About Me


Have fun and share the fun with others.


Dutch fella living in Arnhem. Been living here for half a year. Before this, I lived in Germany (Emmerich) and Engeland (London).

What I am: Talkative, creative, curious.
What I like: Traveling (bicycle, airplane), photography and video, digital arts. Formula one and racing. Movies, music and to socialize. I like (private) parties, have a drink, go wild or lounge a bit. I can easily adept. I like to learn, I like to listen. I like to expand my horizon.

Other hobbies: DJ-ing, bass-guitar and clarinet. Grafitti, stencil art.


Traveling: as far as possible, as extreme as possible, as locally cultural as possible and as impossible as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can host people, but bare in mine my apartment is small. You'd have to like these kind of situations. It's quite personal, but of course you have full privacy when needed. Here, I will respect your preferences.

Also I like to go to meetings and add to the fun. I will add to the meeting. :-)

Creative stuff:
So you're traveling and/or around and you like to be creative? Good! Why not spend the night thinking of awesome idea's and DO SOME?! A short 2 minute movie. An interview, a photoshoot or anything else. I mean... we prolly just met so the possibilities are endless. I think mini-creative projects are fun and cool. If we're surfing anyway... why not? :-)
