About Me


Essentially, keeping things simple, observing the environment, and getting to know to different people, this is what I spend most of my time with.

I have a concern for the impermanence of all things; the potential to be either your own protector or worst enemy by thought, speech and action.

Besides past experiences as a cabinet-maker, psychiatry-ward carer, postman and student, I have been working with drug users, people with mental challenges and asylum seekers.

Responsible public activity with care and goodwill for others will hopefully be a part of my occupational life.


All mental reactions will arise and and pass away. If one experiences this impermanence on a physical level, the understanding becomes one's own wisdom.

Continuing the emotional mind-game of push and pull, like and dislike, we remain agitated, unhappy. Often, we do not accept situations as they are; we only accept them in the way we want them to be. Where does this lead us to?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


hosting, surfing, sharing, loving, being compassionate.


Fortunately, I got to know to a variety of beings by either surfing couches or hosting travelers.


Traveling, bicycling, meditating, vegetarian cooking, dumpster-diving, hitch-hiking, wood working, staring at the ceiling, dancing, breathing and some more -ings.

Please make use of your creativity writing a CS request! What makes your day? Please mention 'trial-and-error' or 'decision-making' as a key term for your request.
