About Me


Enjoy the world


I live in Amsterdam for almost 11 years now. I recently moved to a new house just out of the city center together with my girlfriend Madelon. While I work for a global consultancy firm, she works for a governemental agency. I play tennis or squash whenever I can and I try to travel as much as possible. I like going away for the weekends and experience a new city somewhere in Europe.


I try do do things in my own way :-)

Treat others, they way you want to be treaten yourselves...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted several people in my Amsterdam apartment, which is quite large and therefore perfectly suitable for hosting! I try to give my guests tips for off the beaten path experiences.

Also, when going abroad, I try to meet local CS people to get a good impression of the place and culture!


I couchsurfed in Torino, Italy during the winter Olympics, which was my first experience with CS.

After that I met CS people in Ukraine, Moscow and Germany.

I have had a few couchsurfing guests, but as I have a busy working life, and people tend to mail on very short notice, I am not able to host that often.


Traveling, sports (soccer, tennis, squash), reading, adventure

I really like photography during my travels!
