About Me


Never deny yourself the beautiful chance to have a jar and dance dance dance


Living in the divine and sexy city of Berlin - I decided the most healthy thing to do was to pick the place I thought was the most exciting and enriching place on this planet and begin my life there- so that is what I done. I have not been disappointed.

I care about 2 things: humanity and this planet, and making sure I can squeeze all the joy out of life.

I like to laugh, dance, drink red wine, spending hours in the country, creaming over the beauty of this planet, politics, life.

I work with an organisation giving global advise on climate change and the social impacts of climate change. I also write articles on border security and human rights.

I thrive off interesting people, good conversation and playing hard.

Pleasure is found in the most simple things in this ever complex and mind blowing home we call earth.


Never forget that life is for playing. Oppertunities are everywhere, fun can be found in the simplest thing, pah ha. Open those eyes.

Empathy. No one chose to be born in the position they and in and no one was born a bad person. Understand people, then mankind can start working together.

Personal responsibility and collective responsibilty are key.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed on couches in San Francisco, Leeds, Budapest, Thessaloniki, Stara Zagora, across Syria and Jordan, and spent 3 months CSing in New Orleans and CSed for 8 months in Istanbul (beautiful but exhausting times). Hopefully I will soon be able to offer a place to other world wonderers.


90% rediscovering the treasures of humanity, 10% reminding you of the annoying side of humanity


Good conversation, interesting people and minds, red wine (lots of it), raving, cycling, outdoor swimming/skinny dipping in cold places, exploring places things and us, respecting our planet earth, reading, empathy, human rights (their quite nice), honest souls.
