Join Couchsurfing to see Eric’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a masters student at the University of Munster. I'm studying Visual Anthropology. I've worked the past few years as a documentary filmmaker. I'm currently living in Berlin, but recently I spent the last five years living and working in Tokyo, Japan. I'm from Colorado, USA originally.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because I'm a masters student and I'm poor :( But I also like the idea of a community that helps others, paying it forward. And if you have a cat or a dog, I really want to make friends with them.
I'm focusing on filmmaking now, but I started with analog photography and it's still one of my passions. I'm also an avid cyclist, especially mountain biking. I'm from the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, so I'm generally interested in mountain sports and activities.
