About Me


La Chiam!


(updated-- now living in Cape Town)

ok 31/5/17I really should re-edit my profile since I have been here in Cape Town for almost 9years. 9years... I really do love this place with a passion and hope to show you around and get a cool and fun experience. There really is alot of cool things week by week. Shoot me an email and I would be so happy to give some ideas of things to do.

Just a chilly chill guy previously from Santa Monica. Originally a Jersey kid that had a dream of enjoying some fun in sun and landed in a placed called Santa Monica, that place that I originally heard about on a TV show called Three's Company. It is really fun over here and lots of things to do. I have various hobbies and interests that scale, so I am sure there might be a thing or to that we share commonly.

La Chiam (Hebrew)- Hakuna Matata (Lion King) - Bahala Na (filipino) Take it Easy (Eagles) - Basically my fundemental philosophy is to: Live life - Apreciate it, honor it (La Chiam), Live live to No worries (Hakuna Matata) and to take it easy and do not take life to seriously (Bahala na) Dance as if nobody is watching you....
Meet , play , and love/ laugh, often......

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Met some couchsurfers in Cambodia in 07 and have been involved since. Been amazing experiences and met amazing friends along the way


Music, music, music - all kinds of music. I like going out at night. I like the beach and beach activities. Bike, skate, ski, snowboard, . Food? - I like trying new stuff, My recent experience at Cambodia took it too another level. Sports, TV, Movies - I like them but try not to go to extreme that I don't miss the other part of life.
