About Me


Work, Live and experience


Moving to Cape Town to start a new job. I am a mixture of Persian, Irish and South African blood and I have had the privilege of experiencing these cultures which has been amazing and eye opening. I am hoping to continue pursing learning German, Spanish and French and love hanging out and talking with people who speak the languages. I am naturally nerdy and enjoy the books and learning and love playing all kinds of sports as well as learning Latin dances. But I like to get out of my comfort zones to meet new people and experience new things. I'd like to learn to play an instrument, dance more or cook. Meet new people with different ideas, philosophies to share what I know and learn what they know. And in it all I figure I have fun doing it :) !


Life is confusing, I don't like to think too hard about it, just live day by day... no stress!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Had some experience a long time ago, but keen to get involved again.


I love Football,and spend a lot of time playing it ( in real life or Fifa ) or watching it. I generally enjoy sports and do a lot of sports ( squash,rugby, tennis, swimming, running,) as well as Salsa, Bachata or Kizomba. I enjoy Math, Physics and philosophy. I would love to learn new things like learn how to dance urban/modern/afro and cook.
