About Me

Slightly madcap engineer who helps drive a submarine around the world's oceans.

In my own time, I love to get into the outdoors, spending time either kayaking or hiking in the mountains.


KBO (Keep Buggering On). No matter what life throws at you, just keep your eye on your goal, suddenly things might come good.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Started with a couple of couches in Bavaria, and loved it. Definitely more fun and interesting than staying in the local campsite, and absolutely beats hotels.


Mountains, exploration, history, engineering, hitchhiking, seeing something different.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Paddling up the Sound of Kerrera flanked by dolphins.

Teach, Learn, Share

Currently teaching myself to Slackline (slowly) so any assistance would be appreciated.

Not bad with a map and a compass. I have also built a kayak, so I find most DIY fairly simple.

Would like to become a better cook.

What I Can Share With Hosts

How to navigate. I can also polish shoes really well.

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, United States

Countries I've Lived In

United Kingdom
