About Me


If you're scared of dying you'd better not be scared to live


I'm focussing on my artistic side, with a lot of love.
Like to play my guitar, go to festivals and concerts.
Busy with making, creating, playing, directing and visiting theatre.. anywhere everywhere.

I'm a hugh fan of cats. I drive an old beautifull Volkswagen Beetle, 1971.

I like to spend time with friends, or jet unknown friends. Have laughs, philosophy about life and being. Drink wine, make and listen music.

Red wine, Red wine, Red wine, Red wine, Red wine...


change what you're saying don't change what you said

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


You don't end up in the normal tourist places, you get the chance to meet new people, locals, make new friends. To share culture, interests and to inspire and be inspired! Jam around, have drinks, dinner, laughs!
Livinglife anywhere, everywhere!


I surfed couches in Scotland (1), Ireland(1), Spain(3), Belgium(1), Germany(1) and Australia(5) and hosted a lot of people in 4 years, from all around the world.



Theatre, movies, music.. all in all kinds of way.
Meeting different people from all over the world and talk about the big and small things..
To philosophy about everything!

Music, Movies, and Books

Tim Burton makes a lot of nice movies.... the dutchman Alex van Warmerdam as well. I like art-house movies a lot. Ehm. Le ballon rouge is wonderful. Black cat White cat is one of my favorites as well!
'Hello mister god, this is Anna' is a favourite book..

Music is everywhere. There's just too much. I love music, in various ways. Very interested in world music, folk.. Norway Gypsie, Balkan Beats, African Chill Out, Irish rock.. Wicked Jazz sounds, rock, punk, singer'song, minimal..

The Eels is the greatest band on earth. Or, do I have to say, Mark Everett is a great musician..! He wrote a biography; Things the grandchildren should know..
just that you notice!

oh, and Buster Keaton > Charlie Chaplin

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

on the north coast of Northern-Ireland. Somewhere between Port Rush and Port Stewart, there was this amazing sunset... Never seen anything like that again.

Oh! Once a month, not if you look, but if you really want to see; you can see the moon in a 3d experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Drama!

And if you want to learn a bit of guitar, that's possible.
