About Me


Hi, my name is Dan, a 23 year-old guy currently travelling around planet earth and looking to have a genuine travelling experience by couch surfing.

I'm interested in anything artistic - particularly cinema, visual arts and music, and am an audio engineer by qualification but not yet by trade. Someday I hope to work in the creative industries, perhaps as a graphic designer or in the film industry.

My passions include martial arts (Tae Kwon Do), guitar playing, and in particular photography. I enjoy reading and am currently trying to read the top 100 of all time. I dislike ego, and overly loud/crass or needlessly immature people.

My travels thus far have taken me through Asia and Australia. I am now headed for New Zealand and South America before I go home.


More important than any amount of money is legacy. To leave ones mark on the world and influence future generations is my ambition.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's time for me to admit that I'm completely new to CS. I heard about it through word of mouth and knew it would be a great way to travel and meet people who actually live in the countries I am visiting as well as a great way to learn about the places I'm going.

Guitar playing,

Photography (one of my favourite things to do while travelling), The Arts in general.
