About Me

Unfortunately the last couple of years my time was very limited and could not spent any time on CS. Now that I have more time I will try and show people the hospitality I received during my travels in Europe.
Me and my wife recently moved to Paarl to further our careers, me in sales of a new startup and my wife as a medical doctor. We are both fun loving and try to be active on our days off from work.
We enjoy the great outdoors and the sports that comes along with it. We try to go camping as much as possible.
We enjoy the company of travelers and the stories they share.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have traveled through Europe using CS and had the time of my life. Meeting amazing people that became close friends. I would like to get that same experience to fellow surfers, however struggling to find time in a busy work schedule.


I am interested in traveling, sports, politics, cultures and the great outdoors.
