About Me

Hello! I'm a Londoner on my way around Asia this summer to support some anti-trafficking charities and make the most of the gigs, good people, and museums in Korea, China and Vietnam. It would be great to meet other like-minded people who are fun, compassionate, and happy to go exploring (or alternative swap stories about your home or places you've been!) In exchange for staying with a lovely host, I can draw your portrait and help with the washing up...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a media officer for a lovely social care charity in the UK, but I've now quit my job in order to travel and (hopefully) start a human rights course in September! Would be great to meet fun, people with interesting stories in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Seoul and Shanghai.
