About Me

I just recently moved to Amsterdam to study acting and theater, so let's discover this city together and have a good time!

I love to learn, I want to widen my horizon and discover new things about the world and my place in it.

I like to play music, dance, meditate, cook and tons of other good stuff :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's an interesting way of getting to know new people around the world while traveling. I don't care much for sight seeing, I wanna meet the people in the city, have conversations, share experiences and learn.


My interests are generally creative and artistic.
For the last four years, I've been acting quite a lot and widened my interest in theater. I started acting to improve my interest for magic tricks and illusions, but ended up finding theater more in my taste.

I also play the guitar and piano and I like to write music and songs. I recently started a band influenced by the music of Mac Demarco, Connan Mockasin and Rex Orange County.

My newest project is to write a childrens book while hitchhiking through Europe. It will be about a snail that wants to hitchhike to Ribe (a city in Denmark).

Besides all this, I love socializing and meeting new people :-) Preferably combined with coffee, beer or wine!

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a really broad taste in music from jazz, to punk and classical music. It depends on the mood. Sometimes I wanna go to a techno club and freak out, other times I wanna relax with some smooth jazz.

But here are six of my favorite musicians at the moment:

Connan Mockasin
Father John Misty
Bob Dylan
First Hate
Tame Impala

All books by Erlend Loe are amazing
Fight Club by Chuck something
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
Either Or by Søren Kierkegaard
Narcissus and Goldmund by Hermann Hesse

Richard Linklater's Before Trilogy are probably my three favorite movies

Teach, Learn, Share

I really wanna learn French and any cool tricks you've got.
I'll happily teach you a simple magic trick and share my experiences in life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can offer you an open mind, good vibes, magic tricks, good conversations and whatever gifts I may find for you on my travels.
