About Me


to travel the world with music and to use music as a way to hold a mirror up to the world.


I'm a very adventurous person and I feel alive when I am travelling and meeting people. I have been a street musician for 3 years, living in Berlin and following the sun as much as I can. I love collaborating with other artists and finding new and interesting ways to perform.


If I had to label my philosophy, I would be a pantheist, as it is the philosophy that best describes my way of thinking. I am in constant pursuit of achieving as much empathy as I can for every person I meet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love being able to see new cities through the eyes of the inhabitants. I love the concept of exchange and the trust involved in letting a stranger inhabit your space. I am lucky enough to have been welcomed into quite a few homes around the world, and I have had very special experiences doing so.


I love music; creating and listening. I love dancing; finding good gigs and having crazy jams. I am a complete pyromaniac; I used to earn a lot of my travel money from doing fire performances with poi. Now I do so through street performance and festival gigs. I studied photography at school and love documenting my travels with analog photographs.
Other interests include; thunderstorms, shooting stars, full moon and an excuse to go crazy, leaving my window open for peter pan, dreaming big, making missions, following yellow brick roads, eyes, listening to anyone's story, strange abilities, giggling for hours, climbing up high buildings and dancing for hours.

Music, Movies, and Books

My all time favourite author is Haruki Murakami.
My music taste is very eclectic - anything that makes my heart swell.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Playing in Palestine was really special to me, as I was playing to people who don't often have musical visitors from far away.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook, to talk shit for hours with a glass of wine, to exchange ideas and skills.
