About Me


Learning by action, interaction, digital futures.


Energetic, creative character on lookout for adventure, new ideas and good vibes. I''m interested in the different consoiderations of normality in the world, really there is no standard. How technology has the power to bring people closer and further apart, trying to expose that in video art.
I try my hardest to remove my own bias, and understand individuals points of view, shoe wearing.


Balance of discomfort and comfort, comfort being the reward for pushing boundaries. I try for 3 things a day which make me nervous or just something new. A most frustrating but rewarding endeavour.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I feel Couchsurfing is like having friends you're just yet to meet..


Surfed over Europe while I was on exchange, both with and without the website. Hosted some travellers when I got back home. Now onto the next chapter of travels and looking to host whilst based in Berlin.


Music, video art, photography, film, animation, design, illustration, writing.

Music, Movies, and Books

Rick & Morty, Miyazaki films, Naked lunch, Aeon flux, Requiem for a dream, Fight club, mr.nobody, memento, kids, drive, submarine. I'm obsessed with traditional animation and more experimental filmmaking.
A few: Flying lotus, Nicolas Jaar, Aphex twin, boards of cananada, John Beltran, Jan Jelinek, Robert Henke, Burial, Mala, . I like most things. show me

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode my bicycle over the Balkans. Something I didn't think I was capable of. spending time in these surreal landscapes where the only way out is riding up a cliff in either direction is very humbling.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm addicted to ball in a cup(kendama).. haha so i can teach you that. Or hacky sack, juggling, some basics of beatboxing. Also really keen to learn how to cook food from different places! I also make pretty good veg curry ;)
