About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Snowboard, see a bear.

ABOUT ME

I live in Brighton again. Just been in Canada for a year, was awesome, now all I do is work climb and drink. I want to always travel and discover new moments, I'm serious about my career but when this involves travelling as well I will be very happy.

PHILOSOPHY

visited 27 states (12%)

met an amazing French girl at the British Film Institute, I spent a few hours talking to her and now I have no idea where or who she is but she said 1 thing that I will always remember, "The 2 things everybody should do in their life are travel and have psychoanalysis"
Couldn't agree more.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hoping to use CS to meet new people as I travel and recipricate the kindness when I am at home.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfed in Montevideo, Uruguay, was a great experience. Emmaunelle was a brilliant host, showed us round the city, and his whole family was very welcoming.

i have also met a lot of people in my home city of Brighton, this has been a great experience, awesome way to make friends with interesting people.

Interests

Films, Films +Films and photography and so I guess anything that involves a camera I will probably be massively into. I am a freak for knowing what is happening in every part of the world even if I haven't been there, and everytime I host a dinner party (frequently) I try and make something that represents my particular cultural obsession of the moment. The theme for my last leaving party was nations: guess that says it all.

And any sport that involves a massive adrenalin rush/risk of injury (and football(soccer)).

Music, Movies & Books

Films are a massive part of my life, mostly European ones (not so much British more like Bergman, Antonioni, most French people who have made a film and especially foriegners who make films in France: Haneke, Kieslowski, Ophulus). Argentinian cinema is blowing my mind at the moment as well.
Like music but rubbish at remembering it! Read loads mostly non-fiction about current affairs, or not so current affairs, reportage (cos this is what I want to do.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Not sure how not to write forever in here, but perhaps witnessing three thunderstorms and a sunset simultaneously on Christmas eve in the remotest part of Paraguay with Ali Bell takes the biscuit.
