About Me

I love living my life in a playful and adventurous way. I tend to seek physical and mental challenges like different sorts of rockclimbing and walking slacklines in beautiful places.

Currently I am connecting the dots in my life. Unfolding, discovering and discoving my creativity.

What I wish for myself: a simple lifestyle, outdoors, together with friends and companions I meet along the way, interacting with our living environment in a calm conscious and creative way, being inspired and inspiring others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I will share my roof and joy!


It has been years since I was an active CS'er. I have hosted lots of people and surfed a good bunch of couches with beautiful people. I am looking forward to new encounters in our house in Freiburg where I live with Chrissy and Erich, my two dear flatmates who are just as happy to host and meet you.


I love to climb on rocks. I love to slackine, and highline and longline in specific. I love to hang around in parcs and play like a kid, doing acrobatics/acroyoga, making music and juggle. I love to travel through nature by any means.

I have a large and wide interest in music, and started playing (again) guitar, which accompagnies me most of the time when I traveling now.

I love dancing and started doing contactimprovisation.

I am interested in what people can do together, and in how we can improve nature and our living environment by simple and effective means. I attended a PDC (permaculture design course) and aim to practice and learn about Permaculture.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a passionate music lover.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Kafka, Kundera, Godfried Bomans. But to be honest I am a lazy reader.
I love movies, that inspire me and show the unimaginable. Like films from Michel Gondry, Miyazaki. Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog. Julio Medem, almodovar, Alejandro González Iñárritu.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

every highline I do is amazing! driving down Morocco with a van together with my girlfriend. Having lived in a Ghanaian village.

Teach, Learn, Share

Anything really... cooking, slacklining, acrobatics, music, climbing, dancing!

I'd love to learn how to catch a rabbit.
