About Me


I need to sort my life out. It's a lifelong project.


I'm an architect and EFL (English language) teacher. I love travel, culture, art and meeting people. By good fortune and a bit of work, my career path has allowed me to do these things in a few different countries and long may it continue.


Live to learn, learn to live. And enjoy the experience.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm fairly new to this.


I'm interested in all kinds of music, film, history, art, literature, cafes, bars, mountains, bicycle shops, rivers, trees (nature in general) and large comfy armchairs. Plus, people to talk to on rainy nights.
