About Me


To meet cool new open-minded people from all over the world, and expand my horisons through the sharing of cultures and interests...yeah, that seems to be the just of it.


Outgoing, Spontaneous. Thrive on meeting new and interesting people.


Treat others the way you would like to be treated.
What goes around, comes around.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've only hosted twice so far, but it was an absolute pleasure. Work keeps me pretty busy, and I like to play the tourguide, so my schedule dictates my couch-availability a lot. It all, unfortunately, depends on timimg.


Rock Climbing, Outdoor Festivals, Music (guitars, bass and drums - bit of a traditionalist).

Local music enthusiast...

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Anything honest and real, with good acting and a good script. Obviously the ridiculous, brash comedy never hurts either.

Music: Mostly good ol' Rock 'n Roll. From the old stuff all the way to the new.

Had the pleasure of meandering on the Camino de Santiago in 2008 - 5 weeks and 800kms.

Shook Nelson Mandela's hand in 1996 when he visited my primary school.
