About Me


Meet people and get to know other cultures


I'm a poet and lecturer teaching Creative Writing at Sheffield University with undergraduates and mature students. I also teach for the Workers Educational Association and I do workshops in schools.
I sing in a choir and love walking in the countryside.
I love classical music and the theatre.
I'm also a member of Servas.


Getting on with other people, listening to them, realising that all people have likes and dislikes, some of which you can be enthusiastic about, but always sympathetic.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I see travelling and hosting travellers from other countries as a wonderful way of bringing people together and helping international understanding.


I've stayed with Servas hosts in France, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, the USA and South Africa.
I have hosted Servas travellers from France, Germany, Spain, Norway, USA, India and Hungary.
