About Me

I'm Anglo/Irish but grew up in Colombia from a very early age. I lived in the coutryside for the first half of my life, in a magical natural environment. I was home-schooled and then moved to Popayán and Bogotá to study music.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I decided to get to know South America and I think couchsurfing is a nice way to meet other people outside of the usual tourist environments. My family has always received travelers for free and I believe it's a good way of sharing and helping others.
I am presently in Santiago and am heading towards Argentina.


I would like to meet other people in general with a special interest in musicians, musical producers, vegetarians, hikers, bikers, dancers, and people who grow organic food.
