About Me


I graduated in June 2008 from a degree in International Development and since then i've been traveling and working in the Middle East, North and then East Africa. It's been tough at times but generally a rewarding and enriching experience! Going to start an MA at SOAS in London in September 2009 but until then i'm on the road!

Love living in London. There is always something to do and see - particularly love the music scene, arts and entertainment, festivals and gigs. At the same time I like to escape the city and head out to the countryside or coast.

Over all I guess I'm a pretty relaxed and easy going guy who's keen to meet a whole lot of new and exciting like minded people!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm brand new to this couch surfing malarkey and can't wait to get into it! I've had it suggested to me several times I cannot ignore it here I am! I'm looking forward to hanging out with a range of interesting people, getting off the backpacker trail and experiencing new and exciting things with the people who know best - locals!


Love the outdoors - trekking, climbing and surfing are amongst my favorites. I also have a real passion for music and love listening to new artist or bands and getting out to as many gigs and festivals as I can.
Like most people on this, traveling is a big one as well and I've have spent time in India, South America, Africa and the Middle East.
