About Me


World View Expansion, Europe/Africa/Asia


Adventure seeker and living in the moment, spontaneous and fun loving. I'll always try to appreciate all things big or small that have crossed my path in life. Being friendly, communicative, meeting new people and hearing their stories are sources for my inspiration. However, lately, I've gotten caught up with the daily grind of a working life, and have forgotten how big and wonderful this world is. My vision have narrowed and that needs to change! Let's hope I will succeed in doing that.


Wake up everyday with a purpose, refine my thoughts and attitude to this world and be boundless in my mind when dealing with matters in life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I will both host and crash. Be proactive and meeting new people and creating/sharing new experiences. And helping fellow surfers as much as I can when visiting NYC, I realize that having a local and a buddy while traveling to new places make a world of difference to soloing.


Did it once during my France/South Africa trip. Both host were amazing. Now I'm inspired to pay it forward.


Purpose and build - nothing fires me up like a good idea and processes of bringing it to reality
Technology - innovations that improve the world and human conditions.
Music - learning, sharing, playing, enjoying

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

jo'burg, 6/2010 - as I sat on top of a hill and gaze far down to the horizon under a sea of land and hills. A humbling moment, when I realize how big this earth is, and how small I am. There's not much of that reality check for city dwellers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn how to surf, not couch but real surfing... oh and how to race cars.
