About Me


Explore the East in all it's glory


I have been told that I have way too much energy. Also, no one could ever understand how I can have this energy and be philosophical and deep at the same time. I just always say my insights and wisdom was gained by living on the edge - the very edge my vibe has propelled me to over all these years. So yeah, never a dull moment with me, but also moments of "awesomeness". Oh, I don't do drugs at all, in case you were wondering.


We create that which we ponder, we attract towards ourselves that which we feel, and we become that which we imagine... that is of course if we are really real about it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate with mostly everything with an open mind and heart, until it ceases itself and present the proverbial 'next step'.
(I hope this is a good answer...??)


I've had great experiences! In fact, I recommend this strongly to anyone who wishes to travel or just make new friends.


Clubbing, dancing, eating out, movies, reading, talking, listening, running, exercising, anime, art houses, zoo's, hiking mountains, boats, coffee, red wine, sports (especially rugby), and trying to take over the world

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Batman, Good Will Hunting, Memoirs of a Geisha, Confessions, Fight Club, Lord of the Rings, The Libertine, The Matrix... and assorted anime
Music: Classical, Dub Step, Rock, Techno, Opera, Electro Funk, Pop, House, Folk... and so on and so forth
Books: All of Nial Ferguson's books, Anne Rice, Francois Bloemhof, Sun Tsu, and so on...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are too many, because I have done and seen so much. No, really, I have. Hence why I am in the East now. I want to see and do more over here. I'm done with Africa for now.
But one of the most amazing things I've done so far in my life was the Tv and Movie shows I've done.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach anything from languages to esoteric weirdness and oddities like String Theory... I need to learn about bird names though, I reckon. But that I will do after I'm done mastering quantum physics...
