About Me


Hack your (political/social/computer/...) system. Make it transparent, emergent, amazing.


[This section intentionally left blank. Take your time to form an own opinion.]


Insofar as we can affect the world, let it be to utterly eliminate guilt and fear as a motivator of man and replace it cell for cell with love of one another and the passion of creation.
Well and maybe: Fuck it, we'll do this live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer you a place to stay. In return I'd just ask you to feel like at home.

By that I mean that on the one hand, that I'll try to do my best to make you feel welcome, and you absolutely don't have to ask for permission to use anything or do anything in our house, assuming you're a considerate, adult person.

It also means I may not have the time to play host. I'm usually happy to hang out, or show you around on a walk or hike if I do, but I can't promise that here and now.


We hosted quite a few amazing people in our places in Berlin and Norway, and occasionally swapped apartments with others for the holidays (aka home exchange). Even before that, I have been active on hospitalityclub.


- Paragliding (PP5/PI), Vol Biv, Climbing, Slackline, Highline,

- Open ended reality games (, Journey to the End of the Night, Geohashing).
- Languages
- Cooking
- Table tennis, Cross country skiing, Foosball
- Fabbing (3D printing, creating, concept art)
- What you can teach me
- Traveling: Dopplr used to say that my personal velocity is about the same as a duck; I'd say it varies between lame duck and migratory bird.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Digital nomadism with two toddlers, living in places instead of 'just visiting'.

Teach, Learn, Share

Languages. Slacklining. Cooking. Digital fabrication. Disruptive thoughts. Compassion. Paragliding.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you are traveling with kids, do come and say hi. Our place may or may not be big enough to host all of you overnight, but we are always happy to hang out - our kids are '2015 and '2013 (last I updated this 4 and 2y/o).
