About Me

⚠️⚠️ Just a disclaimer here as I get a lot of requests which I end up turning down. I only host people who have experience in CS with multiple references, are 26 years and over, and I don't generally host during the weekends. I only host for 2-3 days generally. So trying to save you some time :) ⚠️⚠️

If you're hosting:

- I will work around your schedule and expect nothing from you. It would be nice to have some time to get to know you but your generosity to offer is already a lot in my books! I always love giving back in some way as well.

- unless very busy i will always do my best to get to know you and spend time together. It would be nice if you also wanted to get to know your host.

Now on to me:


I live in Malta and in my free time I love gardening, making music (guitar & electronic), design small games and cooking. When out I'm into hiking, climbing, diving, kayaking and just plain exploring places and new experiences. Oh and I work as a game studies lecturer officially.

I consider myself quite social, love convos about the things that move us and challenge us in life and less interested in small talk, passionate about sustainability on our planet and environmental activism.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to travel and developing new connections. I use couchsurfing because I believe there's something beautiful in sharing, hosting and being hosted by others. We can learn so much from each other and the connections & friendships you can end up with are priceless. There really is no price tag on that :)


Art, particularly modern and contemporary.
Music creation - electronic music, electric guitar and acoustic
Outdoor activities including hiking, cycling, climbing, kayaking, and exploring nooks & crannies :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walked around Komodo Dragons on Komodo Islands, Indonesia

Dined with locals next to a huge bonfire during Easter in a small remote village in Southern Germany

Walked inside a waterfall cave behind Seljalandfoss in Iceland

Kayaked and dove around the beautiful caves in Comino, Malta.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Deejaying, basic Guitar, electronic music production, basic gardening tips and basic Maltese!

I'd love to learn any instrument, and jam with someone great at guitar (if I'm feeling confident!). Learn about gardening techniques, new plants and so on.

I can share traditional Maltese recipes as well as a plate on the table if I'm cooking.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A double bed in my house in Birkirkara, Malta :) Sheets, pillows included as well as an ironing board if you need one.

I can generally offer my time and presence and i may show you around if I have the time. I always let guests know what my situation is when you apply.
