About Me


Going with the flow


I am a positive person and am interested in other people. When I go to a place I like to get to know it through the people that live there. I'd rather sit in a cafe an afternoon than rush through the whole city.


If there is no hope, we must invent it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In the summer of 2008 I had my first hosting and surfing experiences. I really like the whole idea of CS, it is the perfect cultural exchange!


I like to play basketball a lot, I love modern art and yoga. I like to read, and also like to party from time to time! In summertime I like to visit music festivals (Sziget in Budapest) and in wintertime I love to go to concerts. I often volunteer during film/music festivals.

Music, Movies, and Books

Electro, techno, house, music from all over the world, indie.

I go to the cinema to watch art house movies. I don't have a tv!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the sunset at Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro. Living in Complexo do Alemão.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to eat tipically Dutch cookies (stroopwafels!) everyone seems to love and to ride a bike in the city centre of utrecht, it's an extreme sport!! I can also teach you how to whistle on your fingers.
I want to learn about photography, gardening, healthy eating and living in other countries.
