About Me


"Finding a way around procrastination, getting the world rid of cavities and learning to enjoy life and not feel guilty about it."


First things first: I'm a nerd, and that's what most of my friends will tell you about me. I'm passionate about learning, I consider knowledge to be not only power, but also pleasure.

Also, I'm an early bird, and a daytime person. Ask me to wake up 4am for a hike, and I don't have to think twice. Ask me to stay up until 4am at a nightclub, and I'll most likely wish you a good evening.

I'm a truthful person, and a trustworthy one, for that matter. I'm quite frank and honest, and you better be ready to hear the hard and cold truth - although, being a lawyer, I can be quite diplomatic when telling you your feet stink.

I'm not the most adventurous person on Earth. I like to think stuff through, and I'm quite attached to the things I do and the people I love. But I really enjoy it when someone can shake me out of all that.

And I talk too much.


Be true, be tough, be kind, and have a good laugh at it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far, I'm just filling this profile in, hoping this will change in a near future.
