About Me

I've spent most of my life in the most beautiful place in the UK, Cornwall, living not too far from the coast. I write, play and record songs, and have studied songwriting and music in general for many years. Writing music is my passion and my life and I hope to find new inspiration on my travels.
I LOVE to party and meet new people, human beings are wonderful creatures. Learning is my favourite thing to do!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have been told about Couchsurfing by some friends of mine who have extensively traveled, I've heard how useful and opportunistic it is as a way of experiencing culture in a way you can't do in a hotel, whilst also saving money.

Also to be a host and to offer your hospitality to a stranger from across the world requires great humility and selflessness, much respect to you all.


I love spending time with people, watching face expressions change when someone is telling a passionate story; feeling someone empathise with another; the complexities of body language and the truth that is always revealed in eye contact.

I love to write and record music, lyrics, poetry, short stories.
To play my own songs on stage and connect with the audience, is when I am at my most calm.
I love to learn about ancient history, cultures different from my own, astronomy, and all areas of science, particularly synthetic biology.

My greatest interest in life is philosophy. I have spent many years pondering and pondering, ruling out any ideas without substance, and I have thus far in life come to my own conclusions, but I am aware that these conclusions will change as I continue to learn throughout life.
I would take great pleasure in conversing with someone for hours about philosophies and what they mean.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This website contains recordings of many of my songs from the last few years. I hope you enjoy!

I would never say its amazing, as I believe in being humble, but it is all I have that's close to it haha!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you songwriting and singing techniques.
I can teach you how to drink rum like a Cornish pirate!

I want to learn everything I can, particularly the most intelligent new philosophies in your culture, and how the ordinary persons lives and thinks and feels.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share with you my stories, my time and my love.
