About Me


Decide where my life is headed after graduating from uni...


Born in York, raised in York, moved away to Oxford. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics hence the profile name) and then started casting about for things to do. I spent a year in Shanghai teaching debating and critical thinking in some of the high schools there before moving back home to look for a job. I'm now travelling again until August!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting/meeting people when I can.


I've hosted quite a few people in York and met lots of good people through the site.


I love meeting new people and trying new things. If you think something is fun, I'm up for giving it a go. I keep meaning to go to salsa classes in town but never quite get around to it...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking the last day of the Inca trail to Machu Picchu.

Successfully interrailing as far away as Bosnia!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can maybe teach you to play piano or the basic steps of some ballroom dances if you want. I can do a reasonable tour of York or Oxford but since I'm in Shanghai these days that's not much use! I can cook pretty well if you're staying with us.

Countries I’ve Visited

Bosnia and Herzegovina, China, Croatia, Germany, Peru

Countries I’ve Lived In

China, United Kingdom
