About Me


Start having fun while keeping my job


I'm a scatter brain that talks a lot more than most people.

I'm also apparently brutally honest, and will never be able to steal from anyone. Personally I don't know what is so brutal about being honest, and probably won't steal cause to do that I need to lie.


Used to be fun. Don't do anything that you don't find fun. I think I should change back to that, since now it's complicated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've joined the South Africa group and do try to answer people questions on my cool country.
If you don't get Hijacked, it is one of the coolest paces to be.


Heard that it's awesome, and it sounds like a great idea to me. Again my first day, so I can't really say.


I'm a bit interested in everything, but can't think of anything cool right now.
I'm busy with a Bible school course, but think after my management course I'll change to fashion and dancing. I also need to do an art course sometime.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Mainly funny movies, Chick flicks and children movies are great too. Loved Avatar.
Music: Most music genre's are cool. My PC will have a song on that you like. Though I haven't put anything on it the past 10 years, so it needs to be a bit out of date.
Books: I prefer fantasy books since that take your mind away from the current world. Currently reading Dan Brown as well as Terry Brooks mainly, with some other writers in between.
All time favorite writers are Raymond E. Feist, and John van de Ruit

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Disney World was the awesome to me. Maybe since I was only 13 years old.
Hon Kong Disney was also great, and there I was a grown up.
The 2 days in Lisbon was just to short. I felt as if I could get lost in the antique art museum.

Teach, Learn, Share

I tend to have a rather vast uncommon knowledge. I don't know why, but I remember all the unimportant things in life.

Obviously being an Electronic/Computer engineer, there will be some electronic, programming, engineering and mathematical skills will be above average.

Countries I’ve Visited

China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe, Tanzania, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

South Africa, Zambia
