About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel the world (starting with Europe) and play and sing in as many cities as possible.

ABOUT ME

I'm a man. I have a lady. I have 3 girls. I have 1 boy. I have a guitar. I have a computer. I have 2 horses. I have 2 dogs. I had 3 fish (last time I checked). I have a bit of a cold. I have an interest in playing football. I have the inability to string long sentences together.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm very new to this, but am keen to get involved more. Love the idea of no one ever having to go to hostels ever again.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet, apart from sharing homes in Berlin with other Couch Surfers.

Interests

Music, sport, kids, photography, travelling and experiencing new cultures. I like to learn new languages, but as I get older it gets trickier! I also LOVE whales, dolphins, sharks and porpoises and I could sit on a shore for hours and hours in the hope of seeing a black triangle out at sea.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: ONCE. Anything with Zooey Deschanel in it. Monsieur Hulot.
After that. kinda depends on my mood. World Cinema. Sometimes I need to just switch off my brain and immerse myself in a romcom.

Music: Bell X1, Anything Ben Gibbard does (including Zooey), Anything Glen Hansard does, most things Conor Oberst does, David Ford, John Mann, Violent Femmes, Belle and Sebastian, Decemberists, Waterboys, Iron and Wine. You get the gist.

Books: Tend not to read much although currently reading The Dukan Diet. Trying to shift a few wobbles.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Nothing will come close to helping give birth to my children. Babysitting for a week in New York was a whole lot of fun too.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you a few chords on the guitar/piano/mandolin etc maybe some Dutch or English, how to cook stuff, help with songwriting etc.
I could show you the ropes with your social media too. Twitter/facebook etc, bit of photoshop/graphics etc.
I'd also be willing to learn all of the above a bit more.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I've Lived In

United Kingdom
