About Me

I have been living and working in Sydney as an Architect for the past three years!! I am eager to meet couch surfers again as I have been offline for too long...

I was born in Kenya and I have traveled extensively for half of my life, although there is a time coming up soon where I will be traveling solo for over a year to all the countries that I have not been to.

I love listening to music, exploring the world around me and learning about different cultures. I believe that you can learn something new from each person and this website is a lovely platform for that.

I enjoy the arts, drinking coffee, the beach, movies, people, places and food!

I am very friendly, down to earth, honest and open minded. I love having great and meaningful connections with people and learning from each other.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people that have similar interests and are open minded!

I have been couch surfing since 2010 when I met some people in a hostel in the Philippines and instantly I became addicted to it, not because of the hosts but the community aspect of sharing.

I have made some incredible friends through this platform as well as a number of strangers who have helped me through my travels and I have done the same back.

I do believe that the world needs to share more kindness and love with each other as a community.

[I will start hosting in January after the holidays!]


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.
