About Me

Environmental Scientist and landscape photographer who has backpacked SA for two years! (2018-2020)

I love editing images and have an interesting in watching movies. I love my wide range of music for which I can share my Spotify with, love the community of coffee shops in Maboneng Johannesburg where I live and can show you the streets of this city as well as the nightlife!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Just started hosting in January 2022!

I am here to meet new friends, travel with new friends, have activities together with people from this amazing platform and just create long lasting memories. Most importantly, have you to see Johannesburg like a local person from nightlife to thrift shops on the streets.
