About Me

Traveller, botanist, analyst.

Currently in Los Angeles for a few months

Equally at home in a tent on a mountain, sleeping on a bus seat or trying (and failing) to ask for directions in whatever city I'm in at the moment.

"The lack of good reason not to do something is an excellent and compelling reason to do it."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Experience about the natural world, trade languages and bake the best brownies your oven has ever seen (unless you're a chef, then teach me something cool).

I host when I can and have slept on a lot of couches through couchsurfing and otherwise. I've had nothing but great experiences meeting people with all sorts of world views.


Natural Sciences, the outdoors, treking, rock climbing, cooking, regional and local food (especially that found on the streets), good music (debatable), esoteric subjects, avoiding life´s responsibilities.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Fallas festival in Valencia, Spain: Multistorey sculptures, fireworks, street parties, firecrackers, great food and roaring infernos. I died and went to a noisy smokey flame filled heaven...
