About Me


Living with an open heart


Burmese and Portuguese by blood, I've lived most of my life in England, in and around London. The past couple of years I've been half travelling, and half living in Melbourne, Australia. Right now I'm catching up with my wonderful family and friends back in my home town, before heading to America for five weeks of spontaneity and improvisation in Chicago, followed by a month of clown school in Boulder, Colorado.


I love the rain and the sun the same. If I stop loving Mondays, I'll quit my job. I don't often drink, but I'll always dance.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted a few folks in London when living with my pal Ben who introduced me to the concept, and loved it. Attended some CS events in Melbourne and became great friends with many people in the community.


Sock wrestling, guitar, ukulele, singing, busking, dancing, improv, Thai massage, yoga, teaching yoga, Acroyoga, soapmaking, slacklining, contact juggling, snowboarding, trying new and unexpected things, hugging my friends, laughing with friends, eating cheese, inventing stupid games and silly songs.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My first time in Mexico, finding myself caught in the midst of 10,000 masked, machete wielding revolutionaries in a protest in San Cristobal on the 10th anniversary of the Zapitista uprising.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn and teach yoga. Practice Thai massage. Play guitar and ukulele and sing...busking sometimes depending on where I am in the world. Acroyoga. Theatre improv jams.
