About Me


Complete a Marathon under 4 hours ( Manchester April 2018!)


I'm a easy going and sociable 26 year old guy, and I love learning new things. At the moment I'm living in Manchester working at Kellogg's trying to invent new cereals!


Tolerant and Liberal, try to be opened minded as possible as i'm from a mixed background.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When students in Bristol, we always loved to host. Living in Jakarta it was much more about attending and enjoying joint CS trips and events, and now I'm back in London I try to meet up with people when possible but can't host in my tiny shared flat unfortunetely.


I've hosted people from all over the world, have yet to surf at anyone else's but plan to in the future.


Food and cooking is something I love to do, I know I need a lot of work and have been meaning to take lessons for years but have never got around to it.

I love sports, having played rugby from a young age. I also play squash, badminton and will try everything else. I've recently got into running and use it as a way to help me explore new countries as well as sleep well at night!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm happy to teach English (I used to work as an English teacher in Jakarta) in exchange for learning other languages. I'm always interested in learning how commonalities and differences in languages can identify human cultural evolution.
