About Me

Life's better with dogs, airplanes, and chocolate, and a boarding pass in-hand. These things don't always fit together perfectly, but I'm trying to find a balance. :)

Update: I forgot pancakes. They make the world go round.

My response rate is presently a little low: apologies! Work has become very busy for the last year or so, but I have pockets of downtime with availability. Please don't let this discourage you from sending me a request. I'll do my best to respond!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I used to live out of a suitcase full-time for a combination of work and adventure travels -- and CS meetups were a big part of my social life! Something weird happened: I grew up, settled down, and bought furniture. I still love to meet other travelers, both on the road and here in my adopted home of Munich.


I'm passionate about technology and its ability to improve peoples' lives. Naturally, I work in this field... but also have fun playing with gadgets outside the office.

For the rest, I'm interested in politics, world events, bicycling, and I really love dogs.

You're most likely to find me enjoying the life Munich offers (parks, cycling, cafes, restaurants, music, etc) in the evenings and weekends.
