About Me


To make each year more enjoyable and thrilling than the last.


I'm a Londoner currently living and working in Auckland, New Zealand.


I've had a few knocks in my time (who hasn't) but each time I get back up stronger.

Life is for living and enjoying and I never know what's around the corner and what life might bring.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only just started hosting and so far it's been a great experience. I hope this continues!


Little experience of couchsurfing so far as only just joined but past holidays have been mostly staying with friends otherwise hotels all the way! :)


I enjoy photography and trying to keep fit in the gym, jogging, cycling etc. but not at the same time as it tends to result in blurry pictures. ;)

I enjoy movies (see below).

Music, Movies, and Books

I tend to like 'middle of the road' stuff when it comes to music. Ecclectic tastes depending on my mood - classical, pop, big band, jazz, easy listening.

Movies in general but espcially computer animations - they are so inventive (try to go to later showings to avoid noisy kids though! LOL). Like most genres from film festival through to big-budget action flicks.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen the top of Mount Everest, skied down the side of a dormant volcano, swum with dolphins, sky-dived from 12,000 feet, run a half-marathon, been a qualified beach lifeguard and been in love.

Teach, Learn, Share

This year I am going to learn to play Badminton. Learning a new language would also be great but I haven't decided which one yet. Possibly Spanish as there are many South American Countries I have not yet visited but would like to.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Maldives, Nepal, Netherlands, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

New Zealand, United Kingdom
