About Me


Live with reckless abandon...and become a Medical Doctor...*


Im an adventurer at heart and love change. I adapt easily and don't mind hard work and getting my hands dirty. My interests and talents are diverse and I'm open to new challenges and experiences. I enjoy getting to know people in their every day environment and am entirely non-judgmental.


Experience the world and all it has to offer with reckless abandon, insatiable curiosity and unquenchable humour!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy a challenge and love surprises.

insatiably curious, I will try my hand at any task no matter how taxing or mundane.

I enjoy assisting other people with their tasks at hand and work well with children and animals alike.

I enjoy the outdoors and am comfortable in various terrains.


Anything from sport to art, cooking or a good book! I like being busy so little tasks where I can use my hands and expend some creative talent is ideal.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: any good action/adventure with a historical/conspiracy undertone.

Books: Adventures, wit, linguistic talent, a hidden life-lesson, myth, science, intrigue, suspense, humour...pack it all in a soft cover and I'm hooked...

Music: rock/classics, Old school/ new-school...good lyrics and obvious musical talent are a requirement!
