About Me


Currently living in York pursuing an MA in Contemporary Literature. Couchsurfing has been put on the backseat as I cannot really host at the minute.


Current Post-grad in North of England.
Used to be part of a couch surfing trio, then it was a duo.
Now am flying solo.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet the odd surfer in the North, but it's pretty quiet at the moment due to studious obligations.


Re-engaged as of now.


Music, films, books, more books. Playing the guitar (but only in private as therapy). Occasional writing.
