About Me

CURRENT MISSION

enjoy and learn

ABOUT ME

Hi!

Call me Niki, Niko or Nik, depending on what language you talk or which suits you most. I m born Austrian and I just started PhD degree doing something which I call Computational Biology.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to be humble and respectful, learn from others, see things the way they are, accept the unknown and the uncontrollable, enjoy, go with the flow / be like water - all at the same time...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Little, too little...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Once in Basel, Switzerland. Was really great!

Interests

I can be easily motivated for many things, especially things I haven't done yet. I tend to do a lot of sports and to go outdoors, I love Capoeira. Starting from that, I also love dancing and music. However, I most of the days do statistics and the like. Seems like I can be serious, too - and mostly enjoy it. Finally, I imagine myself less fun to talk to about cars, fashion and apple products apart from apple juice. Not yet at least.

Music, Movies & Books

Those I remember to like:

Books: Mahatma Gandhi's autobiography Zorba, the Greek

Films: Fearless, Into the wild

Musik: All kinds, really ALL kinds. I think music is an art form and so every music style is interesting, even if it is not beautiful. And of course my current musci preference depends on my mood.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

hmm... traveled Brazil and India, learned Capoeira, made people dance at parties, Vipassana meditation...

Teach, Learn, Share

I will go with the sharing - when I share I learn and teach - that's best. So I like to share doing stuff, in particular, doing all kinds of stuff. And especially, stuff which involves sports, laziness, the outdoors, the indoors, ridiculous fun, and/or serious discussions. Most importantly, I like to share with people.

Countries I've Visited

Brazil, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, India, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Austria, Canada, Switzerland
