Join Couchsurfing to see Simon’s full profile.
I organise events for independent charities and community groups across the uk. Its good for my karma.
I also make websites better and freelance for music promoters. Good for my soul, karma not so much.
I have traveled around Europe, Australia and the States. I live in Bristol, the home of Banksy and Massive Attack and undeniably the coolest city in the UK: possibly the world.
I have many passions in life. From playing the guitar, writing songs and reading to movies, sports, writing other shit and visiting new places.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet cool, interesting and gracious people. Whilst im more than happy to help people out and let them stay for free in a very desirable area, if you plan to come and stay and eat my food and drinks and not at the very least pay for your own share then jog on.
Also make sure that you take the time to read my profile and personalise your request. Any generic messages will be refused immediately. Its just common courtesy people.

Music, Movies, and Books
It’s probably easier to list what I don’t like, so that would include any boy or girl bands, opera, most reggae (especially dub), side trance, and anything by anyone from a talent contest. And anyone flexing and making out like a high roller.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Spent over 4 months in hospital. Anyone who's has a series of major operations will understand what it takes to keep your sanity when incapacitated for long periods of time.
But the strength and belief you get from coming through the other side really puts all of the petty self-indulgent crap people get stressed about into perspective.
Teach, Learn, Share
I have a lot of skills in all aspects of online marketing and website optimization as well as a detailed knowledge of all areas of the music industry.
Aside from that I’m a very good guitar player and have a lot of experience writing songs. I’m always eager to learn new things from as diverse a range of industries as possible.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Music, stories, experiences, insights into different business sectors, uk customs and traditions and any of the skills listed above.
Countries I’ve Visited
