About Me

Current Mission

I run an education organisation in Cape Town - www.code4ct.com - teaching girls coding.


I love to laugh. I love exploring. I love coming up with exciting new ideas about just about anything. I love that feeling when you're floating in the ocean and your feet can't quite touch the bottom when the waves come and you feel very small.

I try to consciously let city-days be dictated by the earth not the city.


"Don't believe what your eyes are showing you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding and you will see the way to fly." Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurfed in the US, Italy, France, Uganda and couldn't think of a better way to travel


Dancing to jazz all night in New Orleans, picking apricots in Liguria, rolling on hay bales in Tuscany
