About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get an autonomous quadcopter to fly, climbing, and playing my ukulele

ABOUT ME

I like this world I live in, really, it's not just that I feel comfortable living here, but I actually enjoy it... actively! I love simple things like water, movement, colors, laughs and the thousand coincidences that happen every hour and make it the incredible place it is.

PHILOSOPHY

"So whatever you do, don't be bored, this is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I host I try to offer others as much time as possible. I think I would be a lousy tour guide here in Stuttgart simply because there's not much around to see, but I'm always glad to take a walk through the parks in the city and show other people the way I live. In the night I'm always in for some drinks and party. When I travel I do it with a curious spirit and eager to learn new things from the places I visit and the people I stay with, that of course means that I'm also willing to teach others as much as I know.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My former flatmates ( Patrick, Simon and Thomas ) and I have hosted several people here in Stuttgart but somehow I haven't had the time to make many big travels using CS, which is too bad because all experiences I made until now were great.

Interests

I Like Turtles!

... and nature in general.

Rock climbing, photography, and tea are 3 things that make me extremely happy!

I'm learning to play the guitar and the ukulele.

Origami, maths and patterns, evolution and ants, BOOMERANGS and ROBOTS!!! (Someday I'll create the RoboBoomerang and take over the world with it!!! MUAHAHA!!!)

Other people and other cultures unknown to me. I'm a very curious person and always enjoy learning new things.

Dislikes: platitudes, clichés, and bad photography (better hide your pic "holding" the Eiffel tower before sending me a request ;) ). Sitting hours long watching the TV, not caring about what you eat.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Darjeeling Limited (and everything by Wes Anderson), Hero, Waking Life, Seven Samurai, Road To Perdition, Princess Mononoke, and many others.

Books: "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" Douglas Adams "The Importance of Being Earnest" Oscar Wilde "Born to Run" Christopher McDougal "The Bus Driver Who Wanted To Be God" Etgar Keret "Las Vocales Malditas" Oscar de la Borolla "The Art of War" Sun Tzu "Dance Dance Dance" Haruki Murakami

Music: Manu Chao, Kings of Convenience , Whitest Boy Alive, The Beatles, The Magnetic Fields, Fabulosos Cadillacs, Andres Calamaro, The Skatalites, Jack Penate, any "son jarocho"... and so on, i could go for hours.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Well, I actually find my day-by-day (here in Germany with all the cybernetic and robotic stuff, traveling and climbing all around place) pretty amazing. But I think you would rather want to hear about the time I saved that really fat guy from drowning, the time I swam in a river full of crocodiles, the time I climbed 9 hours up a vertical rock wall, or when I was driven through the test track of the Porsche Development Center by a test pilot... yes, those were great too.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach/Share: Climbing, self-made outdoor stoves, unit-origami, a lot about my homeland, my culture, and the places i've traveled Learn: how to cook any traditional dishes, any stories or folktales, how to play the guitar and the ukulele, and so on... in the end all knowledge is valuable!
