About Me


Living in Hanoi, Vietnam. Been here since July 2015, teaching English, doing a bit of travelling here and there, and exploring hobbies and interests! Really love living here, despite the chaos and pollution (which can get to you) it's exciting, up-and-coming city to live in, packed full of Vietnamese charm and beauty.


I'm Marco, from the UK. I'm currently living and teaching English in Vietnam.

Music, Movies, and Books

Yes. Yes. Yes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Saved a farm from a forest fire.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching, learning and sharing languages, music, movies, philosophies, experiences. Deep talks about the universe, life and everything. All that good stuff.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Can cook a few Italian dishes. Share music, movies, languages, stories, jokes. We could have a jam if you have/play musical instruments. I play percussion (djembe, bongos, cajon), a bit of piano, a tiny bit of guitar.

Love playing football and table-tennis, rock climbing, slacklining
