About Me


Arrange backpacking trip in West Africa


I'm a recent graduate who is living and working in San Francisco. I'm originally form Germany and like to travel a lot and get to know new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Used couchsurfing the first time in Nepal and ended up extending my stay from a few days to two weeks. It was a great experience living with a friendly Nepali family.


I'm currently looking to take a trip to West Africa in the Summer. Hit me up if you want to join me.
