To dance with the wraggle taggle gypsies, O!
I am a scientist with a curious mind, currently in teaching Animal Behaviour and Welfare at the University of Bristol.
I like thinking about the world, creating art (drawing and painting), meeting new and different people and exploring new places.
Happy when walking (in cities or forests), cycling, learning, drawing, imagining or sleeping.
More about me (and my art) on my website:
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting (mostly in Bristol, but I am now living in Chester) and surfing in the rest of the world, see references below...
Been hosted in Uganda, Czech Republic, Greece, Slovakia and UK - all very good experiences. I have also hosted people from from Europe, Australia and America in Bristol and Chester and hope to be able to have more guests soon. I feel very lucky to have met some really lovely people from couch-surfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
- Every time a person shows kindness to someone they do not know and will probably never meet again.
- Being between a charging white rhino (with calf) and herd of buffalo in South Africa
- Talking to a stranger who is alone and finding they are as happy to have the company as I am.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can (and would love to) teach:
- Biology (to degree level)
- Other Science
...and eager to learn everything :)
