About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Loooking for great hosts and hangouts.

ABOUT ME

Travelling has been my life ever since I can remember. I meet great people, I write stories about the places I've been to and people I've met.
A few years ago I left a career I thought was my world but in reality, it kept me away from the world I wanted to be living in. Can you relate?

If I stay at your place it will never be longer than 2 days, and as an experienced host, I know how to respect peoples boundaries.

If you decide to host me you can expect: a clean (well depending on how long I was on the road:-) ) happy, energetic guy who loves to cook, tell stories and hear all about your city or town. I love to go out, to just chill and learn about you and your world. So whatever we end up doing, or I end up doing. The main thing for me is that when we part, we part as friends :-)

PHILOSOPHY

Be good, and good things happen.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I joined couch surfing. a network that will be known as one of the pillars of peace on earth. If we all sleep on each others couches at least once we'll have no need for conflict.

I have dropped a piece of chicken from a messy kebab on the ground and watched in amazement as careless pigeons gobbled them up. I found that to be disturbing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a fitness coach and teach Kickboxing on the Beach in Fort Lauderdale. I can also make authentic Mexican tacos and tie a bowline knot!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I always like to bring a gift to my host. Be it a souvenir from where I was last or most often it ends up being a duty-free bottle of wine that we both end up drinking and enjoying together. So let me know your preference ;-)
