About Me


Having the maximum fun I can get out of life!


I am an open and extravert person, always enjoying meeting new people. I'm laid back, ever optimistic and enjoy a good laugh. I would rate myself quite outgoing, I like hanging out with friends or going to a bar for a few (or more) drinks. Furthermore I'm self employed (co-owner of a small software company (4 workers).
Together with my two (friendly & lazy) cats, I just moved into this great apartment in the city center of Groningen. It's quite a big an really bright place. There's a big spare room always completely empty. That's a shame, isn't it?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My new house is a little big for me, so I'm happy to provide an actual bed for those who need one.


Really nice way too to meet different types of people and learn about other cultures. So far, all surfers were very friendly and relaxed.


I like hanging out with friends, listening to music (jazz, reggae, old soul, singer songwriter). I love nature and long walks.
