About Me


Create more freedom for me and my family to live life better. Where and how we want to, on a boat preferably.

Also trying to set up South Africa's first proper Tiny House Community. Find Tiny Homes South Africa on fb.


Land locked water & ocean lover who realized that the rat race is a very bad, soul destroying system. I am working daily to claw my way out of it for good. Like to rethink and question everything and always looking for better ways of living. Proud husband and father of 2 great kids. Want to sail forever.


Life before Death.
Collect Memories, not Things.
Family first.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Our home in Pretoria is unfortunately unsuitable for hosting atm, but we may consider hosting at a family house in Mozambique called Miramar Barra.

Would love to stay with interesting South Africans or Expats when I travel to Cape Town or Durban for work.


Still new to all this, but looking forward to future experiences.
