About Me


reading "Infinite Jest"


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 new 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 (https://www.facebook.com/PullProxy), so I´m always up to date with techno partys, Open Airs and stuff..


awesome so far


My biggest passion is music (Disclosure, xxxy, Koreless, SBTRKT or post punk/witchhouse/chillwave like Tropic of Cancer, Joy Division, Mmoths, The Haxan Cloak, XXYYXX, Holy Other and artists like TEED, Simian Mobile Disco, Burial, Thom Yorke, Banks, Hot Chip, Mount Kimbie, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Egyptrixx, Metronomy, Muse (only old stuff!), The XX, Portishead, Jessie Ware and most of all dark techno like Moerbeck, Len Faki, Answer Code Request or Charles Fenckler.. check my last.fm for a better impression on my taste in music: http://www.lastfm.de/user/MaryMalicious).
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 recently.. 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..
