About Me


Floating from Africa towards Asia, via Europe


Born in Singapore, then grew up in Canada. Lived in Europe for a couple of years, then a few fantastic years in South Africa. Spent 2012 travelling overland through Africa with my partner, and now about to move to Asia (Hong Kong) to start a new job.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Started couchsurfing with my partner in Lagos, then continued surfing through Nigeria, Cameroon, Congo-Brazzaville, and Congo-Kinshasa. Haven't been able to host much yet, but we did have the chance to host our Kinshasa host for Christmas Eve in Paris!


Travelling, doing lots of activities, eating delicious food, drinking wine and cooking (often at the same time), spending time with family and friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gazing into the crater of an active volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo, visiting the otherworldly sights of the hottest place on earth in Ethiopia, sleeping at the foot of pyramids in Sudan, riding the iron-ore train in Mauritania, and many others...
