About Me


Start up my own business


I'm trying to start a business that's going to transform the health and fitness profession. I'm passionate about what I do but have a lot of other interests too.

Before this I've travelled the world from Asia to Europe. I like getting out of my comfort zone, extreme sports, running, reading, meeting new people and especially speaking foreign languages.


Live a life less ordinary.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm been both a host and guest before.


I've had a great experience couch surfing so far. The guests I've hosted have been interesting and respectful so I try to do the same.
