About Me

Hey there, my name is Joel and I'm 29 years old and after studying computer science I started to work in IT project management this year.
I'm an open-minded person and always like to hear new stories from different countries/perspectives :)
Valuing tolerance and supporting the LGBTQIA-Community is important for me 🏳️‍🌈
In my free time I like to play beachvolleyball and badminton, to have board game evenings with friends and I also sing in a choir.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it is a really great idea to get to know the local people and also you can get a very different and way more interesting view of the places that you visit.
Also I like to discuss any kind of topics with new people, because I think it's really interesting to get to know a different point of view of a person who might also live in a different country than myself.


I really like to do sports, especially beachvolleyball, badminton, table tennis and spikeball/roundnet but actually I'm in for any sporty activities.
I enjoy to have board game evenings with friends and also have a big collection of board games at home.
I also like to read, listen to music and to meet and exchange with new people.
Going to a club and dance is also nice from time to time and I also sing in a choir for more than 5 years now.

Music, Movies, and Books

For music I mainly like indie/rock but I also listen to many other kinds of music.
Some bands that I like to listen to: Halestorm, Madsen, Bukahara, The Pretty Reckless, Linkin Park, Billy Talent, Die Ärzte.
I'm a big fan of fantasy books and thrillers.
