About Me

Usually I am a rather quiet guy, who loves to have a good chat and good food, but I am still open to any good party going on. My references will give you a rough idea...

If you want to get into contact with me, you can use my mobile number: +49 176 40111371, but please keep in mind that I'm accepting couch requests only via CS-Message (I'd like to see at least the profile first before I agree to host someone)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I used to organize meetings here in Bremen and in fact have brought the CS community here to life. I used to be a country amb for Germany for a while, but stopped that in 2011 because of time constraints.

At the moment I'm starting to get back to the CS community by hosting and surfing again.

Interests

Interested in anything interesting ;)

Some of my more special fields of interest are modern literature, modern art, playing backgammon, history, religion and making music (I love to sing and sometimes I play the saxophone), and of course eating and cooking delicious food. My kitchen is the place I spend most of my time in.
