About Me


Too see as much as the world as possible


I'm a very relaxed and friendly guy from Cape Town, South Africa. Recently finished my Masters in Energy Studies and currently doing research for the World Bank.

I like to meet people from other countries and always love showing them my city!


If not, why not?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted several people from around the world and when I haven't been able to host I've shown them around my city.

I haven't been hosted yet but I hope I will get the chance when I come to Europe in September!


So far my Couchsurfing experience has been extremely rewarding. I've made some very good friends from around the world and learnt a lot about different cultures.


There's a lot of outdoor things to do in Cape Town so I like to make use of that! I scuba, hike and trail run. I also love all the amazing outdoor festivals this city has to offer. Wine farms are always fun too :)

I also like to party and wouldn't call myself a party animal but enjoy getting out and having fun!

And of course, my number one passion is travel. I would be very happy just travelling the rest of my life :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Wide range of interests. Love indie films and cult classics. Also have a weird taste for future dystopic movies and books!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Got altitude sickness in the Himalayas

Teach, Learn, Share

I love sharing travel advice and even more receiving it. Just a bit of local knowledge in a foreign place can go a very long way.

What I Can Share with Hosts
