About Me


I've finished decluttering my life, now it's time to declutter the rest of the world.


I am exactly like George Clooney in Up in the Air, except that my job is not to fire people. Also, I am nowhere as cynical as he is.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted quite a lot of people in Milan, then not so many in Berlin.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to a non touristic island in Indonesia. Everybody loved me and wanted to take pictures with me (mostly girls). A pregnant woman asked me to touch her belly to bring her luck.
The return ticket from the UK was very cheap, I didn't expect it to also include such a huge confidence boost.

Italian language, photography, Photoshop, and surely a lot of other things I can't think about now
