About Me


I would like to travel around the world, but this is only a dream at the moment. In real life I'm working, working, working ...


I'm originally from the eastern part of Germany where I also studied renewable energy engineering. Now I'm living and working here in Bern since May 2009.
And I have to say I love that place and I really enjoy living here.

I'm spontaneous, open minded and a person who could nearly never say no to a invitation to a party, a bbq, just a drink,...

In my freetime I like to be in action and outdoors, especially in summer.


Enjoy every day of your life, it could be your last one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to travel, get to know to other cultures and meet new people from all over the world.
Couchsurfing is the best place to combine all of these.


I started couchsurfing when I came to Bern because of my job interview. I stayed in Bern for more than one week at three different couches. Over the years I got some real good friends because of it and surfed a lot nice couches at beautiful places.


meeting people, partying, travelling (now in summertime with my motobike), etc.

So all the things nearly everyone like.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived for half a year in South Africa.
There is a quotation from a film, I'm sorry that I didn't remeber the name. But the quotations says that if you once lived in Africa it will never release you.
