About Me

On a working holiday in the UK starting June 2022. Double vaxxed, and not a party person. Gender non-conforming, person living with mental illness, and currently going by the name Cheviot. I’ve also been told I’m kind, intelligent, and funny

PHILOSOPHY:

Honesty, open communication, kindness, and authenticity. Oh and of course CORRELATION DOES NOT IMPLY CAUSATION

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Had some very unusual friendships budding out of this so keeping it open whenever I’m ready to invite in a bit of the outside world

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: HMHB, Mother Mother, Lindisfarne, and most things Northumbrian pipes... Still on a mission to collect local songs & folklores in good old Northumberland... Personal favourite right now: Redesdale Hornpipe/Proudlock’s Hornpipe/Hesleyside Reels/Sweet Hesleyside compilation by WyrDGeneS

Movies & Shows: open to explore anything with a bit of depth and wisdom in it. Definitely more interested in independent films than Hollywood stuff

Books: Most things involving trauma and recovery, or social movements against oppressors. Hoping to dabble more into Indigenous literature

I can write half decent stories if I can be arsed to actually write them

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Fairy Creek Blockade. Building a community with the amazing land defenders and de-escalating conflict with law enforcement. Also locked myself in a sleeping dragon and (almost) got arrested. Did I mention I played the bagpipes on the frontlines?

Teach, Learn, Share

That would depend on who you are really. I can cook, I can deal with difficult people, and I work with difficult teens for a living.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food and recipes. Some dark humour and lessons from recovery if you’re into that sort of stuff. And if I feel safe enough, a wise, grounded presence

Countries I’ve Visited

China, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Canada, China, United Kingdom
