About Me


qualify for Boston Marathon


I´m a cheerful, fun, sometimes a little impatient person with a big heart and always keen on making new experiences and getting to know interesting people. That´s why Berlin is the perfect city for me - you got plenty of opportunities here. I love to travel and make friends all over the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can provide you my small couch or a mattress on the floor and if I have time I can show you around in my beloved Berlin. At the moment I´m working at PullProxy, a booking agency for underground techno artists (, so I´m always up to date with techno partys, Open Airs and stuff..


awesome so far


My biggest passion is music (techno, ambient, classical, industrial, italo disco, glamourous indie rock´n roll - check my to see how we match: and my second biggest is sports (long distance running, yoga, fitness).
Plus I´m interested in photography, I´m taking my Nikon or Lumix everywhere I´m going; I love to draw, write or do other creative stuff.. not to forget discussing all sorts of things.. and I love to party, that´s why I moved to Berlin.. with its great variety of people and places it´s the best city I´ve been to so far and I wanna stay here for a while..
