About Me

CURRENT MISSION

www.hongkongpubcrawl.com :let the entreprenurial juices flow by helping backpackers party..

ABOUT ME

Um...i think im pretty friendly and relaxed about most things. i like meeting new people and exploring new places. enjoy laughing at myself, as i inevitably do something stupid..enjoy playing rugby (and wish i was a whole lot better at it) Have always loved Asia and would love to speak Mandarin...fingers crossed. Have spent the last 3 years living in London, which was all good. STOP THE PRESS!!! = Now living in HK and adjusting to life in the "Hong Kong Island Bubble"

PHILOSOPHY

People are inherently nice and decent. "good things happen to good people, (even though sometimes it may take awhile..)" LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

first stay was in Bahamas with Jeremy, great experience, got on really well with him and all of his mates! Also crashed with Viola in Montpellier, France. Hopefully the start of many experiences, both hosting and recieving wonderful hospitality...

Interests

Meeting new people, travelling, food!!!, Rugby especially but all sports, reading, have i mentioned food?

Music, Movies & Books

Mark Helprin and Tim O'Brien are wicked authors. I love Phillip Roth! Zadie Smith,Paolo Coelho is also slowly seducing me and i cant get enough of Conn Iggulden and his Caesar/Genghis Khan series..even if they are trashy airport novels!Gabriel Garcia Marquez: although i have to concentrate hard because its like reading poetry and im not very smart like that.. Music: Bloc party, Fugazi, Green Day, Wu Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, Gomez, Beth Orton, old school punk: minor threat,biohazard,talib kweli, ..i like heaps of stuff! Movies: I dont get to see enough, but "No country for old men" was alright? "Heat" or most things directed by Michael Mann.except miami vice though = far too long. "Magnolia" by Paul Thomas Anderson was fantastic, as was "Boogie Nights" in fact pretty much everything he directs! just saw "Chungking express" and "infernal Affairs" as well, i Love good HK cinema! The last batman was cool, in fact i think Christopher Nolan may possess the midas touch as well!Ang Lee is pretty amazing, "Lust, Caustion" took me breath away. and may well be sexiest film ever.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i saw the sun come up over Angkor Wat a few years back, that was nice? then i got to go and fire some machine guns..(does that ruin the moment?),this is a tough question, I have been fortunate to see a tonne of amazing things...(i will update this answer when i can think of something more poignant to add!)

Teach, Learn, Share

um...my mum says im a good hugger? does that count? I like listening too and talking with people...
