About Me


Creating a better world (if only for myself, ok.. and a few friends)


People tell my sometimes I should be phillosopher, but I am really down to earth. Oh, yeah, I am also a nerd, happy in the water, don't like NICE things and am generally speaking sort of ok.


I live while there is no reason for such a thing except chance, this does not say I am a dark person although I can be happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
