About Me


Observing and exploring the world around me!


Drama art school. I'm in my third year there. And an amazing journey for me has started already. The direction I'm in is called 'Performance' which means it's about contemporary theatre. It isn't necessary to create a play that is completely coherent, life isn't coherent as well. What drives people in doing the things they want or why would they prohibit themselves from doing it? The more people I get the know the more I discover that everybody is an incredible ingenious construction of memories stories characteristics and desires. Eveybody is a walking novell with some extraordinay highlights they'll probably find rather normal since it's 'just' part of their life.
With the whole mediatisation of communication there's a huge number of different ways to have new contacts all around the world, like CS for example, but to me there's still nothing like a face to face meeting.


My high school was a period of six years and even though parents tend to say those were the good years I couldn't wait to have my diploma. Everyday I cycled the same way to school and at a certain point I decided to try and see someting new every day. Could be the architecure of a house or listen to the morning symphony of the city. What I'm trying to say is that I don't want my life to be a 'if only I were there, being this or that' without remembering if I turned off the gas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A while ago me and some fellow student made a short documentary about hitchhiking, it was part of a film project in my school. Warned and prepared we went away for 3 days with no clue of our destination. 3 days and over 2000 km through France later I had experienced so much hospitality, kindness and generosity that if I can return that providing a place or a nice conversation for anyone else it would be more than my pleasure!


so far hoping to bring some nice stories to you soon:)


Everything I'm interested in? That's a big question to answer in this white box. The first thing comes to mind is that I always try to visit the musea in the places I visit. And I love to cook dinner for my family and friends, especially in the summer when we can sit outside the whole night.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently I'm reading In Babylon by Marcel Möring, the story of the Holland family. A slightly absurd but amazingly written book! Although my favourite book still is The Orange Girl by Jostein Gaarder. A philosophical fairytail. I don't have a particular type of movie I like, I always like it when friends recommend their favourite films to me and tell me which parts they like, because they know those films by heart and always know interesting detailes about it. When it comes to music I'd say David Bowie and Tchaikovsky, not the two most likely to find having tea but my two favourites.
