About Me


i am a radical, an anarchist in both the building new institutions and the destroying old decaying, horrid ones sense of the word. i want to understand this crazy society i was born into, in the process of overhauling it.


i can be very serious at times, and very playful at others. i prefer long, focused conversations to party chit-chat that is constantly interrupted. i can make a game out of anything, and have an infectious laugh. i take people seriously, and think that caring about the people close to me is essential, probably the most important task of being alive.


self-reliance, mutual aid, autonomy, self-defense.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i travel fairly regularly, and whenever i'm settled enough, i love hosting folks and learning more about where and what they're up to. i believe in networks and mutual aid.


rostock, warsaw, krakow, helsinki, cape town, istanbul, dubai, muscat, doha, bucharest, athens, thessaloniki, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

traveling through kenya on top of a cargo truck, with 25+ somalians, for 36 hours over bumpy, dusty roads, only to reach the ethiopian border and be turned away.
twice having a 3 month unlimited eurail pass and zooming about the whole continent, from narvik norway down to sicily, through romania to istanbul and lots of places inbetween.
sleeping on top of table mountain.
