About Me


Writing my bachelors thesis and traveling the States


I was born and raised in southern Germany in a small town.In 2004 i moved to Kampala ( Uganda ) with my parents where i went to school and met some of the nicest people ever.In 2007 we moved back to Germany where i finished school.I then moved to Berlin for civil service.Now i am done with civil service and just started to study agricultural science at the Humboldt Univerity in Berlin.I am usually up for everything, especialy funny and stupid things ;)i am quite active and i love hanging around with my friends, chatting and having some beer, at the same time some days i never leave my house and just stay in bed all day long...

I started to go dumpster dive in january 2012 because there is so much great stuff which is thrown away and now i have so much great food and at the same time i safe food from the trash, so if you are interested i can take you to "my" dumpsters :)

I also stopped eating meat and i am a happy vegetarian now :)


Think less, stupid more !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I lost my CS-virginity in Austin few years back. After that i surfed during my hitchhiking trip through the western balkans to Istanbul and now i host in Berlin, go to meetings and show people around.

So if you want to surf at my place or go dumpsterdiving with me send me an e-mail and i guess we can arrange something.


So far Couchsurfing was an excellent experience to meet other people, their cities or countries and get in touch with locals.
