About Me


Survive uni; Meet interesting people; Get a job; Travel the world; Save a few lives


I am a former student of Finance, Management and Economics.
I value my friends and I absolutely love making new ones as well.
I'm a pretty honest, modest and kind-hearted guy, I would like to believe.
I also have a fondness for intelligent discourse, good music, good food, board games, partying and good people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed on two couches in London for 3 nights in April 2012, and it was a fantastic experience - something I can't wait to tell my friends about - cause they all perceive it to be weird and unsafe, whereas really given the right host and the right guests, it could be an experience of a lifetime.


Singing, acting, organizing things (I am an MS Excel freak!), social work (I volunteer for charities at every opportunity), swimming, Basketball, gymming, following English Premier League football and making films.
