About Me

I am an austro-czech artist living in Prague a the moment and travelling in summer. Everybody thinks I'm technoviking
If you're writing a request makr sure to write something interesting.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I like to meet new interesting people. I like to travel in an alternative way which means that i also hitchhike. I like to go back to visit people I already met. Staying with people who care about you, and you giving back your strength, feels just so much more human than passing all the time in a hostel.

Interests

I'm an artist so I do art also myself. If you are my host I can draw you an urban sketch if you want. I play the guitar and i used to play the violin. Before I moved to Prague I had a grunge band in Vienna called the Leftovers. I love to learn about new subgroups of rock or world music. It would be great to dive into Subcultre Scenes from your hometown or any other alternative Specialities of your town. In my hometown Prague there is Malá Strana, a special district with a magic dragging artistic and bohemic people, despite the central location. Visit me to know what it's like there. At the moment I very interested into German Klezmer (jewish music) and slovak gypsy songs.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've hitchhiked 2 days from Croatia to France for a festival without a plan how to find my friends. I found them by accident two hours after arriving. It was the street theatre festival of Aurillac

I busked with my guitar on the Rialto Bridge in Venice in a unique time when it wasn't overfilled

I squatted a house in Siena for two nights, because I couldnt find a Couchsurfer nor a hostel

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to learn to play the violin again and I can teach you a little bit how to play the guitar.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd offer you a nice urban sketches from your town to hang in the livingroom and Invite you for a beer or wine. (depending on the country). Nice Conversations about humorestic Stories
