make wine not war !
im South African born (Cape Town) and moved to NZ when i was 15. there i finished my schooling and went on to study viniculture (grape growing and winemaking).
i enjoy being active and taking on new challenges, and this includes the outdoors be it in the mountains or the surf. i also enjoy arts and culture and really enjoyed places like Munich and Paris which hold staggering collections of art.
family is very important to me, as too maintaining a solid network of good friends. i love hosting dinner parties and sampling beers and wines with mates. i also enjoy animals and pets.
despite "settling down" to full time employment, travelling is still very important to me. i would like to continue going overseas every couples years or so to keep the mind active, see old mates, eat proper cheese, etc. ive couchsurfed extensively, as well as hosted folk from CS.
i strum the guitar now and then, though my singing leaves much to be desired (earplugs included, i promise).
being non-judgemental and relaxed/naturally-ones-self are traits i think are key. a bright smile, honesty, and a heart for adventure are handy too.
