About Me

I enjoy traveling to different countries to learn about different cultures. I have been fortunate enough to find a job on the other side of the world that brings me closer to lots of places I want to visit.

I am not one of those people who have the innate ability at picking up new languages or remembering names even though I try. I do not often enjoy large crowds and prefer smaller groups to socialize with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on Couchsurfing to find those unique events that will allow me a better insight at the culture of the country I happen to be visiting and along the way meet new people.


I enjoy reading and often find myself unable to put a book down when I find it interesting. Although that seems to be a rare opportunity these days. I like listening to a variety of music ranging from pop to reggae through to the occasional blues song. While I listen to the music the name of the group or the song never seems to stay with me.
