About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Seeing as much of the world as possible, be as fit and happy as I can whilst trying and meeting new awesome people.

ABOUT ME

I'm a music composer writing for videogames and short films and I am studying to be a software developer. I try to get inspired by everything around me and the people I meet. I'm looking to share and experience life and it's beauty. Open-minded, a bit strange and always willing to do some contemplation on life.

PHILOSOPHY

It's not about what you encounter in life, but how you deal with it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would really like to host travellers, but my current situation does not allow it. I'm more than willing to show people around the area.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had a few couchsurfing guests sleeping over in the past. It was a nice experience to get to know new people from different cultures and it's always a pleasure to help people out.

Interests

Travelling, music, philosophy, reading, having discussions and trying to make the world a little nicer for everybody.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Bjork, The War on Drugs, Frank Zappa, Maurice Ravel, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Neil Young.
Movies: La Vita e Bella, Koyaanisqatsi, Garbage Warrior, Documentaries.
Books: Khalil Gibran, The Music Lesson.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the Canadian Rockies surely is on the top of my awesome-list. I'm always torn between seeing new places and traveling back to Canada again. Man, that was some beautiful stuff!

Teach, Learn, Share

I try to be as non-judgemental as I can and try to see beauty in everything around me. For me, the most important thing in life is your attitude towards it. Almost anything can be achieved with a positive mind.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can give hosts a great time with thrilling stories, I'm always in for some physical activity and like to grab a drink now and then.
Though I'm a little insecure about it, I can play guitar and even sing you a song!
