About Me


Enjoy :-)


I'm looking for insight. I love to hear how the world looks to other people. I can enjoy just about anything for a time from scuba diving to camping to motorcycling to classes in university, but best of all I love conversation over sangria. I'm originally German but have a Spanish father and lived just outside NYC for most of my life...I'm an architect by trade but have been doing something different every time I've stopped on this trip - Bartending in New Orleans, Construction in Colorado, and hopefully I'll be a fisherman when I get to Chile :-)


It's not what you look at but what you seeLife is the mind creating itself

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


visited 47 states (20.8%)Create your own visited map of The World or Free ipad travel guide

I share and learn - I feel the best way to learn or to know is by word of mouth. Couchsurfing lets me learn the way I prefer even in places I don't yet know anyone. I want to go where you are and learn to love what you love. I want you to visit me and see why I am there. I surf when I travel and I host when I don't. I organize events when it feels like a good time :-)


The world has become smaller and fuller since I joined couchsurfing. I've met so many beautiful people and we are so spread out it's wonderful - like a global family.
