About Me


to see the world & then live the rest of my life in California or Australia!


Sporty, fun, I have life experience, humorous, well mannered, smart, interesting, chilled out, silly...
In my life I plan to keep seeing more of the world, experience different cultures & put smiles on faces.
I'm Straight - yet I have many Lesbian/Gay friends so I am not homophobic.
I think CS should have a section for sexual preference as (after reading a few references and receiving a few messages) I feel it is important people know and respect sexual preference. Yes it shouldn't matter but I am seeing more and more people use CS as a dating site.


Treat people as you would want to be treated.
I follow The Four Agreements.
I believe everyone is beautiful when they smile.
I don't take life TOO seriously and like to have fun, enjoy myself and make others happy and laugh.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfin on my travels and meeting wonderful human beings.
POSSIBLY could host but it's a case of convincing my housemate.


Met for tourism and dinner in San Antonio Texas. Surfed in New Orleans, Burlington Vermont and Montreal. CS'ed around Ireland and up the West coast of USA up into Canada.
I loved all my experiences and met some lovely people and new friends for life!
I have had a Ukraine couple, 3 Swiss ladies and a solo Spanish friend stay with me at mine & at my parents.
In 2013 I travelled to 17 countries and CS'd across a lot of them, see my references! :P

Teach, Learn, Share

I have lots of music knowledge.
I'm kind of a jack of all trades but master of none as I'm too easily distracted and want to keep trying new things, but I'm a good jack!
I play football well and I have a Level 1 FA Coaching Badge.
Currently trying to learn French properly via audio mp3s.
I have my music hard drive (with 21,000 songs) with me for sharing too.
