About Me


Making people smile!


I grew up in Belgium, Antwerp. I used to be the kind of guy who never wanted to leave my hometown - find a job, settle down, never leave Belgium. About a year ago, after my Erasmus, all that changed. I found a job in Lisbon as a computer programmer and also stumbled onto an amazing apartment with a beautiful view over the river. I've been helping out at two of Lisbon's coolest hostels (Living Lounge and Lisbon Lounge hostel) ever since, meeting travelers from all over the world every single day. I've grown addicted to the smiles and the peace of mind that constantly seem to be around these people.


Live your life with a smile on your face, make people happy, and try not to piss off Chuck Norris.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a couch (read: extra unoccupied bedroom) available for anyone who wishes to use it.


Hosted a bunch of people so far and it's been an amazing experience - everyone has something to teach or contribute.
