About Me


Leaving work behind to experience flavours of Asia and Australasia


I was a deputy head teacher before leaving the UK to travel. I taught for 5 years after leaving University.

I am a lively person who likes sports and outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking and cycling.

I like to read during my spare time and like to make new friends with the people that I meet. I am in a relationship with my girlfriend and we are currently travelling together.


My personal philosophy is currently changing as I get older (and hopefully wiser). I always believed in working hard to achieve the best job that I could and I have done this since I left Universtity.
I have started to change my philosophy as I feel that it is the experiences in life that truely make you rich.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only just become a member of coach surfing as some friend that I have recently met suggested it to me.


None. But I have heard others' many positive experiences!


Rugby, Triathlons, Music, Reading and generally having a good time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have lots of knowledge in the field of pedagogy (teaching) and the practical application. However, I also have a vast knowledge of drinking games that I am willing to share with anyone!
