About Me

Hey guys! Last October I packed in my job working as a pharmacist in a large London teaching hospital and signed up to volunteer for 6 months in a clinic in Malawi. I loved every minute of my time there, it was the most eye opening experience I have every had. After my time in Malawi I flew to Cape Town and have just come back from AfrikaBurn, I would love to spend more time here before I set off on my travels, hoping to end up in Ethiopia.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The one obvious downside to volunteering is that those dolla dolla bills dry up very quickly! I would also love to meet local people who know the city and give me some tips on how to spend my days!

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - all things from Disney classics to the Saw series.
Music - spans The Dave Mathews Band to funky house.
