To become a wildman in the ocean and save it.
I am a marine biologist based in Kenya trying to study and save the beautiful coral and marine life found there. I am musical, love surfing, capoeira and the best time of the day for me is cooking a big meal then eating and drinking wine with friends.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Unfortunately I still don't have my own place and am living in a tent in Kenya, but want to meet people in other places.
Until now I welcomed people to Oxford, where I was a student, and showed them around that beautiful ancient city. It was a great feeling to show visitors something they couldn't see by themselves
Everything in life! There's not enough time to do all the incredible things around! Art, music, photography, capoeira, surfing, diving etc. etc.

Music, Movies, and Books
Blues, reggae, African rhythms and much more
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Lived in the rainforest in Costa Rica in 2008 for a research expedition. Very hard, but very cool.
Lived in the Isles of Scilly for a while sailing from island to island catching fish and being a pirate :)
Now am based in Kenya in an awesome intentional community based on conservation and Christian philosophies, where I work with coral reef ecology
Teach, Learn, Share
Being a biologist, I can tell you most anything you wanted to know about the living world around us. I am a native English speaker but also know Spanish, French and Swahili. I play guitar and piano and can share that or just enjoyment of music with others
