About Me


To keep my eyes on the stars and my feet on the ground.


I have a twin (we have a secret language).
I used to think I could fly until I jumped off a swing and broke my arm.
I have a priceless smile and think smiles are living, priceless art.
I sometimes wish that I could only see the world in black and white.
I believe that poverty and the rich are of the same spirit.
I have a photographic memory.
I have a dream that one day I will ride a blue whale and surf the biggest wave.
I have a star named after me from a girl who used to love me.
I connect with people because I care about their souls.
I would give my life for someone I 'hardly' knew.
I see the ordinary in the extraordinary.
I wish that you could somehow chose the path of your dreams.
I have a great story-one that is being written by the minute.


I have a free spirit, and live my life by the FIVE P's : Passion, Perspective, Practice, Patience and Persistence

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love hosting, surfing and meeting all sorts of people and what you give, you receive...


Life is beautiful and CouchSurfing proves that strongly by linking me with the world and the people out there...


Being spontaneous and discovering new things constantly, the perfect photograph, priceless art, funny people, a great surf session, sunrises and sunsets, moments that you never forget, oranges, backpacking and being free, talking to strangers, laughing endlessly, the wind, the sand and the ocean.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have fallen in love on a train, climbed the highest mountain in Kenya and nearly fallen off a boat whilst cage diving with great white sharks.
I have seen a million sunsets and sunrises and still each one a different feeling.
I donated blood and ran a marathon for someone.
I think it is amazing that the word amazing sounds like 'a maze'...
