About Me


My mission is explore this earth, grow as a person, and create meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships along the way.


I am a young student living in the heart of Cape Town.
I love traveling, and try to make the most of each experience that I find myself in.

I am hardworking, organized, and fairly outgoing. I am always keen to meet new people from all walks of life and different cultures, and learn their stories.
I have a variety of favourite activities, ranging from sitting by a warm fire with some home cooked food and red wine, to hitting the pubs and having a great night out!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I am brand new to this!
I have hosted people before (not through this site however) but might be looking for places to stay in 2016.
I plan to take a gap year and want to explore Australasia and South East Asia.


Medicine, philosophy, sports, health and nutrition, books, music, psychology, positive psychology, travelling.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- I've bungee jumped from the highest bungee jump bridge in the world - Bloukrans!

What I Can Share With Hosts

Besides the obvious (contributing to cooking, cleaning up, etc) I carry 22 years of an enriched life with me. I am not rolling in cash, but have always found a way to create special experiences for myself along the way.
I bring the South African culture, perspective, and work ethic with me! I'd love to tell you about my home country and hopefully persuade you to visit me too one day so I can return the favour! Not that you'll need much persuasion as I am from one of the best places in the world ;)

I am not looking for a free spot to sleep at, only to move on the next day. With couchsurfing, in general I think the longer I am able to stay at you, the better. I'd love to get to know you as a person and learn more about the life you lead.
