About Me


to enjoy 2015 more than 2014! And to meet and share with people from all over the world.


Im a 34 yr old British guy, about to move to Munich for a few months (hopefully longer).

I have travelled quite alot, but frustratingly not so much for the past 4 years but I am now hoping to change that now.

I work in Visual Effects on films, which I love, but I spend far too long on a computer as a result! I need the outdoors in my life as much as possible.

I have lived in Mexico and Spain, and worked in Costa Rica and a few other countries. My Spanish is a little rubbish now but I can hold a good conversation. My French used to be good now it has disappeared (but I do understand quite a bit). Been in London for 8 yrs now (but originally from the centre of England in the country)... Love meeting people from all over the world, live music and comedy, the outdoor, wildlife, and the sea!

UPDATE Aug 29th 2014: Going off to travel around the USA for a few weeks. Have booked a single flight, turned a few jobs down and going to play the next few weeks by ear (well...money)


Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new

Live like you'll die tomorrow, dream like you will live forever... (not exactly my personal philosophy but I like it anyway..)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I performed at the opening ceremony of the Olympics in 2012!

I was one of 4 leaders on an expedition to the Amazon in 2006. We took 43 teenagers to study the biodiversity of one part of the forest. The hardest thing about it wasnt the harsh environment, it was tryign to control the hormonal students! hah
