About Me

I run a health-tech business which uses AI to speed up the drug development process. The conviction that I can’t die before having had a significant positive impact on the world is what has been motivating me pretty much my whole life. The company is all remote so I have a digital nomad type life style.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing provides a uniquely sparse context enviroment within which to meet people, it lets you step out of all our everyday mindsets and just experience some new people. I have found that within couchsurfing I can make a good friend within 2-3 days while in my normal life would take several weeks - months.


Meeting people that are different from me; Mountaineering; a myriad of computer related interests;

Some Series I like:
Tuca And Birdy
Planet Earth (or any David Attenborough)
