About Me

***************************** PLEEEEAAAAASE note: ****************************************************
I get many requests, so I concentrate first
- on the personal (and not copy&paste ) requests and
- requests where every (adult) traveller has an own CS profile!
- no couch on Friday, 9th of October

You are new to CouchSurfing? Welcome ! :-) Read for the best that:

Just finished my Dissertation (PhD) and looking now for a new job as a music or University teacher. I play a bit Piano, listen to concerts of the Berlin Philharmonic, I cycle a lot, go running, love cooking (I'm nor vegan nor vegetarian), cinema, swimming in the lakes nearby, research, politics, philosophy, contemporary and experimental arts, open for more night life and cocktail bars, and allways a Woody-Allen-movie.

If you are comming from an other culture, PLEASE CONSIDER:
I have hetero, gay and lesbian friends and are fighting against the so called 'death penalty'. I believe in human rights, democracy, freedom and in using your own mind (Immanuel Kant). And swimming naked in lakes, Sauna, in generell nakedness and direct communication are here in Berlin nothing special. Please consider this all in case you write in your profile you "like to experience new cultures" - realy? ;-) And people with too many "Selfies" with V-finger or food might probably feel better at another host too.

And, yes, I'm still hosting even male CouchSurfer!!! Obviously I accepted for a while too often woman/girls that my profile gives this impression ;-) Or I got more personal requests more from the women? ...


Travelling means leaving your comfort zone and friends to find new ones and to change your life.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." (Marianne Williamson: A Return to Love 1992)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy meeting people for good conversation, a drink or dance, for cooking together, swimming, cycling, travelling and for making eventually new friends.


Music, contemporary arts and more.

Music, Movies, and Books

Bach, Schubert, Mozart, Spanish guitar, Mahler, "Breakfast at Tiffany's"/"Moon river", "Dos gardenias para ti", Monty Python, "Homo faber", Plato, Jaspers, Bert Hellinger, Lars von Trier, Woody Allen, Simon&Garfunkel, ABBA, Madonna, Bob Marley, Flamenco, Latin, ...

I'm playing clarinet and would host immediatly any string quartet to play some quintets from Mozart and Brahms!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Looking in the eyes of a great white shark under water with a distance of only 1 m! And before this my month in South Africa with working for an opera workshop in the townships.
