About Me

Right now I´m travelling through some parts of Latin America (mostly Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador and Brasil), in Germany my current mission would be to finish studying and open a restaurant I would say. I also always made music, mostly for myself. Another mission therefore would be to record all the stuff and press it on a CD/vinyl. :)


There is no right or wrong. There's just you and the consecuences of your actions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´ve only had good experiences doing couchsurfing. It´s not just that you can find a place to stay and connect with locals (what´s always better than staying in hostels), but also that you can find people to do stuff together.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really listen to many different kinds of music. It´s pretty hard to say what´s my favorite, depends on the mood and situation I´m in. If I would have to mention one kind of music, I would say I´m really into Indie, Alternative, Grunge, that kind of stuff.. bands I like are Arcade Fire, Bright Eyes, Why?, Timber Timbre, Elliott Smith,... I also listen to a lot of old stuff, some Jazz, Blues, etc. or Hip Hop, depends on the mood.
I also like some "dancemusic", when it comes to going out, partying and dancing, etc... Doesn´t neccessarily have to be "electronic" music, I also like things like Jamiroquai and other funky stuff, but there´s a lot of DJs i really like, because they can generate some kind of journey.

Movies and Books...well, I think the easiest way is to mention some of my favorites.
A clockwork Orange, Fight Club, The Godfather, High Fidelity, some stuff by Bukowski, documentaries and movies by Werner Herzog,....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I´ve loved. Only one time, but with all my heart. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I think these three words express exactly what you do when you spend time togehter. I always learned from every person I´ve ever lived with. Sometimes I learned that I can´t live with this kind of person, but I also learned something. Plus sharing is caring.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I´m travelling with a guitar and a pendrive. So I can share music.
Also I really like to cook, my brother is a chef and I learned some of his skills, I´d say I´m a pretty good cook.
And yea, if we´re living / spending some time together for a few days, we definately will have some deep conversations, if you also like them.
