About Me

**Please note that I am no longer in Cape Town. I am moving around a few countries, working and travelling. If you are in Cornwall or Medellin, lets meet!**

I love discovering anything and everything about different parts of the world, meeting international minds, sharing stories, laughing, 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. 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 / eco things, and sport. Lots of sport!

Music, Movies, and Books

Rock, indie, latino, and some good old fashioned Motown for when I want to dance and sing at the top of my voice

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I quit the regular world of a 'normal' job and took the plunge into a perma-professional-travel lifestyle. I haven't put my clothes in a proper wardrobe for 3 years... and loving it :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I make a mean carrot cake, does that count??
