Im am from the rainy depths of Manchester, England but 5 years ago I left, firstly to live in Prague then to start to travel further and longer. I love traveling.
I love to be outside, swimming, fire poi (kind of juggling), festivals, psytrance, techno, acoustic/guitar music (i love music or many genres... either really really good music or really really bad music and not much in between), chocolate, vegetables, water, masala chai, voska, dinosaurs, frogs, stars, magic, kaleidoscopes, microscopes...
...by the way... I dont know why I have 0% response rate because normally i do reply but not if you send me a really impersonal request.

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 love this style of art. When in a new city the art galleries are normally one of my first visits. I love to draw and more recently have begun the long process of learning thangka painting.
Playing with poi and juggling is a big hobby of mine, maybe I can teach you. 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
This is hard to say. Your life is what you make it, all of it should be amazing.
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 (if you come to prague when im there I can introduce you to the community there) smiles, czech or English language, im a bad cook but I can certainly assist and wash up.
