About Me


Im on a Giro d'Italia!

Skiing, ski touring, mountaineering, climbing, sailing, inline skating, mountain biking, salsa dancing, entrepreneurship, politics.


I am interested in other people's thoughts, opinions and way of life. I like to do fun stuff, go somewhere, be active, getting out of the city, enjoy nature. With people, I like to discover common activities, fascinations & view points.


1. A beach, a warm summer night and the deep red reflection of the falling sun on the sea. A cool, easy breeze. Salsa music coming from somewhere distant, the cries of the gulls and the soft sound of the breaking waves. Warm sand under our feet and the sweet fruity taste of our drinks.

2. Snow covered mountains as far as one can see and a cloudless blue sky and a glaring sun. The total silence, the absence of human existence. The measured sound of our furs on the snow. The joy of reaching the peak. Breathtaking view onto a vast rocky wilderness. A descent, foot-deep powder, natural ice and snow sculptures passing by, the untouched snowy slope ahead.

3. The unveiled infinite mountain sky on a cristal clear night, clouds of stars, so many stars.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted CSers in Switzerland and organized a small skiing event for CS, plus we've been hosted during our travels through South America by some amazing people.
