About Me


Enjoying life and writing the best music out there.


I'm a music composer writing for videogames and short films. 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.


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

Why I'm on 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.


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


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