About Me


make roots! films! music!


I am an arts graduate from the UK. Before my studies I travelled and worked for two years and still have the urge to see more and more of the world. I like passing through places but i also like settling somewhere new, really exploring a place and meeting new people in a longer lasting sense! I am currently working Susaki City, Japan as a language teacher.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have been rather quiet in recent years, but have hosted, staying and met many people in the past and would like to involve myself again! Could possibly host in my flat depending on work but I am more than happy to meet up with people too!


I have used couchsurfing a number of times in a number of ways! Back in Cambridge I used to host and had many lovely people come and stay! I have been a guest a couple of times (once in Milan, once in Tunis) both wonderful experiences! and have met countless folks for a good conversation and coffee!


I love film and music. and spend a fair amount of time working on my own projects in both.
