About Me


Wake up like a flower


I have a great appreciation for people who are genuine and try my best to do the same. I hope to make meaningful connections and share tales of the road and any accommodation or inspiration I may be able to provide.

I love music, coffee, and conversations. Talk to me about literature that makes you think or philo/sociology or vegetarian food or your vinyl record collection and I'm sure we'll get along just swell.


Be real.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mostly involved with the social side of CS: social activities and meeting new people. Citizens of the world unite!


Surfed with friends in Copenhagen and Gandia, Spain. Was quite involved with some community activities in Berlin. I've met many incredible individuals through CS and am always keen on meeting more.


Reading, writing, musical activities, crafts, discussions, walks, cooking and enjoying food and drink, contemplating on mountains and beaches, breathing, digging life...

Music, Movies, and Books

Current tunes of choice, just to name a few: Neil Young, The Doors, Sly and the Family Stone, Cat Power, Bon Iver, Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent, Mathieu Boogaerts...

Great books I have read recently: "Demian" by Herman Hesse, "Norwegian Wood" by Haruki Murakami, a fat anthology of Steinbeck, Kerouac's "Lonesome Traveller"...

Waking Life is a film that changed my perception of reality.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

Breathe. Dig. Dream.

Write every day and sing your soul from the tops of mountains!

We can discuss literature, philosophy, the human mind, capitalism (and how we can slowly break down "the system"). I can help you learn you French or work on your English. We can dig in the garden, or just drink coffee on the terrace. I will cook you a meat-free feast or polish your toilet. I can serenade you while washing your dishes.
