About Me

Currently living in Strasbourg and working at the Council of Europe. I'm travelling a lot for work and volunteering around Europe, however if you catch me on a weekend I'm in town I'm happy to host folks and show them around.

I'm into hiking -if you stay with me I can show you bita of les Vosges and the Black Forest and if I stay with you I'd love to discover the countryside near you.

Don't hesitate to bring your climbing shoes when you stay with me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I prefer to have experiences with locals when I travel and as such I'm happy to provide this to other people as well.


I'm into anything outdoors; mainly hiking and wild camping and I'm happy to share this with others. I'm also really into beer and love to try local craft breweries and to make my own beer

Music, Movies, and Books

Rock, Indie Rock, folk Rock etc etc.
Frank Turner, The Gaslight Anthem, The Maccabees.

Not so much of a movie buff, a feel good comedy will do. However when other people introduce me to great pieces of cinema I'm always happy.

Recently more into non fiction; I really enjoyed my degree, so I read a lot of politics based books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I managed (just) to visit every European Union member state before Brexit.

Teach, Learn, Share

I spent some time teaching English in Slovenia, and I would be more than willing to help you with English too. I come with a native accent too.

I love to cook, so if you want to teach me your local dishes, I'd love to lean.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Evenings spent chatting rubbish over a beer are the best for me and I'm always open for meeting new people and seeing what happens.

Similarly, I'm capable of entertaining myself if my host is busy and I'm very happy to cook and share food.
