About Me


Seeing the world


Im friendly, sensitive, well travelled and adventurous. I started travelling as a baby, and Ive been living abroad the last few years in cultures very different from my own, mostly for furthering my university studies. Although friendly, I am also somewhat shy and serious minded. I love to travel in order to learn about the cultures I am visiting, and it helps me to better understand the international situation.


There is a paraphrase of Immanuel Kant's Golden Rule which might read, 'Treat all people, either yourself or others, as an end and never merely as a means', which is a good ideal to aim towards since I feel that our society, particularly in the West, has lost sight of such values.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Id like to help people out and make friends with them when they visit. I have hosted people in my home whom I had met while travelling, and it was a great experience. My fiancé lives near me so we would show people around together.


Im new in couchsurfing but I have hosted people in the past who I met when travelling, and have sometimes been invited to the homes of local people as well, but this was a spontaneous thing, and very amazing.


Travel, reading, writing, hiking, cycling, ancient history. I am presently writing a book and screenplay which is one reason Ive been recently living in certain regions of the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like books by Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden and Nelson DeMille. Tony Barrett (my former professor) including his "Caligula: The Corruption of Power". I like both classical music and rock and heavy metal. I read extensively, I love music and am musical myself, and I am also quite interested in film.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being stranded at an oil rig in the Arabian desert when the bus caught on fire. Having the Arabian desert hotel site in which I was a manager being overrun by scorpions and then also by snakes following a flood. Overland travel between Thailand, via China and through Central Asia to the Middle East and then on to the UK via continental Europe

Teach, Learn, Share

So many things which Ive learned from extensive travel and university studies, reading, and mixing with people, that Id love to share.
