About Me


Using the Andorran ski season to provide a means to slide down the white slopes of the Pyrenees and hopefully meet some interesting humans along the way.


Recent graduate of a Bachelor of Science in Electro-Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cape Town with 18 months of work experience in South Africa's newly established renewable energy scene. I'm a big fan of science but also love discussing the alternatives. Always motivated for anything different that will linger in the memory banks. I'm easy going, love to keep it simple and always try to surround myself with diverse a crowd as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think that travelling should be more than just finding yourself in a foreign place but rather meeting and involving yourself with the people who call it their home. And what better way to do that than through Couchsurfing?


If its different and peculiar I'll love it! And then the obvious ones; music, more music, sport, literature, engineering, history. These also tend to change on a daily basis.

Music, Movies, and Books

I not much of a favourite type of person. So instead of leaving a dreadfully long list I'll choose an album, a film and a book that will easily entertain me on a deserted island:
Consolers of the Lonely - The Raconteurs
Lock Stock and Two Smocking Barrels - Guy Ritchie
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent five days traversing and hiking through the Northern Drakensberg Mountains, taking shelter in caves from hail storms, confronting wild horses, getting lost, finding our way, getting lost again, repairing blisters with duct tape and conversing with Basotho smugglers.
