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 is my passion and my life and I hope to find new inspiration and gather footage for music videos on my travels.
The chapter of life I'm in now is all about looking after my health and trying to be the best possible version of myself.
I don't smoke, and am a vegetarian. I live in Bristol, U.K. currently, which is a pretty cool place. Its a city full or artists, good food and good beer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Friends of mine who have extensively traveled, have been told me about, and about how useful and opportunistic it is to meet great people, stay sheltered and save money.
Also I have a bunch of cool stories and ideas that I would love to share, I'm easy-going, polite and chilled, so thought why not give it a go!


Improvised jam sessions with musicians I've just met, nothing makes me more interested in the present moment. In close second though I love to cook good food for people, and learn from people cooking for me.
Songwriting and meditation are my top interests of the mind.
Cycling and boulding (rock climbing) are my top interests of the body!
Spirituality is a huge thing in my life, and has dictated my path so far. Yet I have a very rational and scientific perspective, so I'm super interested in learning about the philosophies of people I meet.
Empathy is a big thing for me, I have a lot of it, this has lead me have a great interest in body language.

Mostly though I am interested in seeing cool/crazy/epic stuff whilst on the road hahaha!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In September 2016, I played a charity concert at the Movie Garden in Pokhara, Nepal. To raise money to go towards the rebuild of a school that had been destroyed in the 2015 earthquakes. We raised enough to purchase paper, pens, pencils and white board markers etc for all the kids.
