About Me


A musical Adventure: From Austin to New Orleans then follow Route 61 up through Jackson, Memphis Nashville, Chicago etc.... Holy shizzle nizzle I'm excited!


English guy living in Melbourne since 2012 (freaking love that city) and now I'm on another mini-adventure.

I love learning everything and anything, experiencing music 'out in the wild', philosophical & psychological chats, learning swing dancing & making friends to keep.

Self employed creating music festivals & digital experiences, with a ton of stuff thats getting me crazy excited : Music, UX, Festivals, Tech, Psychology, Education, Entrepreneurship, Adventure... Can't get enough of that shizniz.

I like to think im a good guy, Easy going, open minded, upbeat and always up for something new!

I'm always up for meeting new people, having fun, listening to some great music, learning something new and generally enjoying life..... Chats, concerts & adventures are much more my style than nightclubs, endless parties or


Have fun, stay open minded, never stop learning, try my best to find solutions to mine and others problems whilst striving to hurt as few people as possible.... Never be ashamed of your ideals and respect others may be different.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I only dipped my toe in last time I travelled & the same back in Melbourne (boring housemates :-P) so this is my chance to Jump in and when i'm back i'll be hosting 10x as much to make sure i repay the favour.


Great CS experiences surfing briefly in Melbourne, Shanghai & Russia & hosted a couple of incredible people in Melbourne.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music:- honestly anything & everything, but everyone knows thats not an answer.
Favorite Genres would have to be Acoustic/folk, Indie and Alt Rock but definitely not limited to that. Big fan of bands like Bon Iver, Radiohead, , Show of Hands, Lumineers, Mumford and Sons. Not a big Metal or Acid Trance fan.

Movies- I try to watch alot of films, firm favorites: Blow, Shawshank Redemption, Memento,

Books: big fan of Fantasy but recently just been reading recomendations to 'broaden my horizons' Favs include: All Raymond E Feists books, The Dark Tower series by Steven King, Clockwork Orange, Perido Street Station by China Mellvile

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cavern diving in Mexico, no fish but just an indescribably magical experience.
A series of short hikes in Antarctica.
Watching Bon Iver play.. just emotional
Watching Jonsi play.. crazily emotionally driven music with amazing visuals

Teach, Learn, Share

Currently on the hunt for something to teach...
