About Me

I am an activist and storyteller living in Amsterdam, trying to capture everyday moments that tell the story of us. I write about social trends, feminism, mental health and love. My photography looks at the moments between moments, at what happens when we wait. Check out some of my work at

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet people that have an open mind and love to travel and discover new cultures.


I write, take photographs and make up songs which i try to play on my violin or on my piano. I am a climate activists and I'm looking into how to use my creativity to raise more awareness on climate change and humanitarian issues.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love all music, from classical to alternative, from techno to folk. At the moment, I am listening to a lot of 80's R&B/Soul music like Chaka Khan or Earth, Wind & Fire and I have Saint Etienne's Foxbase Alpha album on repeat.
I am an avid reader and right now I am working my way through an anthology of Kathy Acker's work who I recently discovered and absolutely fell in love with her powerful writing.
I used to be obsessed with Tarkovsky and Milos Forman movies. Now I am obsessed with Amy Schummer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed the Himalayas.
Accidentally ran into the mayor of New York City, Bill De Blasio, while smoking a joint in Brooklyn.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My passion for the arts, music, using science and technology to connect and mobilise millions of people, how to be a responsible human living on a planet we are only guests on.
I will also very gladly take photographs of you.
