关于我

I meant to study economics/journalism but took a summer job at 18, dropped out of college, and ended up a computer programmer instead. Overall, I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I love to spot the similarities in the world as much as the differences.

I'm a fervent coffee drinker and someone who's always up for a walk at any time. I have no discernible circadian rhythm; I stay up late but can fall asleep at the drop of a hat. And I never get jet-lag.

I am pretty obsessed with motorcycles and the fixing thereof. I've owned everything from a tiny scooter to an Italian superbike. I have a vintage 1976 Honda that I brought from Canada to England. It is a money pit, but I love it.

I really like treating both guests and hosts to at least a coffee or a drink. Couchsurfing for me is mostly about socialising; in my job I work from home and I don't see others much, so I love getting to chat with folks :-)

我为什么加入 Couchsurfing

People!

My job is a bit socially isolating in terms of in-person interaction; I work from home all day and I travel around a lot. Pretty much the only person I regularly see is my girlfriend--who is great but you wanna talk to more than one person, you know? Plus she's often travelling too :-)

I'd like to hang out with people who understand I'm sometimes up for being social and going out and other times might be travelling whilst under a crunch time at work and might be quiet. If you can respect my need to work I promise I'll find time to socialise and pay back the favour :-)

兴趣

Mostly I like to ignore clocks.

I love motorcycles and scooters. I don't have to commute thanks to my job being remote but I ride to relieve stress and explore all the places trains, planes, and my feet alone can't take me.

I'm into coffee, cocktails, beer, and other such trendy things. I enjoy live music a LOT and will go see a show just for the fun of it. I like walking around at night and being the sober person at a party.

If you're the quiet type I am apparently a good storyteller; if you've got wisdom to impart I'm all ears.

我做过的一件不可思议的事情

Most recently I sold a lot of my things, put my motorcycle on a cargo ship, and moved from Canada to the UK--to a city I'd never been to where I knew no one.

教,学,和分享

I work as a computer programmer so I can talk about technology (though I can't fix your computer!)

I love learning about how to make my profession more diverse and talking about how others can help.

I care a lot about remote work and city planning.

I'm bad at languages but I long to get better.

I know a lot about the oddities of British homes! ;-)

我可以与沙发主分享些什么

I'd be happy to help out around your house, take you out for dinner, help cook, and/or talk about whatever we both fancy.

I'll probably insist I buy you a coffee/beer/tea/glass of wine! It's my treat for your generosity! :-)
