About Me

My name is James, I'm 26, I live in East London and work in marketing. In my spare time I write and I'm working through my first novel, a coming of age story set in the Melbourne bar scene.

I've traveled extensively and lived around the world. I have a great passion for writing and sharing experiences. I like jazz, old movies and world food.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet new people, get inspired and stay off the beaten track.


I am primarily interested in art and culture. Aside from books I have a great passion for painting, movies and music.

I'm into keeping fit, I'm currently training for third Tough Mudder.
