About Me

Grew up in Germany. After getting my Master's degrees in business and music I went to China in 2009. Lived first in Beijing for three years and moved to Changsha, Hunan province in 2012.
Working for a local company that exports electronics.
Very much into arts, playing piano and doing improv. Started my own improv group in Changsha, doing improv in Chinese.
Always the first on the dancefloor when there is some electro playing and the last to leave.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
