About Me

CURRENT MISSION

travelling the world playing tennis tournaments

ABOUT ME

I am currently an aspiring tennis player. I am travelling the world playing tennis tournaments on the professional circuit, but at the lower end of it (so far!).

It's such an amazing experience because I love travelling, meeting new people and seeing different cultures, but at the same time it's pretty tough and at this level I make virtually no money at all from it.

I would love to couch surf with people as I feel it gives you a much better experience of a country than if you are staying in a hotel or something, and I love to meet new people!

PHILOSOPHY

There is so much beauty in the world. I just want to surround myself with as much of it as possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

It is a bit difficult for me to host couch surfers, just because I am so often away travelling myself... however while I am back home I would always be open to taking someone in. I had someone stay from Colombia just a couple of weeks ago.. was a nice experience

Interests

tennis, sports, travelling, nature, anything creative! graphic design, making music, making films, art, meeting people, helping people feel better about themselves

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lying under the stars on Isla Grande in Panama was an incredible experience. To see the full expanse of stars without the pollution of light around was mind numbing!

I lay there for about 3 hours doing nothing but just gazing with my jaw half open! luckily for me after 3 hours some clouds came across and I decided it was time for bed... otherwise I would probably still be there now! I could never get tired of looking at that view... so much beauty and absolute perfection.

Teach, Learn, Share

Before last year I knew no spanish at all... now I am determined to learn it! I am gradually getting there, but still need a lot of practice!

I have lots of stories to share from interesting trips of mine! I always love to exchange travel stories with people I meet!

I can TRY to teach you how to make the sound of a water drop by flicking your cheek!!
