About Me

Hey there. I am a professor of international relations, former diplomat, and a dedicated father of two grown women. Martial arts were always part of my life, I love to cook and am a certified massage therapist. I have worked in UN diplomacy where I participated in climate change negotiations for 20 years, representing the delegation of the European Union. I am loaded with travel stories and continue to accumulate encyclopedic knowledge of cultures and places. Let's meet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

During my years of working at UN negotiations, I travelled extensively and visited dozens of countries on all continents except Australia (don't take it personally, there are rarely UN conferences es in Australia). This became a habit ... ok, maybe a slight addiction to travelling. You know that feeling when you are walking in the airport with a boarding pass in your hand, heading to another world.
