About Me


To find the perfect lighthouse.


23 year old University graduate, who once again recently quit a job to travel the world. Still looking for that place where I feel like I could potentially settle down. In the mean time, random wanderings will do. Besides a penchant for travelling, I am an avid music and film fan.


I don't exactly have much of a philosophy. I'm a pretty laid back sort of guy, who rolls with the punches. Not one to get stressed out over anything - there's far better things I'd rather spend my time doing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None so far unfortunately, my trip to Canada/US is the first time I'm really looking to give this whole thing a go.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music wise my tastes range from Bjork to the Rolling Stones via Iron & Wine with a hint of the Cure. A little something from every genre seems about right. My favourite movie of all time is the Fifth Element, so draw your own conclusions from that if you will. I do enjoy a good book, personal favourite is probably The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen quite a few things now as I've travelled the world and had some amazing experiences. I know it's a cliche, but the top of said list is probably my visit to Machu Picchu. I know it's probably the same as thousands of others, but visiting that was the culmination of living out a decade long dream/fascination. Can't complain that by the age of 22, I'd crossed the top item off of my bucket list.
