About Me


try to life and promote a way of live independent from money


Two days before the Chernobyl disaster, I was thrown into life at the coast of the Baltic Sea. I experienced the German reunification as a small 4-year-old citizen and then lived in and around Rostock. After longerish stays in England, Sweden and Iceland, I live now in Vienna, Austria.
I have been making music since I was a child, and since my youth, I've been committed to sustainability and human rights. At the moment, I'm committed in the Austrian student's union.


Sustainability and Human Rights are in the very centre of my agenda.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Taking part in the exchange. Hosting and visiting people.
Generally spreading the word of the couchsurfing mission.


both hosting and being hosted. Always had a good time and met some amazing people, of which quite a few are now good friends of mine.


I love playing the piano, creating music. This is, what you can call my passion. Furthermore, I like to take photographs and to hike. I'm interested and commited in politics, esp. in environmental issues and human rights. I also love travelling (and wwoofing), being reduced to myself and a backpack.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

too many to decide which one to pick. A Craigslist ride from Denver, CO to Reno, NV through the night and desert or a similar experience driving up from Reykjavik to Isafjordur in the Northwest of Iceland. Hitching to Tromsö, Norway and working in Lappland and getting to know Sami culture. Meeting people I hosted in different countries. Gigs I played. A lot of things, really. We'll get to talk about them soon enough.
