About Me


Do one thing every day that makes you barf.


I'm trying to experience as many facets of life as I can before I get too old to want to sleep on the ground anymore (this may be never). Basically, I want to have cool stories to tell when I'm 80.


Be positive, relax...Give away most of your stuff. Try to make yourself as interesting to yourself as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted some amazing people in Seattle and Cape Town, and also repaid the favor by staying with people all over the world. I think couchsurfing can impart the magic of human kindness, respect, and curiousity. It also happens to be a super cheap way to see the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - Anything, really. Currently listening to a 1960s soul mix. But rock, folk, rap, country. Actually I don't really like criticizing music based solely on genre (i.e., "I dont like rap music", full stop). If you stay with me, be open minded in that respect, please.

Books - I like the classics, Dickens and Tolstoy and Somerset Maugham are some of my faves. I'm trying to read more South African writers since I'm in country, nonfiction as well.

Movies - Good movies, classic movies, kitsch movies. My roommate is a producer and runs a film festival in town so we always are surrounded by good film.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I walked from Mexico to Canada one summer...that was pretty amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some photo skills, take you rock climbing, take you surfing, hiking, trail running, or whatever you want to do outdoors in this amazing city. I like to cook - I'm very very keen to cook with anyone who stays with me.
