About Me


to find out what it's all about


i love travelling and meeting new and interesting people! i'm currently living in stuttgart, just completed a master's degree in organic agriculture and food systems... and now its time to move on to the next adventure!


live and let live... treat others as you like to be treated... what goes around comes around... you must be the change you wish to see in the world ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


joined CS a while back, had some great surfing experiences! when I first moved to germany, i started the Ulm vegan and vegetarians club, but havent been active since I moved... and i've been so wrapped up in grad school the past couple years, but hopefully i'll have more time now for hosting, surfing and getting more involved with the CS community!


i love CS!! =D =D


got too many... i'm into environmentalism and a holistic way of thinking, the blend of science and art, biomimicry, permaculture, sustainable agriculture, left-winged/progressive politics, localized economy, farmers markets, natural medicine, nutrition, vegetarianism, macrobiotics, going to cafes, biking, rollerblading, ice skating, graphic design, photography, drawing, knitting, journaling, children, friends, dancing, clubbing, partying, travelling, experiencing different cultures... happiness and love!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

hmm... what comes to mind: the frontier of a heavy rainstorm unexpectedly rushing towards me while I was wading in a shallow stream, raindrops splashing and chasing me faster than i could possibly run, and then getting instantly drenched... reminded me of the overwhelming power of nature

Teach, Learn, Share

i like to cook (vegetarian, vegan, macro or raw style) ...
