About Me


To survive.


Very polite, well mannered and interesting, with excellent hygiene!

My main interests are music, political philosophy, judo/bjj and the Japanese language (when I can be bothered studying).

I've lived briefly in Vietnam and I lived in Tokyo for over a year. Mostly I've lived in London.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet humans


Music: my favourite composer is Ligeti and I regularly listen to Dhrupad. Don't worry if that means nothing to you.

Judo/bjj (self explanatory)

Philosophy: libertarianism and anarchism in particular.
