About Me

six foot 2, brown hair, athletic, permanently hungry, yawns a lot

I work as a historian and am currently studying for a PhD. Additionally I also
tour guide in London so anyone visiting whose interested in seeing London properly, please check out my company: Great fun tour on traditional English Bicycles!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Im back living in London but still love talking to travellers, and living a little bit vicariously.

I currently have a spare room at my house, and a few sofas, seems a shame to let them go to waste really. Plus it all helps store up some good Karma.


Rugby and sports in general- both watching and playing. I watched live both the rugby world cup final in 2011 and British Lions tour games in Melbourne 2013 which were amazing. A lot of my future travel plans revolve around getting to amazing sporting events: The Olympics, test match cricket games, maybe take in some college football games?

History and culture- hugely eclectic historical tastes and interest currently studying a masters in Sports History. Also tend to seek out museums wherever I go and love finding proper local history wherever I go.

Massive Theatre junky, both musical and serious and go to the West End in london at least once a month.
