About Me

I like challenging myself, trying out new things, meeting new people and learning new things all the time. I don't believe in borders and nations but in people. And while I do follow politics and news in order to get a better understanding of how our world works I don't like to think in groups of nationalities, religions or social classes.

You could call me a utopian and I get fairly romantic about a connected, unified world. :)


"Play from your fucking heart!"
- Bill Hicks

Some other interesting quotes that strongly resonate with me:

Benjamin Kapanay: My heart always told me that people are inherently good. My experience suggests otherwise. But what about you, Mr. Archer? In your long career as a journalist, would you say that people are mostly good?
Danny Archer: No. I'd say they're just people.
Benjamin Kapanay: Exactly. It is what they do that makes them good or bad. A moment of love, even in a bad man, can give meaning to a life.

- From the movie Blood Diamond


"I can accept anything, except what seems to be the easiest for most people: the half-way, the almost, the just-about, the in-between."
- Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead


"€œTo say 'I love you' one must know first how to say the 'I'."€
-ۥ Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead


"€œA creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others."
-ۥ Ayn Rand

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to connect with new people with unique characters and interesting perspectives and Couchsurfing allows for wonderful encounters. Getting to know people from all over the world helps us appreciate the diversity of life and I'm very thankful for these opportunities. :)


As a filmmaker I'm obviously a film geek and I'm now learning animation, character design and artistic anatomy. Moreover I love music, art and design and I'm also fascinated by technology and how it affects our global culture.
Healthy living and body awareness are important to me, which is why I greatly enjoy doing contact improvisation, tai chi, yoga and contemporary dance as well as running. :) And I'm vegan.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There have been many amazing and memorable moments for me. Between diving coral reefs on the Philippines, seeing the incredible art and architecture of Rome, having beautiful experiences with complete strangers at music festivals, very simple but intimate moments with loved ones and many other wonderful experiences that have formed me, I wouldn't know which to put first.
