About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling and finding out if I can move to Canada or the States to get a project started.

ABOUT ME

I am a chunk of idealism and a slice of skeptic mixed with a dose of zen..,I will always pursue the good things that inspire me and think it doesn't really matter anyway, knowing that's o.k. too.

I thrive with periods of being a hermit, a good listener for heartfelt stories and still learning to dance as wildly in public as I do at home.

Next to building engineering and design I have worked as a visual artist, a photography & film teacher for kids and helping the elderly with their basic needs.

PHILOSOPHY

be monkey, do zen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Living in Amsterdam i host occasionally and have refreshing vibes break up the practical day to day..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Some minor bumps yet mostly filled with laughter, warm stories and good food.

Interests

Music, healthy food and candlelight dinners, potlucks & bonfires.

Combining ecological & modern design. Nature & stillness, running in the forest while it rains, yoga and taking naps on delta sound waves.

Live music and occasionally go dancing on warm 4x4. I enjoy a hoppy beer, red wine & old cheese or a good whiskey.

Music, Movies, and Books

[MOVIES] Last year I've have hardly seen any movie, my all time favourites are Stanley Kubrick, Jim Jarmusch, Akira Kurosawa, Tim Burton, Coen Brothers & Jim Carrey.

_MUSIC .. Lately I really enjoy Nicolas Jaar and his label, Acid Pauli, Martin Stimming's organic deephouse and Ane Brun & Lhasa de Sela for some melancholic wandering.

..BOOKS: I have books on architecture & ecological building, cooking, food, health and spiritual stuff. I like to read social and psychological novels.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know 30 or so yoga postures and loads of wonderful music. I can go on all night about modern & ecological design.

I would love to learn how to ride a horse.
