About Me


Don't have a couch sadly, but more than happy to meet up with locals and people visiting the capital!


I am a 29 year old sub-editor who works for a national newspaper and hails from the North East of England. I am very keen on meeting new people and gaining new experiences. I love to meet interesting (sometimes crazy) people and i am fairly open minded.
A big interest of mine is Electronic music. At home I produce some (its awful though). I'm also bang into politics and current affairs, and I'm looking to enter into newspaper journalism in the next year or so.
I am also on a quest to better myself and to travel and experience the world. Im easy to get along with (i think) and i try not to be judgemental.
My wife and I live in Kilburn, north west London. Its a nice area, and even if I can't host still hit me up!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I stayed with a woman from Brazil called Cristiana. It was a wonderful experience and I was sad to leave the place. After being there, i realised that couch surfing was a great way of meeting new people and experiencing the travel experience from a different angle.


Particularly interested in electronic music, sunshine, people, reading, writing (awfully) politics and foreign policy. Like anyone in their 20's, I also enjoy getting inebriated and having a laugh.
But most importantly, my lady is my biggest "interest", she gives me reason to get up in the morning!!!
