Join Couchsurfing to see Tom’s full profile. It’s free!
To see as much of America as possible.
Laid back, fun, terrible at writing descriptions of myself.
I graduated from university two years ago, having gone straight from school. After that I worked for two years - at a record label, in recruitment and started my own company.
Having closed my company down I'm taking some time off to see America, which I've wanted to do for a long time. After that I'd like to work in advertising or account management.
This is the best of all possible worlds.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've just joined CS in an entirely selfish attempt to find some cool people to stay with in the USA. After my trip I plan on hosting as much as possible. I've hosted couchsurfers through friends before, and loved it.
I've been lucky enough to have people staying on my sofa (English for couch) from Denmark, Romania, and many other places and have always enjoyed it.
Music (live & recorded, also playing badly), sports, history, walking, writing and lots of cooking is about it I think.
Music, Movies, and Books
I enjoy most comedies, listen to a lot of hip hop, punk, alternative rock, house music and folk/country amongst other things.
In terms of books I think Bukowski is my favourite writer, but also have a soft spot for Carl Hiaasen, Martin Amis, Mark Twain and Voltaire.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Probably the best thing I've done or seen is visiting the Blasket Islands off the coast of County Kerry in Ireland. They are a tiny group of now uninhabited islands that until the 1950s, held a small community of fishermen, storytellers and poets.
Other than that, it's probably a wide number of concerts and festivals. I've been lucky enough to see many of my favourite musicians live.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm interested in learning about social, cultural, musical and anthropological history of wherever I am. And whatever it is that makes you excited and enthusiastic.
I can teach cooking, basic guitar, some history of art and antiques-y stuff, and a myriad of useless facts you never knew you didn't need to know.
