About Me


Pull off an Houdini escape act - most probably to Berlin.


I worked in Psychology but was not content staying in the same place my whole life. So I left with the idea of moving to Berlin via one month in Edinburgh. I met someone by accident and this one month became eight. I had a great time, no regrets.

Now I'm back to the original plan of moving to Germany, via a temporary stay in Nottingham.

I love music and play guitar and the ukulele. I used to play in two bands and enjoy home recording. When I am next settled somewhere I would be interested in being in a band again. One of my previous bands, please don't be offended by the lyrics, we just enjoyed making our singer sing the most ridiculous things we could imagine. I am also really in to film, both obscure films and popcorn movies. I have paid monthly for the cinema since 2007.

I like to write a blog about my journey to escape to Berlin which already has a few twists and turns. Check it out

If I have met you, then feel free to add me on facebook


I live life for experiences. I care about passion and excitement. I want to meet as many different people in my life as possible and have experiences all over the world. I think it's important to live in other countries and can't think of anything better than socialising across countries.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been involved in the Nottingham couch surfing scene originally but have also lived and being involved in the Edinburgh scene. I have hosted and been hosted and gone to events and arranged numerous events.

I have also done this throughout Europe when I have been passing through places. I love meeting people.


All brilliant so far !! I've met awesome people - you should meet them too :)

It's been life changing. I have consistently met amazing people.


Back packing (travelling)
Music (everything has a time and place, Indie music is my favourite)
Acoustic Guitar
Films (I pay monthly for the cinema and see most films)
That feeling you get in the ten second gap between deciding to ask someone you meet abroad what country they are from and actually doing it.
Video games (but I don't play often)
Home recording

Now with added Ukulele !!!

I've generally been at the right place at the right time.

I can think of some great romance - but I will keep that a secret.
