About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explorations, adventure and strange food :)

ABOUT ME

I've always had itchy feet (and no, that's not a fungal infection). Spent a year travelling around Australia after uni, then moved to Africa for a couple of years with VSO. Turned consultant and travelled some more, on better pay. Returned to Rwanda in May 2014 to set up a consultancy company. Lucky enough to have a fabulous house and happy to share what I've got.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is a series of choices. For every choice you make, you can always make another. Pick a direction - if you don't like it, go the other way :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

In the past I've hosted a number of people, some remain friends to this day. Always enjoy meeting new people and helping them find their feet in this wonderful country.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Always had a great time hosting people. In 2011 I couch surfed my way across Europe on a writing retreat to the Polish border. Really appreciated the hospitality.

Interests

Sign Languages (I'm fluent in British and Rwandan), horse riding, travel, food, books, reading and writing. Fact is often stranger than fiction.

Music, Movies & Books

Far too many to list, and they change daily :)

If I had to choose one book: The Seduction of Silence by Bem Le Hunte.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Stood next to a wild mountain gorilla. Survived an earthquake. Been published. Driven across Australia from Sydney to Perth. Stood in the centre of Armenia's Stone Henge (Karahunj). Discovered weird and wonderful entheogens; written about them.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Creative writing, sign language and anything to do with Third Sector management (*yawn*).

Learn: New authors, good music, new recipes.

Share: Strange tales, dirty jokes and a bottle of waragi (lethal Ugandan war gin).

Countries I've Visited

Armenia, Australia, Kenya, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Poland, Sierra Leone, Uganda

Countries I've Lived In

Rwanda, United Kingdom
