About Me

26yo Global Citizen who spent half of his life in China and the other half in South Africa. An ambitious, creative and enthusiastic spirit who is having a human experience. I am the hybrid of an artist, a cook, a critic, and a deadpan comedian.

I love being around with optimistic people, whether the glass is half-full or not I will drink from it. The age gap between my mind and my actual age is pretty scary, but I am child-like in my imaginations. I think in pictures and sometimes I dream in music.

Travelling allows me to experience our world in different perspectives and it helps me to make friends around the world. I love to explore the cultural side of a city, sampling local cuisine at food market than to dine at a posh restaurant. Going to drink at a local pub rather than going out all night partying.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To make more friends around the world, allowing people to show me the most authentic parts of their cities. "We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us."
