About Me


See the world, meet great people, stay inspired.


I receive a lot of requests from people who want to stay in Zurich. But I live in Bern, which is an hour away with the train.


Easy going, open minded, radio journalist, swiss, 35 years old, some say I look younger, not really into sports, but wannabee into sports, smoker who wants to quit, gay, faithful, only child, communicative, dog friend.


I try to enjoy life as it comes and unfolds. Staying true and faithful to my friends. And respectful to others. Sounds lame... But what's a "personal philosophy"? It's always hard to describe. Trying to always be cheerful, optimistic and available for my friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing is a great way to know people whnen you travel. And hosting someone is a way to thank the community.


Mostly in the US or hosting people in Switzerland.

Music, Movies, and Books

I see lots of movies, listen to a lot of music (mostly crap, my friends would say... easy listening, lol) and try to read books when there's enough time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Haha... Hasn't everyday a part of amazing in it?
Never been in a plane crash.
Never had coffee with a super star.
Never had beer with a super star.
Never been on the top of Mt. Everest.

I saw a dog waiting alone at a bus stop and getting on the bus by itself this morning...
