About Me


To engage in as many new experiences as possible and create lots of great memories!


Friendly, Outgoing, Sporty, Fun and Up for a laugh :)

Started out travelling in Asia 5 years ago and have stayed ever since.
Travelled a lot of South East Asia and a few other countries.
I currently live in Yangon, Myanmar, but previously lived in Bangkok.

I teach English and love it very much.
In my free time I like to play sports such as football, golf, boxing. I also have a keen interest in photography.

As of right I now I am on a cycling trip around Thailand. I will mainly be visiting cities in the Isaan province :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet lots of new people.
