About Me


Hitchhiking to Bucharest for charity!
EDIT: Made it all the way without paying for any transport! :)

Back in Sheffield to finish off university.


Astrophysics student in my final year. I'm determined to not let my dissertation destroy my social life.

If you ask me about something I'm interested in I'll talk with you for hours and we'll probably end up so far from the topic we started at we won't be able to work out how we got there!


Is it going to make a good story? I should probably do it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


After some fantastic hosts in the US, I'll be trying to repay the community while I'm at home. Until next summer, at least!


During the summer of 2012 I busked my way around Europe with two friends. It was the best experience of my life to date, both for the places and the people we met along the way. Some of whom we try to keep in touch with when we can!

I also did a hitchhike from Sheffield, UK to Vilnius, Lithuania for charity. Met some awesome people and saw some incredible places.

Last summer I travelled over 7000 miles in a van around the US, staying with some fantastic people along the way.

Stayed with some great people during my second hitchhike, this time from Sheffield to Bucharest.

Also been hosting people in Sheffield whenever I can accommodate them. It's always nice to get a fresh face in for a night or two - my housemates are even on board!


I study astrophysics, but the time I should be spending on that I spend playing and writing music instead. That or planning the next big trip!

I tried sushi in Seattle and it changed my life.

Flying solo on my last roadtrip has led me to rediscover my love of reading in crowded places.

Music, Movies & Books

My music tastes vary on my mood massively; everything from Chopin to Zeppelin to Noisia crops up from time to time!

I have a secret love for romcoms, but a solid thriller or horror film will always beat it.

I'm currently reading the Steig Larsson trilogy and it is the tits. That and endless research papers; they aren't so thrilling.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Flew a sea plane over Lake Tahoe.

Ended up on tour with a wonderful couple of musicians after meeting them in a bar.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll make your lives a bit more exciting while we're together, and I'm always up for swapping stories. If you like music then I can awkwardly serenade you too, some people have told me I'm quite good!

What I Can Share With Hosts

Guests get to crash in our lounge, there's three sofas and you basically get your own space as we don't use it too often.
