About Me

I'm an open minded person and respect everyones own opinion and individuality. I enjoy being in contact with people. Different cultures always interested me and I'm exited to learn more about the world and it's inhabitants.
After a year of volunteering work at a school for children with special needs I started studying special education to become a teacher myself. I give drum lessons at a music scool and I work with refugees from all over the world in a Charity Organisation.
Now finished university, I'm working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean Sea as a dive instructor for some months just before I'll start my job as a teacher for handicapped children back in Germany.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host because I think I'm lucky to be able to share and there's no reason not to do it. I'm a guest because visiting a place means for me also visiting the local people and I think Couchsurfing is a good possibility to do so. Also I like being independent of accomodation costs and like to travel low budget.


I love the sea. Fishing, scuba diving and waterskiing are my favourite water activities. I'm a drummer and I like music a lot. Mainly I play jazz, funk and soul but for me any kind of music is fascinating.
