About Me


Evaluating less, observing more.


Hi. I like: picnics, late night conversations, walking at night, connecting with people, being real, eating egg sandwiches, telling and listening to stories, language, balls and hats.


"Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing there is a field, I'll meet you there." Rumi poet. I live for that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I baaaaaah. (Like a sheep)


Bueno. Couchsurfing is close to my heart at this stage. Mainly as the goodwill of the people i meet for some strange reason never ceases to leave me amazed and sometimes even stunned! Stunned by the goodness of people?? What has society been teaching me all along. :-)


Cooking, psychology, sports, interviewing people, free writing, philosophy, society, empathy, hitchhiking, playing soccer, gambling, N.V.C, acting, diversity, repelling mindless norms.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent 9 weeks hitchiking in the summer of 2010, mainly in Scandanavia. The experience of hitchhiking and the human exchanges i've had with people on the road has been one of the most uplifting, hopeful and joyous experiences of my life. The world is full of good people.

I've couchsurfed :). Thanks to all the special people that i've opened my door to and that have opened their doors to me. The life, the vitality, the wonder, the curiosity, the diversity - all wonderful gifts.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can share: Some tools for compassionate communication, some sports psychology concepts, how to dumpster dive.

Would like to learn: how to evaluate less and observe more. About improvised theatre and acting in general. A new language, like Spanish, German or French (open to language exchange partnering).
