About Me

I'm generally pretty quiet. I much prefer the company of people who have exciting, funny or meaningful things to say, not the company of those who seem to talk just for the sake of talking.
I enjoy socialising in small groups, and am not uncomfortable hanging out alone.
I particularly love running, the feeling of being healthy, the outdoors, reading,...
I'm fighting a constant battle to continuously improve my German ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet interesting people.
To help people.
To couchsurf.

If you're a genuine member of the CS community, even though we may not share the same interests, I might still be up for hosting you. I understand that sometimes you just need a place to sleep, and I'm happy to help out genuine CSers if I can.


Keeping fit, laughing, eating, drinking, thinking, hanging out with friends, not destroying the earth.

Music, Movies, and Books

Jimmy Eat World, Sparkadia, Muse, Architecture in Helsinki, Guster, Kaiser Chiefs, Manu Chao, K'Naan, Regina Spektor, Ben Kweller, The Shins, Block Party, Foo Fighters, John Fogarty, Willie Nelson, The Avett Brothers .... The list could go on and on and on.

I need to make more effort for movies, although Super Troopers is a favourite, as is Beavis & Butthead do America. 12 Angry Men is a favourite too.

Books: 'Who ordered this truckload of dung?' - Ajahn Brahm. as well as biographies, Non-Fiction, Wilbur Smith ... could go on here too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've run a sub 3 hr marathon, Munich 2016 :)

My entry here used to be:
After work one day I sat in a tyre tube in a river and watched a snake eat a kangaroo.

Teach, Learn, Share

When you talk, you are (generally) only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new. - Dalai Lama

I've been around the world a bit, and am happy to share my knowledge and experiences, and hear all about yours.
