About Me

I'm talkative, active and creative. My passions are traveling, hiking, snowboarding and skating. I care about people. Friends and family are important to me. I am good at staying in touch.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to host people and occasionally, I surf on couches. When I'm on holiday, I also like to meet up for a coffee or tea.


When I go out, I prefer things like: go for a walk, visiting friends, open air cinema, skating events. At home, I spend a lot of time making websites, redecorating my house and playing piano, accordeon and guitarre.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all kinds of music, not some specific style. I also compose some music myself. I like arthouse movies and a romcom once in a while so that I don't forget to believe in fairy tales. I usually read books about psychology or physics.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycled to Paris with a friend, hitch-hiked through Europe. More amazing things would be welcome.

Teach, Learn, Share

Able to teach Dutch language, mathematics, physics and engineering. I would like to learn French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish and Slovenian.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Venezuela, Zimbabwe
