About Me


People say I'm an austere person. I like to think about, discuss and reflect on things. I'm willed to act more spontanious and experience things more sudden :D I think of myself as an open-minded, impulsive, sometimes arrogant, but more confident and helpful person.

I live in Berlin for the moment practicing studies of architecture. I read much books on different topics that just appear to me. So there will be always some literature around. I listen to much music of diverse origin. Even do some myself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I only have some insulating mat for now, but can offer blankets, a sleeping bag, pillows and warm tea or scotch.

Berlin is a good spot to go out. I got my favourite bars and clubs to show you if thats possible timewise, but you can always find new spots and areas around here. As I'm studying most of the time I cant promise anything, but there will be some time to show you around in the evenings. I know many parts of the city pretty precise as I love to just walk into unknown backyards to take pictures and see how the city develops and lives. So, not having grown up here, I could even show you the (in some eyes) more ugly and rude, but maybe more authentic city of Berlin.


I don't have that much experience yet. I just signed up, met some people with this, surfed a couch on my way to Iceland and met some surfers on it.


I listen to music much, its a major part of my life. I also do stuff myself for some years now. you can listen to it here if u like to.

Im also interested in photography, arts, history, literature, architecture-theory and -practice, of course travelling and meeting new people from foreign areas.

Music, Movies, and Books

ah too much. You should try 'Vultures Like Lovers', 'John Roberts', 'Mountain Man', 'Middle East', 'Caribou' and much african music like 'Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou' or 'Fela Kuti','Grouper', 'Paradise Found' :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching Iceland appear out of the dark in all its agressiveness while the ferry was heading towards it.

this whole couchsurfing thing - i'm again and again amazed
