Im am from the rainy depths of Manchester, England but have been living here in the wonderful Prague for the past 5 years where I was working as a tour guide. when Im not playing with tourists Im generally trying to be one myself, I love to travel.
During my spare time I have to say I like to be outside if it is summer, parks, lakes, hills etc... I love swimming, fire juggling (clubs and poi), festivals, psytrance, techno, acoustic/guitar music (damnit... i love music in general... either really really good music or really really bad music and nothing in between), chocolate, vegetables, water, beer, rum, dinosaurs, frogs, space and the occasional robot.
...by the way... I dont know why I have 0% response rate because normally i do reply
it's nice to be nice and it'd be rude not to...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I was introduced to it on one of my first trips to Prague and met so many amazing people through it so I continued and still to this day have only found more amazing people. I love people, which might be a silly thing to say but it is my mission to slowly travel the world and meet as many of them as possible, if I can help or make them smile along the way then thats awesome.
I studied stop motion animation and although I dont do so much of it now I still do and enjoy watching. I love to draw and more recently have begun the long process of learning thangka painting.
I like to dance with fire pois. Fire fire fire... water water water Swimming.. this sounds boring but I swam in a lake for the first time when I moved to Czech and now I want to swim in all of them. I like chocolate, vegetarian food, meaty conversations...
Music, Movies, and Books
too many to choose... All stuff weird dark and twisted but always has to be a bit funny or evoke some kind of emotion. I'll admit to crying at Bambi and laughing at Silence of the Lambs.
I love Jan Svankmajer, Jiri Trnka, Milos Foreman for my Czech heros,
I also am a fan of the Coen brothers, Michal Haneke, Eckhart Tolle, Brandon Bays, Michel Gondry, Elbow, Radiohead, Too Many DJS, Aphex Twin, Libertines, Jack White/White stripes, Placebo, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Muse, Chris Cunningham, Spike Milligan, Nine Inch Nails, Amon Tobin, Aldous Huxley, Iain Banks, Quentin Tarantino, Quentin Blake, William Blake, Robin Williams, Batman (and so I guess also Robin)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I met Jan Svankmajer.
Teach, Learn, Share
i can certainly teach you how to do stop frame animation, juggle or spin fire poi or even just help with English. I'm not the most amazing cook, I can cook but yeah... dont make me cook unless you want a science experiment
What I Can Share with Hosts
some poi spinning or club juggling thangka painting, smiles, czech or English language, im a bad cook but I can certainly assist and wash up.
