About Me

People say I'm quite chill and calm.
Been living in Amsterdam for a few years now

Playing music is always a great idea! Till recently I was playing with my band in Amsterdam. We did a few gigs and recorded some songs :) Incase you wanna check out - Art School Ghouls

I also love photography and especially enjoy wider framed street photographs. Always looking for fun interesting photographers to learn from.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Started with the spirit of seeing the life hidden in cracks of the society...and to make friends of strangers that i meet.


I am fascinated with human nature, and its interaction with itself and the nature beyond itself. I like to be outside, preferably playing with fire - read, making a bonfire - on a mountain or in a non-city. I have been in living in Amsterdam for a few years and it perfectly gives me the feeling for that...a non-city not the mountains :) I am rather low-key usually reading or making music or taking photographs but also quite fun and quirky in the right setting.

Music = a 60s kid

Music, Movies, and Books

The Doors,Pink Floyd, Hendrix, Cream, CCR, Beatles, and anything to do with a bunch of people coming together to play music. Over the last few years I have come across some amazing people who have introduced to lots of new sounds.

Always open to listening to new tunes and styles from different parts of the world - Ali Farka Toure, Tommy Guerrero and Playing for Change

The Unbearable Lightness of Being
The Lazy Man’s Guide to Enlightenment
One flew east, one flew west and ‘One flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’
...and a handful of many more that i've read over the years.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Peel Slowly and See :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I have been told by some of my starving guests that i make excellent pancakes :)
to laugh
and to chill out...part sleepy, part lazy.

Always happy to play music together, and if you like happy to make pictures too

There’s so much to learn from our interactions with nature.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Jokes about the futility of our efforts, shallow meaningless small talk, and maybe some music if we have a guitar :)
