About Me


In the end life is just a story so why not make it a good one?


I work to live not live to work.
My life is divided into periods. I work around the clock for one period and then I live life in 200% the next period. Right now I'm finally finished with my working period and will start my next big travel!


"always do sober, what you say that you'll do drunk"

"Your heart is free, have the courage to follow it"

Solid Advice: Always tell the truth, that way you never have to remember anything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The thing that had the biggest impact on me was being lost in the jungle of Abel Tasman for 2 days without food, warm clothes, cover, gear or any clue of how the hell I was going to get out if there! That's an experience i'll always carry with me.

I aslo had a really scary adventure with an urban exploring-reporter. You can read about it here:

Teach, Learn, Share

I love exchanging knowledge and experience, if you're interested in yoga and meditation I'd love to guide you through a lesson.
I suppose since I'm a professional chef I could teach you a thing or too about cooking. But also I could give some very good tips for you as a restaurant guest, like never order a fish dish on a Monday, why the best day to visit a restaurant is Wednesday and Tuesday and why you should never order your meat "well done"... ever!,
I also know my fare share about food photography, massage and barley legal travel hacks.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Whenever I'm with a host I find new things to learn aswell as new things I wish to share. My cooking is a pretty standard contribution which has always been very appreciated so far. Still, there's so much more to share and I'm always eager to find out what that might be
