About Me


el camino es el destino


I love travelling and hosting other people. It's the best way of experiencing the whole world. When I am home I am working as an artist and musician. For me it is important to communicate through artistic means with my surroundings. The art gives me the opportunity to be creative and to realize my visions. Furthermore, I can express my thoughts and philosophies through the created artworks.


My personal philosophy is: the more you give the more you get - everything flows. We are all connected and we feel the joy but also the pain of other people. So I always give my best in the things I do - and the most important thing: I just do things that make sense to me. So I do also some social projects with art for example: Art for blind people or the project "With (he)art against FGM"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can offer a couch at my place and a lot of different tours and experiences in my town. Especially during carneval and summer there are a lot of events where it's great to be here.


I had so many great experiences through couchsurfing and used it a lot during the last years. One extraordinary visit was the stay at a couchsurfing host in Malaysia - he showed me an elephant park and I lived there with a local family.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are so many great things that I could see, most of them where during my travels to India, Malaysia and Spain. And others just happened here. The most amazing thing over all are small moments where you feel so connected to the universe :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show in around in the Region, can show you different highlights of Carinthia. Personal skills are wide spread - I enjoy cooking together and sharing a glass of wine. Also exploring other cultures over food would be great.
