About Me

Doing the male version of the Eat, Pray, Love thing. I've been travelling Europe since the 1st of July 2016, so far I've travelled through Eastern Europe, Israel, the Balkans and Western Europe. Now (in December) I'm in Asia.

My main passions are movies, fashion and most of all, watches. Lately I've taken a lot of interest in modern history, existentialism and politics.

I've been hosting on Couch Surfing since 2013 with my house mates Kurt Hopkins and Joel Weston (look them up if you want), we all shared one profile so for practical reasons I've started from scratch with a new one. Dozens of people from around the world stayed at our apartment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting people, saving money. Let's be honest.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm really really really into movies. My favourite film is Heat (1995), but Kill Bill was the movie that got me into movies. Also I'll nerd out of we talk about Star Wars, Star Trek or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The most inspiring book I've read is Total Recall.

I like music from movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visited Chernobyl, so I have radioactive pee. Hope that's not a deal breaker. I went to North Korea for New Years 2017, I can best describe that experience as "going to another planet back in time"

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been living out of a back pack for the last 5 months, so I've learned a few things about travelling on a budget.

I'm a great story teller. So I can share my adventures and give you some pointers on how to be engaging. Plus I could give an acting lesson! I can also teach you how to dress better without spending a lot of money, but I'm only an expert on menswear, so ladies, I'll just offer my two cents if you need it.

Or we could do none of that and just drink and play Xbox.
