About Me

Curious, creative and passionate about traveling. I'm an explorer who likes to visit places with a rich history such as old towns and abandoned buildings or enjoy the beauty of nature. I like photography, videography and 3D modeling/printing.

In my day to day life, I'm a content-marketeer for a 3D printing company Ultimaker. Luckily, my work includes lot's of travels.

I enjoy road trips and bicycle tours a lot.

Big fan of home parties, movie nights, board game nights etc.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

While my home is far from finished, I can likely host some people. I have a small private gym where people can put an air matrass on the ground. One day I'll get one for Couchsurfing. :)
Also, I like to go to meetings and add to the fun.

Creative stuff:
Photography and video creation are big passions of me. I also do 3D modeling/printing. Always into sharing info and experiences, learning, teaching and perhaps do a mini collaboration project?
