About Me


I will be in China for the next two months.


I love travelling, experiencing live music, playing basketball and learning new languages. I am looking forward to meeting people of all sorts.


If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


"Berlin im Sommer kann alles" (Berlin in the summertime can do everything) is what a friend of mine once said and i wholeheartedly agree. But i also know that Berlin can be a bit confusing at first glance so I like to help people get the best out of their time here.

Since i came back from my last trip i needed some time to settle back in and get things going again here in Berlin. For this reason i have not been very active in couchsurfing during the last 2 years. But after some beloved couchsurfing friends visited me here this summer i am again full of excitement for new travel and hosting experiences.


I have hosted people and have also experienced the other side as a surfer on my own trip through south america. So far the experiences have always been good and enriching.


i like to travel, enjoy music and going to concerts, play basketball, learn new languages. I also enjoy the food and drink diversity in Berlin and generally love to discover and explore new things and places.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived in Brazil for some months and had an amazing time.
Went skydiving and enjoyed it a lot.
Traveled on a Tandem bike to the nortern german coast.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some german, tell you about some nerdy computer stuff or show you where you can eat good food in Berlin. I am always interested in learning some new words in a foreign language and to get better at Ping Pong or cooking.
