :)

I currently reside in Bangkok and, despite living there, there is so much I have yet to see, so perhaps we can do some touristy things together.

If you speak Thai or Italian that would be AWESOME! I need to improve so badly.


-Stayed with Padric. He was a great host and so considerate.
-Stayed with Jervyna. She is a saint for letting backpackers stay in her house.
-Stayed with Sho. A wonderful guide.

Music, Movies, and Books

Comedy films - Anchorman, The other guys, anything with Will Ferrell
Romantic comedies- 10 things I hate about you

Best movie- Titanic or Shawshank Redemption or Crash

I also enjoy action and dramas dependent on the mood. However, horror is a no-no as I get scared too easily.I'm such a baby.

Enjoy eclectic mix of music including mainstream.
Fave - Alter Bridge, Paramore, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, 90s dance etc

I'm not really a book person but if you want the challenge of changing my view, then go for it!
