About Me


Easy going, down to earth and never short of conversation. Loves the outdoors and seeing new places and meeting like minded people.


“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
― George Bernard Shaw

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to travel at the moment.


Never couchsurfed before, I'm a CS virgin :)


Meeting and engaging with like minded people, seeing new places and cultures. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone and realising that there is so much out there to see and experience. I read a lot, and listen to of music, my Kindle and iPod are never far away.

Music, Movies, and Books

Favourite books are The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Accordian Crimes by Annie Proulx and God Is Not Great by the late great Christopher Hitchens. Listen to all sorts of music, always looking to expand my horizons and seek out new stuff. Lots of favourite films, City of God, True Romance, Stand By Me, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Blade Runner, Apocolypse Now....and not forgetting, The Big Lebowski.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'd have to say swimming with wild dolphins in the Watamu Marine National Park in Kenya. Incredible experience and very humbling, magical. That would be closely followed by watching the sunset on the Costa de la Luz.
