About Me


Cliffdive in every country I visit :)


I´m a traveling craftsman. That's a medieval tradition in German speaking country's.
After your apprenticeship as a craftsman (like carpenter, bricklayer, roofer etc.) you have the possibility to go on a traditional "journey" for at least 3 years and one day. This is to improve your skills, to learn more about culture and the world and to see how things in other companies/countries are done.
I'm a carpenter and on the road since over 4 years.



Nothing is free!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Since I live in this tiny village in the middle of nowhere, nobody wanted to surf my couch yet.
I surfed some couches and went to some CS meetings. So much fun!!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived for 2 month on a self supporter alp in Switzerland. I helped building a new roof, insulated by sheep's wool. We slept in yurts and it was so nice to live with the people up there!

Heard coyotes howling in Canada.

Saw the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean at the same time, Volcán Barú, Panama.

Run a Marathon, Freiburg, Germany.

Dived the 20m (65ft.) cliff in Cenote Ik Kil, Mexico

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you some carpenter skills. Or we could speak German or Spanish together. If you want to learn how to juggle I can give you some tips, too.
