About Me


To take Edinburgh Fringe by storm!!! To get the world talking about SEX!!!!


I've lived in Cape Town for 7 years, by the beautiful sea and under a gorgeous mountain, however it's time to get back out into the world.
I've written a 1 woman comedy called LETS TALK ABOUT SEX. Audiences love it here, and I worked hard to make it a balanced play that appeals to both Men and Women.

It's my dream to bring it to Edinburgh Fringe this year and get started on a tour around the UK.
This is all exorbitantly expensive, especially hiring a theatre for Fringe, so I am appealing to couch owners in Edinburgh to help me start on my proposed world tour!

I'd be at the Fringe for 27 days, and of course I wouldn't expect to stay in one place for the whole time....God forbid one outstays one's welcome! So a few couches in Edinburgh is what I'm looking for.

I'm normally an early to bed quiet sort of person who likes to snuggle up with a book, but I'm assuming doing the Fringe will mean late nights and recovering the next morning.I'm not a drinker though, (pathetic 1 drink wonder, so I don't bother anymore!) so don't worry, I won't be a drunken pain in the arse.


I create my life, every second of it. I take responsibility for it and I'm determined to have an extraordinary life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I've only just joined so I have to make freinds etc and I'm house-sitting at the moment in order to save every penny so I can't even offer anyone a couch in return yet.


I love movies and reading, I can read a book in a day I get so absorbed. I'm not a clubbing kind of girl, I prefer to really connect and get to know someone than idle small talk....euugh!

Music, Movies & Books

OOOOH way too many to put down now, Shantaram is probably the best book I've ever read. I try to see a movie a week and just really enjoyed '500 Days of Summer'
Music is where I fall down, I don't know much about any music after the 90's

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Diving with seals off the west coast of Australia, they're so playful, it's almost like they were daring me to copy all the somersaults they were doing... I was exhausted afterwards.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hellerwork Structural Integration (I'ts like the SAS of deep tissue work)and I can teach anyone to walk with the grace of a runway model. I also do Reconnective Healing.
Oh and did you know there's an Expanded Massive Orgasm technique!!!!!
