About Me


To discover the truth, then tell everyone about it..


My sense of humour and boredom with routine guide me. I love just talking to people with interesting ideas and fun, adventurous spirits.


Not my entire personal philosophy but what i'm keenly aware of, is that life is actually quite simple - there are only two real choices. I'm an optimist. You can guess what the other choice is..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Like everyone on this site, I love travelling and the slightly off-beat types that seem to do it. It's not about offering a couch. I offer you the opportunity to experience life here, hanging out with my friends, hiking, surfing, going to music festivals, clubs, and all the great festivals going on in and around Cape Town that make it such a cool place. At the same time, we don't need to be glued at the hip and you should have some other more touristy things planned on your own or with other travellers. My friends are also hosts, so it's easy to find other people also wanting to do something. I love good food and good alcohol, so i'll show you my Thai and Indian cooking if you show me yours ;) Bringing a small bottle of something unique to your country and you score extra points ;)


I've met some very cool people that are now just great friends that I hope to hang out and party with again.


Hiking, partying, reading (books that expand our understanding of the world and offer different viewpoints). If it's interesting, I'm interested. How's that for an excuse to this question.. :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Love Brett Easton Ellis books and read lots of non-fiction. Like all music except house and punk rock.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once dived into a swimming pool of wine after crashing a quad bike into a vineyard. not my finest hour, but funny as hell.

Teach, Learn, Share

Cape Town is home to some of the best wines in the world, if you want to learn about local wine, definately give me a call. I believe in experiential learning ;)

Also I'm learning Spanish, so if you speak it, that would be cool.

Countries I’ve Visited

Botswana, Egypt, Israel, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Swaziland, Thailand

Countries I’ve Lived In

South Africa
