Join Couchsurfing to see Phillip’s full profile.
Preach good football and education.
I'm a former special education teacher, current business owner and professional football (soccer) coach. I am passionate about social justice and lifelong learning, love animals, good music and the outdoors. I have a pet dog and snake, a few tattoos and a sense of adventure.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
After hosting Couchsurfers for a few years under a different profile (a shared house with 3 of my best mates), I'm going to be traveling, with a plan to be in a different country for every New Year's Eve from here on. I want to see the world through the eyes of a local, develop an understanding of how the world views my country, and share my insights of different cultures.
I am a passionate coach, and spend as much time as possible in or around my sport. I'm also interested in architecture and history, and want to see the world.
