About Me

CURRENT MISSION

The Power of Now

ABOUT ME

My name is Beatrix. Together with my husband and two boys (11 and 14 years old), I live in Vienna.

I run a PR agency which is specialised in the creative industries, that is design, architecture and fashion. Naturally, these are the things I am interested in.

I am an open-minded person, who likes to get in contact with new people and is interested in other people´s lifes.

PHILOSOPHY

non-violent communication (marshal rosenberg)
"The power of now"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

First I want to get experience by travelling via couchsurfing. I came to this idea, because I thought, it would be more fun and more interesting for me and especially for my teenager-son to experience an new country. May be next, I also want to give people a room in my house.
