About Me

Media Beaver and also DJ for fun and occasional profit who doesn't know when it's time to go home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I done lots of travelling in Europe and in the USA (driven over 90k miles around the country). Happy to share advice to those visiting the UK (particularly the south east or London).

Music, Movies, and Books

Favourite books: Cyberpunk staples (Gibson, Sterling, Stephenson et al). Old school "hard sci-fi", also love books taking an alternative view on problem solving etc.
Movies: I am all about the visual - have a huge soft spot for "2001"

Music: Deep/tech/soulful house! Anything electronic (bar EDM as I am soo not feeling it), also old school metal and Public Enemy!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Was awarded a Queens Marksman award at the age of 13.
