About Me

Hi there!

I'm Steve from Scotland. I'm mixed race half-English, half-Singaporean, and grew up in Scotland. My background gave me an appreciation and desire to experience the diverse cultures of the world.

I've just moved to Graz, starting a new life and job here after several years living in SE Asia

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet interesting people from different cultures and make new friends.


Salsa dancing, travel, fitness, yoga, hiking, diving, running, swimming, cycling, skiing, photography, movies, art, languages...

Music, Movies, and Books

Eclectic and diverse! Depends on my mood. Generally anything with a good beat and rhythm for dancing, or chilled out for listening. I've been a salsa dancer for over 18 years so any Latin music is great too 😊

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Recently visited North Korea. Such a fascinating, isolated, crazy place where the Kim dynasty is worshipped/feared/loved.

Dived with manta rays in Bali. Really awesome and magical experience.

Hiked the Inca Trail in Peru. Breathtaking panoramic views of ancient ruins, mountain ranges, and stunningly beautiful night-time sky.

Teach, Learn, Share

Love dancing and can teach salsa. Native English speaker.
Hablo español bastante bien, aunque viviendo aquí no hay muchas oportunidades para practicarlo.
Ich lerne auch Deutsch.
Et je parle un petit peu de Francais.
