About Me


to start painting, maybe


I'm easy-going, spontaneous but naturally calm. I like simple things in life: a friendly smile, a hot cup of coffee, a cold pint of beer... or two... I've studied film and TV and I'm enjoying the field a lot, my main interest is in documentary films. I'm running a small production company with a few friends. We are creating and organizing things that match our values in this field and life in general. Quality over quantity. I enjoy meeting new people, having conversations, learning to know more about another person(s) and myself. For me listening is sometimes more important than talking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm living with my girlfriend Šárka. Her profile is here ->
After a lot of surfing/being hosted I feel great for having time and chance to give something back. To keep the good energy moving!


I was a member of Hospitality club for several years before moving here. All experiences of hosting and couching have been unique and great!

Music, Movies, and Books

My musical taste knows no boundaries, but I'm into alternative music; no wave, psychedelic rock and folk from the late-60's, post-rock etc.

I like European Cinema. Classics. Documentaries. Experimental stuff. I think that cinema is unique art-form and that films should be watched in theaters. Too bad that it's hard to get real experiences with "we-want-your-money-hollywood-entertainment-3D-extravaganzas" that are mostly shown in theaters today.

I enjoy books by Hermann Hesse, Thomas Pynchon, Albert Camus, Milan Kundera, Hunter S. Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, George Orwell, Alberto Moravia etc.
