About Me

South African media professional now living in Japan. I am looking forward to exploring the great world while also meeting great people along the way.

After working as a full-time Journalist in South Africa for five years, I decided to do a stint as an Assistant Language English Teacher (ALT) in Japan in order to travel more and live in different surroundings.

I love sports, trying new experiences and travelling to new and unique places.

I joined this platform as I do believe that there is no better way to experience travelling than to interact with locals and to get their advice on local spots to visit and on things to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is a great way to gain more authentic and natural experiences while also meeting great people.
