About Me

CURRENT MISSION

giving the world something back

ABOUT ME

I'm a very humorous person. I like to hang around and joke. I'm a person with which one can do every nonsense, but I also need my time alone to get energy.

Apart from this I'm studying civil engineering and infrastructure management. When I have finished with the study, I like to do the plannings and construction of high speed trains in Europe. Maybe also works about the waste disposal and the water supply. Actually, everything that belongs to the infrastructure.

The most important thing in my life is the music. I play piano, guitar, oboe, horn and a little bit accordeon. I'm in the local music club playing oboe and horn. Sometimes, when there's good mood in the evening, I'm sitting outside with my guitar and just play.

I grew up on the country and so I'm not very used to live in the city (but I'm getting used to it more and more) so I love it to be in the nature. I spend much time hiking in Austria. So if you want to see more than just another city, tell me.

I'm very interested in travelling. In 2009 I was living in Bolivia and was doing my alternative civilian service in a school called "Granja Hogar". I worked there as informatic teacher half a week and the remaining time in the agriculture.

So if you want to share a room with me, tell my why you want to do this ;)

PHILOSOPHY

...the world is owned by liars...

but someone has to begin to change it - many drops of water can fill also a whole glass

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can offer a couch when I'm in Vienna.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've very good Couchsurfing experience in Austria and Bolivia. In Austria a few times I was surfing and I've hosted a few people in San Ignacio de Velasco, Bolivia.

Interests

playing the piano, guitar, travelling, meeting new people, science, infrastructure, high speed trains, waste disposal, water supply, architecture, to go out and have some beer with others.

Music, Movies & Books

I'm interested in all kind of music, dependent on the current situation. There are / have been great musicians in the world like Freddy Mercury,...Queen is one of my favourite bands.

I don't watch TV. "I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book." (Groucho Marx)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The best thing I've ever done is my work in Bolivia - to live in a country where friendship and hospitality still exist. In Bolivia you don't have to arrange a meeting for saying "hello" to your neighbour, in Bolivia you just do it!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play the most importand chords on the guitar. With only four chords (nearly) you can play all campfire songs. Afterwords you get the "campfire diploma" :D
