be sure to include a link to your profile and whatever you would include in a regular CS request.
----> this is oldish information, i need to update this eventually, but it may still give you an impression of me.
I love Vienna and know my way around quite well ... I love giving tours of Vienna and know lots of interesting little facts and stories ... if you want a tour Id enjoy doing that.
Also, go ahead and read my references (Though like most references they are biased and overly positiv - note that i can be an irresponsible pain in the ass as well)
you can check out my myspace to find some additional impressions on me:
Also i play/participate in several bands/projects
(to name the two that i am investing the most work in at the moment)
I am currently studying international economics in Eisenstadt, close to Vienna but I will either be moving back to Vienna or possibly to Maastricht next semester.
In Summer I usually work as a social worker in northern Germany.
I grew up half american, half austrian, though now I guess I am slightly more austrian than american - though sometimes I wish it where the other way around.
Ive lived in many different places - the longest permanent adress I have ever had though was in Vienna.
I also have profiles on StudiVZ and Facebook, though I dont use those networks a whole lot, so they are probably not very informativ...
... no idea. i am not big on commen moral cliches. i tend to do things my way ... i guess thats something witch many people like about me and a couple of people. well. dont.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
- Connecting travelling music
- Spreading the word
- Setting up events for CS Artists and Musicians
Since my travels usually are very spontaneus and irratic i have not actually done that much actual "CS" Couchsurfing. My best couchsurfing experience ever though was in Bucharest, where somebody i met in the subway and asked how to find a hostel ended up hosting me for a weak :-)
I have had guests who have become good friends, i have hosted perfect stranger not affiliated with CS or HC and who i have never heard of again...
I have been to HC meetings in the baltic states, i have met most of the Belorussian CouchSurfers (at least the ones from Minsk :-) My first ever CS Couchsurfing experience was in Berkely CA.
I hosted the Couchsurfing/GigSwapping event in Vienna and met a bunch of amazing Couchsurfing Musicians...
Couchsurfing defnitly adds richness to my life.
- Music (Listening, Playing, Recording, Management)
- Sci-Fi (Reading, Watching, Collecting)
- Kayaking (White-Water and Seekayaking)
- Board games (Playing, Developing)
Music, Movies, and Books
Fav. movies: Avalon, Existenz, Mullholland drive, Naked Lunch, Knocking on Heavens Door, Broken Silence...
My music taste has changed a lot lately ... i used to be into all kinds of metal Black, Folk, Industrial etc. ... lately my favorite bands are Jaya the Cat and Sublime ... i also like lots of elektronika (chemical brothers, Air, Prodigy to name some acts...) and i am also into Klezmer and all kind of european and eastern european traditional music.

Most recent book i have read is UBIK by Philipp K. Dick... and for some uncanny reason I think there is another book out there, that is amasingly similar. The whole "half life" concept... im sure i have read about it in some other book as well... and some of the characters seem really familier... anyone know why? where i might have read it?
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
