About Me

Originally from Cape Town, now living in Madrid and studying an MBA. Moving to Rotterdam in August 2015.

I enjoy thinking that we can make the world a nicer place, and my professional career goals reflect that. Before grad-school I was working in the fields of Impact Investing / Social Enterprise / Venture Capital in South Africa.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I used to host a lot in Cape Town a few years ago. Now I've moved to Europe and I want to make new friends in new cities.


My favourite things are people, mountains, dogs, plants, architecture, deserts, film photography, cooking, hiking and making music.
