About Me


Studying and always planning my next summer vacation


I studied social anthropology and am now doing my masters in political science. I did two exchange semesters abroad in Oslo, Norway, and Ottawa, Canada, and now hope to close that chapter of my life and start a new one - trying to make it a freelance journalist and photographer.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I surf, I host, I can be your tourist guide if you want. Just tell me shortly why you're coming to Vienna and what you like to do. If you are just searching for a couch to sleep for a night I'm probably fine with that. I'd love to hear a good traveling story though!

I had many great surfing experiences around the world and I try to keep the balance between surfing and hosting.


Overall positive! Had a great time traveling and couchsurfing the U.S. Met many people who've been hosting so many people that I almost felt embarrased not being more active.

One weird experience I had - ask for "The Bethlehem story" :)


Social and cultural Anthropology, journalism, photography, being outside...

Music, Movies & Books

Wim Wenders, Emir Kusturica, Woody Allen,... I like good political feature films like "The constant gardener" but can't stand horror movies!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Crossing the red sea by dhow with a group of Somali, Afar and Yemeni people after being in Somaliland, the peaceful part of Somalia. It took twenty hours and I fell asleep on a swinging wooden boat looking at the stars and listening to the waves of the sea while the captain behind me was operating the wheel with his feet.

Countries I've Visited

Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Italy, Mozambique, Poland, Somalia, South Africa, Yemen, Zimbabwe
