About Me




I´m a 27 year old forestry student, and very social, which means i can deal with everyone pretty good usually. I am a person who really enjoys life, i try to use every day as good as possible, do as much as activitys i enjoy. I dont watch a lot of TV, as its a waste of time in my opinion, i prefer seeing and experience the beauty of nature. Actually i am not a person who feels comfortable in a big city like vienna, i need mountains (love climbing and alpinism) and empty landscapes, but I had many other reasons to move to vienna, so i did. I am a person who cares a lot about our environment, and about whats happening in this world right now. Many questions cross my mind, like what can i do to make this world a better place in many ways? I love any kind of music with soul, not the 0815 crap you see on MTV. There is so much good music out there, not many people know maybe you can give me some good advices ;-).


I don´t really have a philosophy but one is that i want to suck any experience i can get and to grow in my mind. Even bad ones can help you so much, maybe you need a while to realize that. I wanna treat everyone like i wanna be treated, with respect. And even if people think totally different that i do, i wanna respect that, i have to admit its not easy sometimes. I care a lot about our environment, so I try to live in a way, which is not polluting our earth so energy, not eating meat all the time, buy biological products. thera are many ways and i wanna learn more how i can live in a better way for myself, and this precious planet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have met so different and interesting people through cs!it is so amazing to meet people from a other part of the world and to find friends in them! i surfed couches in the middle of a ricefield and in highest peak of a skyscraper. I met people i would have never met in a other way, and i am really thankful for that.
All of my couchsurfing hosts were incredible kind and gave me much more than i could ask for.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I made a 7 month around the world trip on 08, which took me to the most amazing places in the whole world! i was skydiving and hitchhiking in New Zealand, snorkeling and diving in Fiji and Asia, met all kind of crazy and interesting people! I met my wife on this trip and on 2009/2010 i lived 6 months with her in Rio de Janeiro. Another great experience, and i am so thankful for every day, as not many people have the luck to do what i did. All in all on all of my travels i experienced so much which is the best to tell you face to face
