About Me


Enjoy living in a foreign country!


An outgoing guy, master student, finishing off my thesis in Leiden. Very internationally oriented with interests in economics and politics. A great love for good films. I'm serious about living which for me means I make an effort to use my time very efficiently! Even though having conversations over a glass of wine is one of my favourite pastimes.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I offer my room for hosting in NL. I am currently in Leiden completing my research project, so would be willing to host if I am available.


My experience is limited to Japan where I hosted Fiona. Though in Belgrade I 'bumped' into a CS meetup and we all had an enjoyable evening. It really made me curious about Couch surfing so I'm trying to go for some actual surfing myself! I am keen to get involved with local groups in NL
