About Me


Explore, Understand, Enjoy and Love


My family is from Hartberg in der Steiermark but I've lived in Canada for 21 of my 30 years on this earth. Currently teaching in China.


Have as much fun as possible while doing all those life things you gotta do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, smiling a lot, being a good person


When I lived in Vancouver I had some amazing couchsurfers stay at my house with my roommate Jake. They were all rad and nothing made me happier than someone who made me food. These days my place is very small but if someone needs a place to crash here in Shangyu, Zhejiang you are welcome.
