About Me

Grew up just outside Liverpool. Went to University in Loughborough to study Physics, and have since been a labourer, Lawyer, log splitter, site Engineer and now I'm an naval officer.

I first got into traveling after I graduated from university and I haven't looked back since!!

Over the last few years i've been lucky enough to visit many places, however most have been in Europe so I am hoping to go further afield whenever work allows.

Also, I live a little bit outside of Liverpool, so if you just want to see the city then mine might not be that ideal. There is some nice nature and stuff around mine though so if you want a mix, it could be a good choice!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting people. It is as simple as that.


Travelling, adventure, hiking, climbing mountains, bouldering, hitchhiking (over 29,500 miles as of September 2021), skiing, kayaking ........ Just generally being outdoors!!

Also a very sporty person.... Football, cricket, tennis, golf, squash, and pool mostly but I'll try playing almost anything. I also LOVE to watch live sport. Especially football.

Other stuff..... I like to cook although i don't do it very often. I also like learning about other cultures, food, and things like sports and traditions of countries I visit.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Almost everything really. I love films!

Music: Again a wide range, though i suppose I am a bigger classic rock fan than most!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Was a junior national tripple jump champion! Back in the day like...
Charity world record holder (I shouted at people for 13 hours and made them give me money, something which i am apparently very good at)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Absolutely terrible banter.
