About Me


Still Learning to Be of Service


Scotsman currently living and working in Turku. Love to travel and meet new people (happens almost daily with my job). When I am free, love getting away to the seaside or mountains or just jamming away with friends (literally) - I play jazz and blues (keys).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I believe hosting, entertaining (and feeding) a genuine traveller - irrespective of age, gender or sexual orientation is a very special and precious thing - therefore I very much enjoy being part of the CS community.

Please note it is in the spirit of CS to spend at least some time with your CS hosts/ guests. Provision of a free bed without any interaction is unlikely, however I do appreciate circumstances differ from person to person.

Also, I will be reluctant to accept any requests not submitted via the specifically designed CS Requests tool.

Finally, generic, or 'copy & paste' requests, addressed to no one in particular, normally have a zero chance of success. So will any group requests where at least one of the parties does not have either a profile or a photo - I prefer to see in advance who I will be hosting and spending time with.


People, music, travel, languages, psychology, European affairs.
