About Me

Though I may be trained to be a fashion designer I don't believe in its fixed nature. I believe that my talents and creativity are gifts that should be explored and tested in any environment. That is where I get my drive from, a Nomad with a sewing machine.

Other than that I am pretty much a nice friendly fellow who enjoys a good time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have generally started on my travels as an artist attending residencies far from where I live in South Africa and at times in places that I have no links too. Who would have thought that my first residency abroad would be in Iceland, it is therefore why I feel that it is important to build a couch surfing network.


Football, I am anew avid Liverpool supporter (sorry if I disappointed you). I am also into the arts and street culture. People and obviously design but I am a lover of food too.

Music, Movies, and Books

Mainly hip hop, electronic and house but I wouldn't say I am a enthusiast in either books or movies.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I come with a wealth of knowledge from South Africa of which I am always willing to share. My career has just begun and my work has always been influenced by new cultures , I have embarked on an adventure where the fashion designer / artist evolves through nomadic experiences leaving you with a piece of me and I in return take with me another puzzle piece in my development as a young African artist.
