About Me

Hi, I'm a chilled out guy who is succumbing to a life of adventures and exploration. My day job, if you can call it that is, is as a PhD student, building robot models of ants. So far my research has taken me to Spain, Sweden, Japan and Australia but that's not quite enough... But in my other life I'm an experienced bike mechanic and cyclist adventurer! I love the outdoors but still happiest with my friends or meeting and helping new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm hoping to meet new people on my travels around the world, but also to welcome them to my home.


Bicycles, but I also know some car mechanics
Baking bread and cooking food with friends
Photography and the visual arts in general
Various odd, obscure and less-obscure books and films
I suppose I have to admit to liking robots, and being in the process of setting up a robot-related start-up
