About Me

Well damn, that is an open question. Im a pragmatic, honest, easy to handle, philosophic young man. I'm sometimes a little straight-lined and fastly bored of shallow small-talk. I'm going to try to define my character by telling you what I do!

In my free time I love to explore the internet, books, games, music, movies and series, nature, sports (everthing ending with -boarding (except water-)), other countries, new technologies and doing social stuff with my family and friends.

I'm a software engineer who has just finished university this year ('16) and tries to use theoretical knowledge and achieve some more practical knowledge.

Right now I live in Ulm, or to be more specific, on the island in the Donau right between Ulm and Neu-Ulm. In case of a zombie apocalypse, you will be more or less safe over here! If you want to sleep at my couch, don't expect too much attention please, because I work every day of the week from the morning until the evening. But we can eat something together, and hang in our garden right at the Donau, and in the morning you have to leave (Exceptions could happen on weekends).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Basically, because it is such a cool concept. It is the human in it's center, not the money. This is awesome. I only used it once yet to sleep in Oldenburg at Dietmar's House, and it was a truly great experience!
