About Me


Being young, exploring the world


I'm a short blonde German, living in Seattle right now, working as an Au Pair. I see myself as a very easy-going, downt-to-earth person and I'm up for pretty much anything. I love to travel and meet new people from all over the world - I mean why else would I be using this website ;)
My plan is to study medicine whenever I'm back in Germany, but for now I'm just being young and enjoying life travelling the US.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I went couchsurfing in Vancouver, Canada with a friend once.
I think this community is just amazing, I mean, why would you let a stranger sleep on your couch if all the payment you get is some story of their life?
I love travelling, I love meeting new people and if I had a couch to offer I would gladly do so!


I'm in love with music! I started playing the clarinet 10 years ago, taught myself to play the flute, the guitar and the piano (of course only basics, I'm no Mozart) and I very much enjoy to sing. Of course I also love to listen to music, especially rock.
I'm also in love with sports, especially soccer (yay, Germany!). Back in Germany I used to both play and coach soccer, here not so much. I really enjoy watching all kinds of sports, especially American Football, Ice Hockey, and like I said, soccer.
And I am a big fan of groups and communities, especially international ones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Jumped out of a plane at 13,500 ft and enjoyed 60 seconds of free fall and an amazing view of Northwestern Washington! :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Always eager to learn new things! I would love to improve my cooking skills, never really had the time to do so.
I really enjoy learning to play new instruments, taught myself to play the flute and some guitar/piano, would love to share that knowledge :)
