About Me


Renovating my home kitchen / Making people happy with good food.


I am mad about food. I like to travel and getting to know all the specialties (food, culture) of your World. And when you are in Poznan, you probably have a chance to visit me on one of my couchsurfing-dinner-parties. Besides that I was DJing (rock/pop/indie), love to dance and watch bizzare movies (fantasy, SiFi, Horror, Trash).

Update: I moved to Poznan and work as freelance chef, culinary tourguide and in organising foodfestivals. You can find some of my works on


relax ! After a ventricular fibrillration in 2007, I realized, what an amazing gift life is. And that we should not stress ourself too much.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The regular thursday meetings of CS started in my restaurant in Poznan in 2010. I do dinnerpaties where I try to bring as many nationalities as possible together at my table.


I have not surved so much but having a huge hosting experience ! I studied at the european filmcollege where we have been 120 students from 27 different nations and whenever I needed a place to stay in other capitols around europe I just contacted one of my collegues like they do when the are in Berlin or now in Poznan. Every single experience was great , I am happy that I learned something from every single Surfer that has visited me.
In my first year in CS I hosted over 50 people. Back then I also organized many CS meetings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I survived a ventricular fibrillation. Not that it is an "amazing" thing by itself, but it changes your view on life. You see the world with different eyes.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know my City very well and can show you a lot of nice places to go in Poznan that can not be found in all tourist-guides. I have skills in cooking, design, marketing, and making people happy :-)
