About Me


To see the world from a couch and host the world on my couch!


I love to travel! I am a tall, goofy, fun, outgoing guy who really enjoys new places, new people, photography, a good local bavarian microbrew and conversation with other fun people! What better combination of those things than couchsurfing!!!
As for my background, my mom is from Germany and I grew up biligual and have traveled to Germany multiple times, specifically the Nürnberg area and know it pretty well. Ich spreche natürlich auch ziemlich gut Deutsch!
I haven't seen much of the World yet and figured now would be time to do so!
I also have this urge to make it to Ireland and Cuba in the near future and hope that this will become a reality! I have heard awesome things about couchsurfing and love meeting new people from different cultures and different places of the world!
I offer my couch near the city of Nürnberg, Germany and a tour of the city and all it has to offer to anyone and everyone that is interested in visiting! I am very familiar with the area and can definitely show you a great time during the day or the nightlife of downtown NBG!

See as much as I can with the time I'm given!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I will do my best to offer what I have to travelers and show them the best time possible in my current city (Zirndorf, Bavaria). I hope to be couchsurfing in the very near future!


I have so far surfed in Chicago and had some amazing hosts while I was there!
I have also since surfed in Stockholm, Sweden which was a total blast and a half, had a great time!
Since I have hosted quite a few at my old place in Portland, OR USA and I have only had great experiences!
I constantly look forward to meeting new and exciting people through surfing and/or hosting!
