About Me

Hello, I'm a Yale university student studying Engineering from South Africa. I love bicycling, hiking in nature, but also city vibes and night life. I'm loud, I laugh a lot and I try my best to enjoy life to the utmost.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I want to see different places and meet different people. I think staying in a hotel is too lonely, and depressing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Barns Courtney, Simon and Garfunkel, and Queen, and I love any form of indie rock. My favourite movie is Lord of War starring Nicholas Cage, and I love Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, a History of England by Macaulay, Notes from the Underground by Dostoyevsky, the Dresden Files and Sandman Slim books, as well as the Lord of the Rings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I came second in a pie eating competition.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some bits of Afrikaans, my native language, and some web development.

I wish to meet new people and learn new stories.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Jokes, a sense of fun, and an adventurous attitude.
