About Me


To seek out new life and new civilizations...


"Our positive personal relationships: The only currency we really need to accumulate. Inspiration, work and choice follow that." fd (Kidneythieves)

When I travel I usually like to mix it up a bit and get involved with organisations such as OXFAM or WWOOF.
My favourite destination is Japan, I've travelled there more times than anywhere else.

Originally from England, but spend as little time there as possible.


Be good!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can sometimes offer a spare bed, but I usually participate by arranging meetings or joining events.


So far, so good.


Music, movies, games, cycling, trekking, climbing, kayaking, flying, poker, bass guitar, urbex, environment, wildlife, self-sustainability, food and drink (Most certainly drink!)...
East Asia. I have been studying the region and learning Japanese for 3 years.
Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, can't beat it!

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a big fan of movies and try to watch a few every week!
I can appreciate music from almost any genre (death metal, screamo, cheesy pop a bit less so). Mostly metal, rock, jazz and country at the moment! (KORN is the band I have seen the most)
Reading wise, pretty much anything by Robin Hobb. Superb fantasy without the usual old staples of the genre like dwarves, elves, etc.
Always had an interest in video games since picking up my first joystick on the Atari 2600. I find it hard to turn down a good RPG or RTS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed Mt. Fuji, snorkelled Cairns, surfed Sydney, shooting Arizona...

Teach, Learn, Share

Anyone who has mastered or trying to learn English. I have been studying Japanese for years and I'm always eager to learn more and practice! I keep trying to become decent at Bass guitar, need someone to practice with! Business ideas, theres always a niche out there.
