About Me

If you would ask my friends, they would say that i'm a very friendly, helpful but very funny person.
I'm always looking for interesting people and great adventures because i love traveling and getting to know people from other countries and cultures. I'm very open minded.

I love to go Surfing, longboarding and snowboarding, of course. Making music and photography is another thing i love to do.

I work as a streetworker with heroine addicted, mostly homeless people on the streets of Berlin and i really enjoy it. Why? Because they can tell a story and mostly made mistakes in their life and are willing to tell you about them so you don't have to do them your own.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed several couches. Every couch was great and so was the host too. I've offered my couch several times and i think i did quite well being a host. I alway try to give a different perspective on my city besides the beaten path.

Music, Movies, and Books

Film:
I love sarcastic and ironic movies as like as Team America, Kill Buljo or "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"

The Simpsons are great and Southpark too

Music:
At first it must be called like that (music) and you've to hear something when theres no electricity around. What means i don't like techno, house and electro.
I love and enjoy playing the guitar and lately i got into Ukulele. Singer/Songwriter like Frank Turner or Jeff Rowe are awesome. Punkrock was my first love and still is!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One thing I can remember was meeting the "Dalai Lama" in Berlin... this was a very special moment.

Or when i was on Big Island, Hawai'i and we had an earthquake in the evening. At first we thought something big ran into our house but on the next day one of the guides on Mauna Kea told us what it was. Nature... Awesome!

The third thing is surfing. Trying to fight against your mind and waves. But if you've made it, its unbelivable riding those waves...

Teach, Learn, Share

As I surf since thirteen years, that could be something i could teach. Another thing i could share is a great time with me and photography.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I really appreciate hospitality and like to cook. I have a couple of dishes and cakes up my sleeve i could prepare and sure I can share stories of my travels, my life and experiences.
