About Me

I am a passionate entrepreneur with a love for Africa, culture, music and new technologies that can change the world.

For the past 5 years I have spend most of my time with NGOs working on sustainable development issues.

I love playing music, listening to music, cooking and traveling

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I just spend 1,5 years in the bush and couch surfing seems like a good way to get to know new places and new cities.

Right now I want to explore Nairobi for a bit, think this is a great way to learn more about Nairobi city life

Music, Movies, and Books

Love all music, but my heroes are Jimi, Bob and the Peppers

Have not been watching lots of new movies lately, but im a sucker for good PULP

Best book I read recently; Flow and the art of doing business

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have traveled through Sierra Leone by myself for one month with a backpack and a briefcase filled with money

Teach, Learn, Share

I am all about sharing knowledge and knowledge transfer

At the same time I love to learn from people that were able to put their dreams into practice

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have lots to share, but most of all a good laugh
