About Me


I am not hosting until late January. don’t like setting this tone, but requests that ignore my hosting preferences will be ignored. Easy going, hospitable single professional in London on a mission to meet interesting people and enjoy life. Iv'e been active in CS for the past year or so and have made several good friends through it. I like having company and hearing about people's travel experiences. My only requests are that you read my profile and hosting preferences before enquiring and please communicate any changes of plans . There are fewer and fewer hosts these days, and the reason is we are feeling burned out from travellers who treat us as free hotels.


Very passionate about rugby union. Coach and still play a little at the (very) social level) I like travel, the outdoors and sport of all types. Gay (and straight) friendly. Note that group memberships are indicative of my interests - not requirement for guests. You don't need to be a gay naturist golfer to stay at my place!

I've become a bit burnt out on Couchsurfing lately. People treat it like Freebnb and have no qualms changing their plans at the last minute. I must now insist on courtesy from people who request to stay with me. If you cancel without a good reason. I'm going to write a review. if you request and then disappear after I accept, I'm going to write a review.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a few people over the past year. All have been positive experience.


Just had my first experience as surfer, and it was great. It gave me a new appreciation for the community.


Sport, film, travel, cars..the usual boy stuff
