About Me


Live forever and take over the world.


I like to be spontaneous and experience new things. My friends know me as the person who you should never dare to do something unless they mean it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted a number of people from all over the world when I lived in London and have had a few people to stay in Newcastle too. I've always enjoyed it hosting and meeting new people, even if the encounters are brief. I've also had some wonderful experiences couchsurfing around the world, in places like Palestine, Nepal, and New York.


I loved hosting people at my house. I've always been used to lots of people staying so a few more travellers were always welcome.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading all sorts but especially Russian classics(at the minute The Idiot by Dostoevsky is probably my favourite), Latin American literature, and anything a bit unusual. Wild Swans is possibly my favourite book of all time (although I have just sent it on it's travels with a couchsurfer).

As for music, I love music but I'm useless at music genres. I like Jazz, Reggae, Blues, Rock, Ska and just pretty much anything I can dance to.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are too many things to pick just one. If you meet me I'm sure you can get some stories out of me (especially after a couple of glasses of wine!). Bungee jumping off Victoria Falls was pretty cool.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love a chance to improve on my French. I am always happy to help anyone with their English. I am always looking to learn something new, so if you are passionate about something, I'm all ears.
