About Me


If I like you, I'll cook for you!


The only constant thing in my life is change. I'm on the move a lot - in terms of going from one place to another as well as changing what I do and work with. I feel a bit spread out all over the place. Which sometimes can be hard, but in the end I wouldn't have it any other way.

I am a photographer and a gardener, I worked in IT but also with unemployed youngsters and on a farm, turning grass land into gardens.

I know a lot of people, my real friends are few. I prefer meaningful connections and relationships to people over superficial niceties. I want the real deal. I like nice people who really care for others.

I like to talk with you about all kind of things. Show me a slice of your life. I'm open to crazy/unreasonable/creative ideas and have passion for cooking and food. We will get along pretty good if you're not a square :) Sometimes it's good to just do things without thinking about the pro and cons. I like to make things work out. And I think that cake is (also) a breakfast food.

You are my flat mate for as long as you stay with me. Some couch surfers actually became long term flat mates. Also I like taking you places you would or could not visit as a regular tourist.


The best plan is to have a loose plan.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Only good stuff so far. Inspiring, fun, honest, crazy talkative relationships through couch surfing. Awesome, true friends. Heck, people I met on couchsurfing become such good friends that they came to my wedding.
