About Me


BIG - A Basic Income Guarantee for all
Plus: some more open science would be nice!


I am excited about a basic income guarantee and other political stuff, neuroscience, beer and I am trying to become an OK vegetarian chef: best thing when all these things come together!

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 the US. I also hosted people when I was back in Hamburg and in Philadelphia and enjoyed getting to know great people via this wonderful network of ours!


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

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived a year in Burkina-Faso, where I worked in a solar-energy project for an NGO called "Solar Energy for Westafrica" (Sonnenenergie für Westafrika e.V.). Tough, but definitely a great experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn: to speak chinese, to play the piano, to juggle with 5

What I can offer is: couchsurfing- and other stories from Westafrica, South and Central America and India, to juggle with 3, to speak and cook German vegetarian food

What I Can Share with Hosts

Bad jokes, mostly plays on words that aren't funny :D, stories about living in Burkina-Faso, awful, but also wonderful stories of living with people in Philadelphia, some vegetarian dishes, excitement about (open) neuroscience.
