Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just moved to Berlin.
I plan to join a large CS-house that where we will host couchsurfers continuously. I'll post here once we have found a place we like and moved in.

I like meeting new people, and organizing parties for friends. Fortunately, I have very good friends that live in different parts of the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

Magic realism: Murakami (sexy, all), Marquez (all), Blindness by Jose Saramago.
Bendis & Maleev, a synesthesic experience!
Short stories: I really like those. Papini boldly argued that one must write badly, but his story 'the clock stopped at seven' is a masterpiece.
Try Murakami´s short story "100% perfect girl". It´s online!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Won a short-story national award while still a teenager... and never wrote a single line after that!

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, France, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In
