About Me


To expand my mind, along with my horizons


I am a Scot, who recently returned to living in Glasgow after 3 and a half years in Brighton, England. I was down in England studying a PhD in Literature. Now that I have completed this, I am back in Glasgow and I work in the theatre.


I love to learn and experience new things!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a wonderful time so far using couch surfing. I find the people who use this site to be open, interesting and I love the experience it offers of making new friends and having experiences which would otherwise be impossible.


Literature- particularly American, Scottish and Irish literature.

Sports - I play a lot of badminton, as I like to hit things after a long day's thinking.

Films/Music - I'm quite into anti-folk these days, but I will basically listen to anything alternative and good. Like any Glaswegian, I enjoy going to see live music. Watching good movies on a regular basis is also important to me. I also listen to a lot of electro, like Grimes, Com Truise, Crystal Castles etc.
