Bonjour fellow Couchsurfers ! I was born and raised in the south of The Netherlands. These days I Iive very close to Eindhoven and Den Bosch. I would consider myself as a honest, helpful and easy going person who likes to explore and meet new people. Others say I am funny and friendly.
My motto: If you never try, you never know!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to help people, that's one of the reasons why I host Couchsurfers! Also meeting new people from all over the world is great! I enjoy learning about other cultures and share stories with people.


- Cooking is what I like to do, I cook with fresh ingredients every day I also like to invite friends and family from time to time to cook and have dinner together. When shall I cook for you ?
- It's important for me to stay in shape and that's why I go to the gym at least twice a week. Another thing I like is running and cycling.
- In 2015 I got infected with the travel virus, I took my first intercontinental flight to a friend in Arizona, US. After a while I wanted more and so I traveled to California where I explored the west coast.
- Music is important to me, I don't like silence so most of the time there's music playing out of the speakers in my house.
- Big Formula 1 racing fan🏁🏎️, there's no race that I miss not even when I'm abroad!

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to volunteer as a Dutch language teacher for over 4 years. So if you are interested I can teach you some of the Dutch language!

What I Can Share with Hosts

- I'm a talkative guy and so I like to have conversations which can be about anything, but also like to listen so not only talk :)
- I will be more than happy to assist you in any way I can!
