About Me


To not blow all my money on beer while in London


Currently travelling. I enjoy basketball, beer, travelling, talking too much. Not necessarily in that order. I'm 29. I once got a score of 7 on Countdown.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host when I can. I have never used the site to surf but I am familiar with strangers couches.


Have occasionally bumped into other people while travelling who use the site and subsequently have been offered a couch or bed for the night, which is always nice.


Incredibly interesting ones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
