Meet a person from every country
I'm pretty tall at 6'7, but saying that i can also fold away like a camping table to fit into necessary spaces. (backs of cars, small houses etc).
I'm a very easy going kind of guy. I love meeting new people, hearing their stories and learning from them.
I'm very passionate about travel and understanding new cultures. I love getting out there and exploring new places and capturing everything i experience through my camera lens.
Pay it forward.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I joined couchsurfing to see a side of traveling that not a lot of people see; it's almost like the 'behind the scenes'.
Rather than staying in hostels and hotels, where you may only get a tourists view of a place, instead I love to meet local people and share stories and adventures with them to really get a feel for where they live.
Exploring new places and meeting new people as I go.
I love that last minute rush of finding a place to stay and then having an amazing new experience with people that you have just met.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Travelled to South Africa in 2008 to do a month of community work. This was an amazing experience. I met so many people and have a lot of great memories.
Managed to get a free holiday to Mexico on a medical trial in 2010. Went with 6 friends and had a very fun time.
I traveled around the planet from 2011 - 2013. Started in India, I traveled all through south east Asia and Japan, then lived in Australia for a year before continuing onto New Zealand, Hawaii, then mainland US and Canada.
Road tripped across the US from Washington state to West Virginia over 3 days.
Volunteered in Nepal for 5 months with a charity organization which focuses on rebuilding after natural disasters.
Volunteered for 7.5 months in Ecuador with the same price organization following the earthquake in May 2016.
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to learn from people. I studied media at university, so I really enjoy documenting places and events. Maybe I can pass on some of this knowledge.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A whole load of travel stories from around the globe, like the time I was an extra in a Bollywood in Bombay or when I jump off the worlds highest gorge swing in South Africa and everything in between!
