About Me


To sample the worldy buffet of geographical delights.


I'm a footloose roadrunner. I like to help out where I can and learn as I go. I'm pretty inquisitive and love to learn new things. I like a good party just as much as a good book. I do odd-jobs here and there, with no official occupation. However, I'd love to make a living from composing soundtracks one day.


Try and live the life the way you'd like it to be read.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Participating in CS Gatherings; information exchange; spreading the word of CS.


Limited, but growing. I've done hostels, couchsurfing, wild camping and slept on a bunk in a travelling Chinese Junk (which was pretty awesome). I'd really like to have my own place one day and host weary travellers.


Tea, Music (composing and improvising), theatre, books, exploring and travel, films, non-fiction, cultures, food and drink, languages... if we talk, we'll probably talk all night!

Music, Movies, and Books

Big music fan. I am a Composer & performer in my spare time. Electronic, Classical, Acoustic, Weird and far-out experimental stuff, radiophonic, soundtracks.

Books? Well, I always enjoy expedition/exploration literature.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to help with your English if you could help me with your language. Also, I'm handy with a piano and theory, so an exchange for guitar lessons and other trades would also be extremely welcome.
