About Me


To travel the globe bare-footed until I'm old and wrinkly, finish my PhD, and meet and share with as many CSers as possible on the way.


I love meeting people from all walks of life and hope to make a difference in this world before I shuffle off :) I'm a full time student doing my PhD on the neuroscience of consciousness - and love to discuss the mysteries of the universe with all types !


Waste not want not.
See a need fill a need.
Sharing is caring.
Hakuna matata!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Its been over 8 years now of happy hosting, surfing, travelling and unforgettable experiences. I always have time for a fellow traveller in need and love swapping tales and comparing adventures from around the globe. Check out the 'My Home' tab for more info if this sounds like a good fit for you too :)


I've couchsurfed all over and think its an unbeatable way to experience the local culture and get a real taste for what life is like in different parts of the planet. I've been lucky enough to Couchsurf and host some of the most genuine friends I've made, it's taken me through Burning Man, Patagonia, Canada, the Amazon, Carnival and back, and I wouldn't change a minute.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

CSing has opened so many doors for me. I've snorkelled with whale sharks in Mexico, studied Spanish in the Guatemalan highlands, visited the Galapagos Islands, Amazon River, Machu Picchu, Carnival in Brazil, had amazonian adventures, Cuban hilarity, Canadian road trips, snow seasons, burning man the list goes on... and hopefully won't end anytime soon.
All of it left me awestruck!
