About Me


BIG - Basic Income Gurantee for all :)


Actually I want to travel all over the world to get to know all the people and all their languages. - Since I don't have the money to do that I am quite happy about moving to Cambridge for a start. We will see, what comes next :)
When I am old I want the world to live the idea of a basic income guarantee. If that does not come true, I will hopefully have had a great time and laughed a good deal.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


A year ago I moved to Cambridge and would now offer my couch if there was such thing in a my student cave :) As soon as I get to live in a larger room/apartment I will start offering a couch again, promised!


When I travalled through South and Central America and India I had a lot of really great experiences by crashing on the nicest people's couches from Colombia over Panama and Costa Rica to New Delhi. I also hosted people when I was back in Hamburg and in Philadelphia.


Travelling, discovering the world, BIG - Basic Income Guarantee, yoga, juggling, and any type of neurosciency stuff.

One Amazing Thing I've Done
