About Me


Working on my Ph.D. MY 2nd book while exploring the world meanwhile


I am a professional writer, journalist and artist . I love to meet new people and explore new places, ideas and situations.

I have recently my PhD research. Right now I am working on my second book and my which deals with psychedelic drug research in 1950s and 1960s America. Meanwhile I am also taking a journey through Spain with my Girlfriend Shani, walking the Camino de Santiago and woofing in farms.

I am an open minded and honest person interested in all kinds of people, and in the great variety of forms of living, thinking and feeling. I greatly enjoy good conversations but I also like to go out and have serious fun.


Make the true, the good and the beautiful one and the same

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I move across the land, connect with people and connect them to others - and offer my place when I have one available.

Couch surfing is a beautiful project about building a global community - a new vision for a humanity where people are both global and local, and where communities interact. I love it!


Only good ones. Met amazing people from different places, that connected to me to local culture and communities. There is nothing better then the insider look. CSing is the way to go.


As a writer, I deal with a wide variety of subjects, mostly because I AM really interested in a lot of things. I love nature and I am very interested in cinema, music, philosophy, fashion, theology, literature, Dance, food, Design and almost anything I can learn about. For me, life is all about learning.
