About Me


Just seen a load of messages filling my inbox...Sorry guys, don't really come on here that often anymore! Couchsurfing just aint what it used to be. Maybe you'll catch me randomly one day


I'm a magician and finally settled back down in Hong Kong after spending many years away. I'm a friendly person, love to meet new and interesting people and I like to make people happy with surprise and wonder. I'm active and outgoing and love to learn and experience new things.

If you're ever out clubbing in LKF, gimme a shout! :)


Believe in yourself
Don't knock something until you've tried it.
I love performing magic for people, the surprise and wonder that it creates in people is what is really the magic. It changes people's moods and lifts them up, makes you happy and rediscover the child in yourself.
Keeping active and exploring the outdoors is what drives me, spending all your time in the same spot or the city can be very dull, nature is beautiful and inspiring.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well currently I'm getting to know Hong Kong pretty well, so if you want to meet up with myself I can introduce you to friends and sites around here, or meet for a coffee/drink of some description. I cannot host as I'm staying with other people. I'm always up for meeting new people and hanging out, doing whatever...


The only experience I've had in this area is staying the night or weekend round a friends house, and crashed in someone's spare room in Hong Kong.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading about magic, the tricks, the methods, the psychology and philosophy behind it.
I also enjoy reading books similar to Dan Brown.
My music taste is very eclectic and changes with mood

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Survived military basic training, I think that's pretty amazing, even for me!
To be honest there are lots, something to share in person i think.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think I've already discussed what I would share, but what I would like to learn.... New dishes to cook, new languages and perhaps some new skills/hobbies or to look at something in another persons view.

Countries I’ve Visited

New Zealand, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In
