Sky was making stew while his brother looked up how much the upcoming eviction from their apartment in South Africa would cost them. Little did he know getting kicked out would put him on a track for a life he never thought possible.
What started out as an adventurous stint in Thailand teaching English lead to him becoming partner in one of the fastest growing video game companies in Thailand. Not satisfied with that turn-around, he went on to do something entirely different: Today, Sky is a dating coach for men and women in Bangkok.
In this episode he’ll not share how he transformed his career, but also himself: Clocking in at 364lbs (165kg) at one point in his life, he reveals which diet helped him lose more than 154lbs (70kg) and where in Bangkok he likes to eat out while still shedding off some pounds.
Sky doesn’t hold back: Explaining the differences in the dating advice he gives for men and women, he showcases his tactics, shares success stories and gives some specific pointers on meeting people. In this episode he reveals his favorite hidden spot for a great date in Bangkok and what dating app he has seen working best in the city.
Listen in to find out how pick-up advice in Thailand differs from other countries, what Sky thinks about ‘negging’ and how he went from English teacher to video game mogul in the span of less than 5 years.

We have a small favor to ask. Readership at Thailand Starter Kit has grown but the revenue we bring in each month hasn’t matched our running costs. Unlike many other websites, we don’t want to put up a paywall or ruin your reading experience with an overwhelming amount of third-party ads. So you understand why we need your support. Thailand Starter Kit’s unmatched, long-form guides on living, working, retiring, and starting a business in Thailand take a lot of time, money, and hard work to create. But we do it because we believe in helping expats just like you—because we are/were also in your shoes.
If everyone reading our guides helps fund them, our future as expats in Thailand will be much easier. For as little as $1 you can support Thailand Starter Kit—and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
