About Me


Mission? What mission? I didn't get the memo.


Interested in many things, mainly creative and artistic. Love to listen to music almost all hours of the day, and I also love to make music. My hobbies are also my profession, so that's why I am a freelance artist. I love to exercise my passion for photography and film-making, taking every opportunity to take amazing photos and videos of the world.


"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." Dalai Lama XIV

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing connects very like-minded people together all over the world. The best way to see any city is through the eyes of its people, and having the opportunity to do this and share each-others company, is a perfect example of how to world should be. You get what you give.. and kindness does not go unnoticed.


Wether it's staying on a couch in Istanbul, or meeting some other keen travellers in San Francisco... Couchsurfing has always delivered. Truly a wonderful experience every time.
