About Me


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


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.


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 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.


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

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!
