About Me

I study Archaeology and Anthropology in London. When I am travelling I enjoy visiting museums and art galleries, the sea, cycling and camping, so hope to do more of this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It would be great to learn new skills to lend to my current projects. I would be interested in learning about wood working, carpentry, pottery, using various tools and constructing buildings out of a variety of materials, gardening and visiting new landscapes and people.

Music, Movies, and Books

The last two books I read: 'I know why the caged bird sings,' 'Slaughterhouse 5'.
I like all of Orwell more or less, T.S Elliot, Tolstoy and Solzhenitsyn, Joseph Campbell. I am trying to read 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' but it's taking a long time (ha..ha). Tarkovsky, Ingmar Bergman and other films including Ghibli and Spaghetti Westerns. Recently watched 'Paris,Texas' and it was a really amazing film. Music I love dancing and seeing new music. I enjoy Joanna Newsom, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance. I recommend you try a website called
