About Me




After many years of university I left for 18 months on a round the world trip. The travel bug isn't sated and I can't wait to get out exploring again, meeting different people and trying to immerse myself in different cultures. I'm studying and working at the moment while also looking for a job to put my science skills to work.


You write your own story. Treat others how you would like to be treated, even if they don't do the same back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


To help make travelling, feeling welcome and getting to know the locals and their culture much easier.


I've met so many different people and it has been very socially rewarding and enriching.


Travel, science, music, vintage clothes, fantasy novels, dancing/clubbing, beach volleyball, casual football in the park with friends, picnics, yum cha, TV/movies that are so trashy they're funny, TV/movies that are emotionally stimulating.

Teach, Learn, Share

If possible, try to set the mood early for a surfing or hosting experience. You may not want first impressions to play a big part, but they often can.
