About Me

**Important** If you don't read my profile in full, especially House Rules and Additional Information, I will not respond.

I will need you to be vaccinated to host you.

I live in Attard, in the centre of Malta (not the seaside Sliema area but more inland).

As host, I will likely open my home to you, and enjoy your company at home, but am unlikely to go out exploring with you as after work I usually prefer to stay in.

When I travel I go for city breaks in Europe, especially northern Europe, visiting modern art museums and the main attractions and just having coffees and watching people.

I'm a foodie - especially for Asian food, and like meeting my friends for dinner. I therefore know quite a lot about where to eat what in Malta.

People say I'm witty, and I like to make people laugh. I am also very direct, and not always diplomatic, but that's me being honest. I am also empathic and care about other people.

I work from home and am an investment analyst. In my free time I draw digitally and also create 3D images that I publish online. Subjects are usually athletes (drawing from photos and from real people I meet) and am experimenting with some storylines, maybe to do short comics in future.

I was born in Germany, but have lived in Malta most of my life. I am half German (dad) and half Maltese (mum). They were penfriends

I work in investments research and issue opinions on investments I graduated in finance and later got my ACCA (accounting).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I have done is to start travelling alone.

A good decision was to open my home to my flatmates and couchsurfers (yes I live with other guys but the place is mine).

One amazing thing I've seen: having a waffle stolen from me by a massive seagull. It swooped down and crashed into me and flew off with my waffle. That was on the pier at the theme park in Stockholm.

Making friends with a random guy at the Berlin airport. The conversation started about luggage weight and we're still friends to this day.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can explain accounting and investments to you if you like. I can give you any information about Malta. I can teach you how to draw a human figure digitally by hand. I can teach you words and sentences in German, Italian and Maltese. I can correct your English if you want, so you will learn from your mistakes.

Learn: About your culture and getting to know new people.

Share: Check the My Home section on the things I can offer my guests.
