About Me


My girlfriend Emily & I are working on building our businesses and slowly visiting every country of the world!


I'm not 'from' anywhere

I was born in Bristol, England and then after 3 months I moved to New York, New Jersey, Texas, Arkansas, Florida and wound up in Georgia. After eight years in Georgia, we escaped the millennium and moved to Manchester, UK.

At 16 i went to my first festival, Glastonbury, and bloomed into the happy man i am today

A brief spell of non-hogkinsons lymphoma (cancer) in 2006 made me appreciate life to a level i never did before. I took only positivity from that experience and I'm happy to talk about it if you or someone you love is going through it! Every day is a something I might have missed out, so life is good

Lived in Manchester since 2007, studying politics, philosophy and economics whilst entertaining myself and others in festival and club circuits. I do kids parties, I travel alot, like meeting new people and trying new things and just enjoy being happy.

I moved to Australia for a year but returned to Manchester where I met Emily, who has become my girlfriend and business partner.


you can like or dislike, it's your choice...

so why so serious?

the world is a beautiful place, see as much as you can and have as much fun as possible whilst bringing all the happiness and beauty you can to it during the process

always remember that you can either change something or you can't. If you can't, get over it

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted MANY people, I've surfed myself once, try and meet up with fellow CS'ers in foregin lands for fun and adventure :)


I've had many folk crash on my couch, shown people the city of Manchester or just met for drinks. Every person has been a pleasure to spend time with!

Surprisingly I've only surfed once, but it was a great experience :)
