About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To conquer the world by travelling

ABOUT ME

I am currently a student at the university of Stellenbosch. I study electrical and electronic engineering with computer science.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe our time on earth is limited and we should have as much fun and experiences as we can. I am very open minded to different cultures and views on life and ways of living. I believe life should be as simple as possible. We should work to live, not live to work.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

At the moment I am but a poor student. I have no house yet so I can't offer a couch, but I plan to travel a lot while being a student. Once I get a job and house I will have a couch available to all. My parents did say they might have a place available though.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am new to the site, no experiences yet.

Interests

Music, movies, travelling, hiking, swimming, drinking, electronics, puzzles, dancing, eating and experiencing new cultures. Any good party.

Music, Movies & Books

Books - Fantasy is my favourite. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Sword of truth series by Terry Goodkind, books by Raymond E. Feist.
Movies - V for Vendetta, Amelie, Inception, any animation, Shutter Island, Monty Python!
Music- besides the mainstream.. Regina Spektor, Silversun Pickups, The Klaxons, Imogen Heap and lots more.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I experienced all of Europe on a Contiki tour this year. Many great experiences there.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am studying engineering so I know a lot about electronics. I also know a lot about computer programming. I used to be a swimmer, so I could teach people to do that properly haha. I could probable teach you about South African foods and culture too.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

South Africa
