About Me


Explore the world whilst having as much fun as is humanly possible!


I am a bit (understatement) of a wildlife nerd, so my past travels have revolved around working with wildlife. Luckily I also like humans, especially ones who make life happen for themselves and who seek out exciting opportunities!

I love to banter and I like to think I don't take life too seriously. Although I do know to be very mature when I need to be :). But usually if you see me, I'm probably pulling a silly face and making weird notions with my hands...


Dance until you die (sweating will also suffice).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to go to CS meetings whenever I can. I've surfed before, but can't wait until I can host people in the future!


So far all of my CS experiences have been positive and I've learnt something from every one.


Spying on wildlife, travel, culture, meeting interesting people, dancing, reading, FOOD,playing piano and attempting to play guitar.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a bit of everything but particular favourites include Disney :), zombies, Wayne's World.

I'll listen to all sorts of music, but some particular favourites are Ella Fitzgerald, Tom Waits, Chromeo, Bon Iver, Solomon Burke, Ray Charles, The Tallest Man On Earth...But for dancing my guilty pleasure is RnB :)

I love reading. But I think I need to become more cultured with my book choice; I'm open to suggestions!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got capuchin monkey pee in my eye!

But no seriously...I studied spotted hyenas in the Masai Mara, Kenya. I lived alongside Maasai people and just had the most incredible time out there.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want to know about wildlife I am happy to talk about it. If you want to know about spotted hyenas I am VERY happy to talk about it. If I get too into it and don't stop nattering, just tell me to shut up :)

I love learning and I am very curious. This usually results in me wanting to try a bit of everything!
