About Me


Exploring myself and exploring South America


I like to think I'm laid-back, openminded, and easy to be around. I try to think of others as well as myself! I would like to make a difference in this world, and am on my path of discovering how that might manifest itself.
Having a laugh and having fun with others is v important to me! I'm a v sociable person, though I also love just chilling out.
I'm really into all the arts and love learning new things and discovering new places.
I can be a little slow-moving and take a while to get ready in the morning!


In God I trust.
Love your neighbour as yourself - or at least try to!
Be grateful for the good things that happen every day.
Never stop learning.
Dare to be different.
Laughter is truly the best medicine!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I first used couchsurfing in Rio de Janeiro, from July - Sept 09, and it was a wonderful way to meet people - a godsend for those who travel on their own! The weekly meetings in Rio were loads of fun - I miss them! Since then I couchsurfed in Florianopolis and in Mendoza, Argentina, and had great experiences with really generous hosts. I'm now meeting couchsurfers in Buenos Aires, where I'm going to stay for a year. Am constantly delighted with what an amazing resource this website is!

Have a new-found interest in samba after spending time in Rio.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I acted in a feature film when I was 9 years old. It was a wonderful, lucky experience and helped to formulate my passion for all things dramatic.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share some fun drama games and interesting acting theories.
I can share some wonderful experiences I've had on a spiritual journey that I've started in South America, and how getting closer to God has changed my life.
There are so many things I want to learn!: to play the guitar, to sing better, the history of art.
