About Me


Coming soon to a couch near you!


Born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I love the city because it's a great place to start from to discover the rest of the world.


Dance like nobody's watching, love like you've never been hurt, sing like nobody's listening and live like it's heaven on earth

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I met some generous people that lend me their couch when I was stranded in France with no money for a hotel. I decided that my couch would be available for surfing in the future, too.


I enjoy live music. Reading. Cinema. Theatre.

Politics, international relations, environment and development, philosophy.

And of course, I enjoy discovering new places.
