About Me


To conquer the world by travelling


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


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


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.


I am new to the site, no experiences yet.


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

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.
