About Me


At the moment I live life like a Amsterdam Clark Kent / Superwoman. During the weekdays I teach at the UvA with my glasses on, while two nights a week I throw my glasses in the corner and go to work at a nightbar.
I love the combination of these two "lifestyles" as it gives me the chance to further develop my knowledge on the field of Neurobiology and teaching, while as a bartender I can enjoy Amsterdam's crazy nightlife and the interesting characters it brings. So whatever side appeals more to you, I'm sure we have lots to talk about!


“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” ― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mostly hosted people here in Amsterdam, but also surfed in Antwerp, Berlin and Mongolia. Best way of traveling, period.


I've studied Neurobiology. So what happens in the brain while we function like we do. Definitely don't mind talking about these kinds of subjects, but don't think all I do is think about how I'm thinking.. ;)

Besides talking about brains I love traveling (who doesn't), hanging out with friends (who doesn't), dancing, walking my dog, cheese, painting, talking to strangers, and looking at trees.
