About Me

Meeting people, travelling and learning are what I love! I have full time work making videos at the moment... but I am also trying to have as many adventures as I can.

Gardening and veganism etc are very interesting so I'm super extra keen to host you if you're into these things


Someone said to Voltaire: "Life's hard" and Voltaire replied "Compared to what?"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

To connect with all kinds of folk and share the good things in life

For me the best CS times are sharing a yummy veg meal together and a good talk (with a spontaneous trip to swim in the freezing sea, if you're keen!)


The earth, STORIES, ART, film, music, getting to know new people & cultures, helping people, the way the mind works, reading, learning, photography, bonfires, the BEACH, theatre, looking in opshops for gems, seeing towns by bike, singing around the house, appreciating sunsets, watercolour painting, TRAVEL, LIFE, new things that I don't know that I am interested in yet..

Music, Movies & Books

I love music.. local band Shunkan, Alt-J, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The xx, The Kills, Sola Rosa, The Cure, David Bowie..
