About Me

My existence was established in 1991 and is the prime example of what happens when boredom meets a broken condom. I always think of the right thing to say ten minutes too late, I'm rather funny to look at, please laugh at my not very amusing jokes, because I'm too sarcastic to tell jokes, life for me is one big laugh anyway.

In 2014 I left home to travel around the world, working/volunteering/hitchhiking and couchsurfing along the way to have an adventure for 3 years. Now I'm back Manchester :) to enjoy the city life and to build a business in e-commerce with my partner.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet open minded people to share experiences with whether it be a coffee in town, a hike in country side or a party :)


Occupying a barstool with a beer and talking until I lose my voice.
Hanging out with friends. Cooking and eating Indian food.
Dancing on a spot for 8 hours straight at a techno party.
Underground nightlife, techno parties, live gigs.

I love keeping fit; kick boxing, jogging, swimming, badminton, yoga. I'd like to practice more meditation.
But I also love biscuits, chocolate ice-cream and scotch.
I love people who don't themselves too seriously, down to earth and outgoing spontaneous and open minded :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Show me a good movie! I don't watch too much TV, I think I'm the only gay who doesnt like RuPauls Drag race US.
I love, house, tech-house, techno and all that. Anjunadeep. Anjunabeats. My favourite band is Above and Beyond. Seeing them play their acoustic set live at the Sydney Opera House made me cry. Live music, indie bands in pubs are always good :) so pretty much anything depending on my mood or environment :)
Books - Currently reading about e-commerce to help with our busness. Sapiens, Homo Deus, 1984, Anything Khaled Hosseini to name a few favourites.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Consumed over 5000cal of food from 12 meals when I was stoned in Amsterdam :) The weed was great. The food was better.
