About Me


Let my roots grow a little.


I love simple life, interesting people, and fresh fruit and vegetables. I adore my wife. I believe humans are inherently good. The trust I have in my relationship with what I call god (you can call it whatever you want) allows me to live a beautiful and amazing life.


Live life and love it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mostly hosting in a "free hotel room" style for now - usually in exchange for catsitting so my wife and I can get out of town. Honestly, you don't have to worry about a perfectly worded couch request. I care more about the dates, references, and if you like cats.


Couchsurfing helps my faith in humankind. I enjoy immersing myself in cultures different to mine and allowing the experience to change me a little, and couchsurfers help me do this. People who are willing to open their homes and have conversation with someone new give me a positive view of who we are as a species, and chances of meeting kindred souls through this site are very high.


I collect coins: if you surf with us and you are from a country of which I don't have the coins, I will love if bring some with you. I have other interests too, including humans, meditation/yoga, freediving, plants, sun, photography, and painting.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just one? Oh, no. Many more...

Seeing the beautiful way children are raised by the whole community in a township in South Africa, watching the moon rise over the Mediterranean in southern Spain, walking through the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona during a lightning storm at night, partying for four days of New Year's Eve in the bush with crazy South Africans, visiting Auschwitz in Poland, Mamayev Kurgan in Russia, Statue of Liberty in New York, Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, growing my own vegetables, tracing my family history and visiting those places, my job (better left for private conversations), and many more...

Finally feeling a connection to an actual place in the world - Berlin.
