About Me

Since February 1st, 2017 I am living and working on a boat hostel "The Cabin" in Amsterdam. It's a friendly and cozy environment so if you are visiting Amsterdam please stop by and visit. Sadly I don't have anywhere to host CSers as yet, but I'm sure you will love the boats character and the friendly couple that manage The Cabin.
If you live in Amsterdam, let's connect especially if you enjoy a slower pace and appreciate the Now moment.

In December 2016 I left New York City and moved back to the UK. Since February 1st 2017 I'm now setting in Amsterdam NL.

Live life fully, be open, be compassionate and forgiving, allow yourself to be surprised, sharing joy with those around.
It's becoming clear there's a lot of crazy things people do to themselves and others, participating in the CS community is one way to make the world a more sharing caring place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sadly it's been a while since I have had a place to host. I am participating more in the the CS groups. I plan to organize some cool CS events in Amsterdam.

Couchsurfing is my favorite community because it's based on the principle of sharing resources, something that I believe is essential and yet too often lacking. I am grateful for all those I have been able to host, be hosted or to meet up, CS makes the world a better place!
