About Me


Enjoying my life!


I love soccer, music, going out, good restaurants, traveling, enjoying a nice summer evening outside in Gent with friends (if you come you will know why).


Don't live to work, work to live!

voor de Belgen; "Leef niet om te werken maar werkt om te leven." (stond geschreven in het Nederlands op een tegeltje op de trappen van Selaron in Rio de Janeiro, think about it)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just tell people about CS, that they really should check it out and that they don't have to be afraid. It's the perfect way to meet new people and learn more about their culture.


I did quiet a lot of CS during my travels in South America. I also received a lot of people, from all over the world, in my apartment in Gent.
Embrace the world! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I love electronic music (techno, house, minimal, everything with a decent beat and bass line)
I can really enjoy a nice reggae band, especially when it's on a beautiful beach.
Here in Brazil I like the samba "beats", pagode, etc..
I also like salsa.
The only genre I still have to get used to is Dubstep.. lol
