About Me


Just a simple kind of person trying to discover anything and everything about different parts of the world. I love meeting international minds, sharing stories, and understanding different cultures.


Regret what you do, not what you don't do

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted in South Africa, Ecuador and the UK but I'm currently travelling and being on the other side of stays and meet ups.


I never fail to be astounded by how amazing CS people are. The experiences I've had through it completely open your mind to the kindness of people.


Anything outside, learning Spanish, sustainability and green innovation, sport.

Music, Movies, and Books

Rock, indie, latino, and some good old fashioned Motown when I really want a boogie
