About Me


Living in and enjoying Malaysia with my family!


Easy going, flexible and open-minded guy. I can get along with most people and hope that this means they can also get along with me :)

Traveled and worked throughout Africa and India and living in Malaysia now.

...Saying hello to freedom, adventure, new places and cultures to explore, and to what life really has to offer apart from the western world.


Live your life to the MAX, explore, seek adventure and enhance your experiences!
And ofcourse respect the people, cultures and religions you come across.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Spreading the couchsurf word, surfing, hosting and occasionally organizing a couch surf event.
I believe couchsurfing is a blessing to everyone who has the will and is open to new experiences with interesting people.


I hosted people in The Netherlands, hosted people while living in Lusaka, couchsurfed throughout Africa in every country I have been to, organized a CS event in Lusaka and met up with a lot of interesting people.

From sleeping on the ground, drinking from coconuts, and eating self made octopus soup on Mafia Island to 4 days of partying with a Mozambican pop star without letting me pay for anything! From having your own room and bathroom to sharing a house with a Tanzanian family of 9 people and sharing a bed with your host......

This is couchsurfing for me!

Teach, Learn, Share

CouchSurfing is all about exchanging knowledge and experiences so I am promoting the Couchsurf philosophy everywhere I go. Apart from that I can share a lot more..

I am fascinated about peoples lives and cultures and would like to learn a lot from that.

Be yourself and enjoy life!
