About Me


Theres only one planet, so why can't we experience it all?


I grew up in Zimbabwe and have lived in Korea, just moved back to Scotland to pursue my PhD.

That sounds like a terrible idea, let's do it! Sometimes the mad, potentially crazy things turn out to be the best fun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I speak some korean, know my way around and I even know a single magic card trick and a few drinking games. I also know CS hosts in a few cities and have a tent. 가자!

I've hosted csers when I lived in Edinburgh and recently surfed in Malaysia and Singapore. When I lived in Daegu almost a year and had a couple couch surfers. Just getting settled in to a new flat in Glasgow with space to host CSers :D


Whenever I visit friends and family abroad I always end up couchsurfing! I've stayed in Zimbabwe, South Africa, across the UK, USA, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and got many more planned!


Music, tech, normal guy stuff really.
I believe in microloans in developing countries and use Kiva -

Teach, Learn, Share

Couchsurfers are like children setting out on a wild adventure with nothing but high spirits & a bag of toffees..

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food. So much food. I know Glasgow and Edinburgh really well, always happy to recommend a hidden pub or weird tourist attraction, or gem of a tea shop.
