About Me


Enjoy the time on this awesome planet :-)


I enjoy the positive things in life, while trying not to take it too seriously :-)
You could call me an "extroverted nerd". So while I love to meet other people and getting to know their points of view on philosophy, politics, life and everything else, you better not talk about fashion or soccer with me :-)


"Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious." (Brendan Gill)
In my opinion the world is an awesome place, and the true way to happiness is to get rid of greed, anger and envy. No time is ever wasted, if you enjoy it with your friends and family!
From a religious standpoint I'm a secular humanist/atheist, and my political views are left/green/pirate. But I love to hang out with all kinds of people to get to know their perspective on life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I mainly host, and rarely surf. My main objective is to meet interesting people and getting to know different points of view.


Before CouchSurfing I hosted a few guests for student friends, who live in dormatories. Since I started with CouchSurfing in April 2013, I hosted around 600 surfers from around the world; some for a day, some for a month, and everything in between. And I didn't regret a single invitation :-)


I love meeting my friends, for cooking or barbecuing together, or just to hang out for a few drinks (cocktails, no beer :-) ). I also enjoy playing in my samba band and going to occasional karaoke events. And since I'm a software engineer I can also descend into the nerd topics if you want ;-) Every Sunday evening we cook with some friends (and CouchSurfers) at my place, and every two weeks I meet with friends for a pen&paper game round. Another big interest for me is beauty photography, which you can see at my website
