About Me

I quit my job in 2016 to build an app to teach English... while traveling the world. I've been mostly living from Berlin, but I have also spent two months in Taipei and month back home in Melbourne.

In 2010 I spent six months traveling, which included three months learning Spanish in Bogota. I travel whenever I get the opportunity. I love skiing and hiking. I love learning languages, about other cultures and... well learning in general.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host when I can and attend CS events when I´ve got the time.


I´ve surfed on some couches when I first got to Salt Lake City and also hosted. I've been to couchsurfing events in Mexico DF, Amsterdam, SF and Bogota.


Skiing, travelling, teaching, learning.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
