About Me


To make the world a happier place.


Living in Hackney London. Loving in life. Enjoys new things, people. places. Dancing, singing, playing, making, doing, reading, being, ing ing ing.

Try to travel as much as possible and generally go wherever there are friends. Would like to go to more places and make more friends.

Do-gooder, fun maker, drinker of tea.


The Desiderata.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate in as many ways I can. My crew has grown and I have a husband, 3-year-old and a 10month old baby. We haven't travelled much with Covid, expecting babies and having newborns. Hoping to give the kids an adventurous spirit and teach them that strangers are just friends you haven't met yet!


Many generous people have put us up, often friends of friends and we always return the favour. Highlights include Carlos who was already putting a family up but let loads of us kip on his roof as we had nowhere else to go. What a dude.


I like to think I take an interest in most things. Currently preoccupied with politics, Motherhood, and the politics of motherhood ; )

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sang in bands, wrote in books, taught in colleges, drank in bars, danced at sunrise, trusted in strangers. Fell in love at first sight once. That was pretty cool.

Teach, Learn, Share

Boundless energy. Enthusiasm for life Not so keen on putting myself in these boxes; happy to teach/learn how to get out of them. I have an aptitude for learning most things that can be learnt in a week.

Super Powers include: Making things happen, putting people in touch with the things they need.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good vibes mostly! We are a super friendly and positive crew, happy to contribute to all things home-related - cooking/cleaning / entertaining the children.
