About me

Just arrived in Bangkok again, used to live here, know a little of the city. I live in a spacious 40m2 studio in Lat Phrao, but with little furniture. So if you have camping mats, we could probably put 10 people in here, otherwise the couch might be ok for one person. Anyway, be welcome...

My work is on the internet, web site related stuff. Happy to talk tech if you like that sort of thing.

I spent 5 years on the road, I spent just over a year in my homeland, now I'm journeying again. Wow, it's a long time since I updated this box.

I'm very last minute, I like to keep options open because my word is my bond. If I make a commitment, it means something, I follow through, so I don't make too many commitments... :-)

My interests


I like Eckhart Tolle's books The Power of Now and A New Earth. I read mostly non-fiction.


Anything that suits the setting


I like good kick ass action movies. When I watch a film I like to be entertained. Best film I've seen recently was Shooter.On a totally different slant, I also like education films. Loose Change (download for free at http://www.loosechange.org/) had a big impact on me for example.

House Rules:

I'd prefer if people didn't bring dairy products into my home. I try to avoid consuming dairy and so I find it easier not to have it in the house. If you do bring dairy for some reason, please be sure to take it with you when you leave.
