About Me

Due to coronavirus I must make a selection of guests. Please drop me a line anyway.



To enjoy life by living today and traveling as much as possible.


I am a sporty globetrotter; after travelling around the world with my partner, I have set base in Lausanne where I presently live. I work in electric aviation and aerospace and in my spare time I run a podcast called Job Tales (

I would like guests who have jobs that can be interesting to other people, so I can interview you . But also any traveller is welcome to my place, of course.

I am looking for a way to travel and do sport 24/7. Hate to stick to a 9-5 job. My heart and family are in Rome, but I feel I don't belong to one place; I have found in Switzerland a location where I can rest and prepare for the next travel adventure. Fall 2021 I will be starting a PPL (Private Pilot License) and the Swiss citizenship procedure. And it will be the longest time ever spent at a company (3 years). That's as settled down as it gets in my life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have always embraced the travel sharing philosophy of Couchsurfing, way before CS was born. I am member of, which promotes travel for the promotion of peace around the world.
I love to meet people, and prefer CS over hotel or airbnb, when possible.


I love extreme sports, film, expeditions to unusual places (like the 2cv rally in Africa, trekking in Sierra Leone). I love freedom and traveling, and I like to meet new people all the time. I love stories people tell. I love the human texture of life.
