About Me

Musician, teacher and entrepreneur travelling in South America!
I mostly play and teach music. I also did a lot of Entrepreneurship, video work and game development.

Traveling by bicycle or train is one of my favourite things to do.
I'm planning a nomadic lifestyle in a music-packed van in the coming years.

My website with music and games:
Instagram with more music:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I often travel alone to force myself to meet locals. Usually not interested in the big flashy things but rather the small details and their history.

I like hosting last-minute surfers too: I love the spontaneity of it and I've been in that exact situation many times myself!


- Playing and talking about music (I play the drums and piano + composition)

- Using technology to serve education and/or solve real problems

- Bicycle travels, watching landscapes through the window of a train, hiking in nature

- Involved, honest conversations

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I often get kind of bored, placid and too comfortable... I start to think that I've seen everything this planet can offer. And then all of a sudden a fantastic person or a stunning wonder of Nature proves me wrong, brings in a wave of emotions and renews my faith in this world and makes me super thankful to be alive! I cherish these moments of lucidity and profound humanity above all else.

Teach, Learn, Share

music, music theory and improvisation, business, game development, languages I know, tips for traveling
