About Me

***Currently only accepting guests from 24th - 30th August***

I am a chemistry (and general science) teacher in a secondary school. I am from Basildon in Essex, but I have also lived in Paris for 1 year (where I learned broken French), Florida for 1 year, and Bristol for 8 years. I now live in Manchester with my boyfriend.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Being able to travel on a budget is important, so I'd like to help people out, and I hope others will be able to help me in return. I also like meeting people and sharing interests.


Lindy hop (swing dancing), hiking, cycling (beginning to mountain bike), cooking, folk-ish music, speaking French when I can, reading when I can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Kayaked in the Ganges and watched not one, but two dead cows float by.

Teach, Learn, Share

You "teach": French (help me practice). Anything else.
You learn: Lindy hop. A bit of non-professional cooking. Anything else I can!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would love to cook for my hosts. I can show them a bit of Lindy hop dancing, or take them to a dance event if one is on.
