About Me

ABOUT ME

Currently an aspiring writer which sounds as cliched as it gets (!), I'm in Berlin to continue with my written endeavours and back them up with proofreading and copy editing.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

With a strong back and able hands?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None. I'm still waiting for the chaise longue edition.

Interests

Books, music, film. A bit o' the old art, that sort of thing.

Music, Movies & Books

The Third Policeman is one book which springs to mind. As such, my favourite authors include Flann O'Brien (obviously), Thomas Pynchon, Italo Calvino, Kurt Vonnegut and far too many more to mention here.

Music is generally retrospective - usually psych will do the job. This changes according to the wind though.

Films I enjoy include Children of Men, A Clockwork Orange, etc. Peter Greenaway films, Wes Anderson films. Again, too many to mention.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once fought a bird for the right to sleep in a bush. On hindsight, it may have been protecting some chicks and mistook my slumber for an invasive quest for food. I believe it was only the inner strength from hyper-fatigue which resulted in victory. On any other day, I would surely have been overpowered.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to think I'd be able to help people with English.

Czech Republic, France, Slovakia, Turkey, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
