  • Description

    I'm a 27yr old Scottish guy currently living in Sri Lanka. I was living in Ahangama but am now moving to Abay for the season.
    I was in Sri Lanka for 6 months last year too.

    I studied Environmental Biology at uni and after graduating worked for the premier hydroponics company in Scotland. However I wasn't ready to settle into a career yet so I packed my bags and started tarveling.

    I'm passionate about nature and the protecting the environment, especially in the ocean. I love surfing, sailing and diving or just having beers with good people. I recently sailed around the Great Barrier reef on a yacht for 3 months and had the best time.
    I spent a lot of time in Cape Verde growing up and have traveled a far bit. Around West and Southern Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and the the Caribbean.
    I'm super sociable and love meeting and talking to as many different people as I can while spreading smiles and good energy around :).
    I'm very laid back and and tend to go with the flow however I'm very pro-active and want to make the most of every day. I'm sociable and thrive meeting new people.
    Life is too short to be bored!
    I have had a wide range of different jobs all over the place! I've worked on a big commercial farm driving tractors, being a wine taster on a vineyard, in a science lab growing plants hydroponically, as a hostel manager, a cook and a barman.
    I love all animals!
    I like being fit and strong so I try to eat only awesome veggie food and keep active and physical every day by running, yoga and surfing.

    I'm an open minded person so if you have any questions please ask away. Peace!

    I travel with my bagpipes! (traditional scottish instrument) and they normally get a good reception as most people have never heard them before.
