About Me


find inspiration in berlin for the next chapter in life


I recently finished my degree in England, for which I studied History. And now I'm in Berlin, hoping to stay well into next year and get my German language skills up, while seeing what Berlin has to offer and seeking some new directions.

Ultimately I want to work for charities and NGOs which work in/with the development area of sustainable agriculture. But the path toward this career is uncertain at the moment!

I've always felt that true enlightenment comes from opening oneself to different people and experiences, which is the reason I have joined CS. I hope that many great times blossom from this site.


Give me ten years to fill in this box. I'll get back to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurfed the wave of friendliness and so far only hosted the surfers of friends, which is how I found this site.


I've helped friends to host in the past and the chance to experience a world outside of your own (while sitting on your couch) is something which cannot be downplayed.


Cycling, Homebrewing, Book collecting, learning new things, attempting to learn more German, a bit of photography.

Music, Movies, and Books

In Bruges will be a modern classic of its age. Of this I am sure.

Books, well for example Hell's Angels by Hunter S Thompson is a great book. I think I enjoy books which show a world (especially non-fictional) which are on the edges of society- or simply ones which the normal person has no access to normally. Sometimes couchsurfing experiences can lead to encounters with these worlds!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing that I remember doing was visiting the Himalayas. Being amongst the mountains in that way was very humbling and awe-inspiring.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach a bit about bikes, beer or english, or a combination of the three. Though it would be dangerous to mix all of them at once!

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Nepal, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland
