About Me


I am here to have a good time! Work hard play hard.The world is my oyster and I want to explore every corner, nook and cranny and meet every type of people.


Time is Art...I love to eat, drink and meet up with friends and family. I practise juggling and/or yoga daily. I am interested primarily in performing arts and festival culture. I watch films and listen to even more music and I love the outdoors.
Generally speaking I follow my path and let what ever happens take its course. I am here for a good time, provided it can be combined hard labour and positive results.
Life is theatre and we have to embrace the story.


Work Hard but only if you enjoy what you do otherwise it is a big fat waste of time.
Be creative. The more creative you push yourself to be the more creative you will want to be.
Be aware of your boundaries.
Make strong connections with people.
Each one teach one.
Finally love your Mother Earth it is your home!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have spent a lot of time travelling and surfing. I have only hosted on a couple of occasions and intend in being more active with hosting when I return to Scotland.


Gaining more and more experience. India The Americas. Europe and hopefully a lot more...


Performance in any shape or form. Any circus stuff. I perform with fire by playing, Diabolo, Devilstix, Staff, and Poi. I perform at outdoor parties and festivals.
My love is to devise theatre and performance based workshops. Of which I want to gain more experience.
I love cycling around and out of town. I play Capoeira at a beginners level but I am always learning. I especially like new and exciting adventures what ever they may be, especially travelling, hiking and snow sports both skiing or snowboarding .
