About Me




Overall I am easy going, adventurous, energetic-yet relaxed, spontaneous, funny-unintentionally, open-minded, and up for a good time.


go big or go home

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Host and travel


While living in Vienna I have have had the opportunity to host people from all over and have always had an amazing time sharing experiences with new nice and interesting people. It is a wonderful way to make me feel like a local in my new home, as I can be a guide, and keep things new and fresh, as I can share the excitement with people coming to Vienna for the first time. I have also surfed and find it so refreshing and a great way to truly "travel" with the shared information and insights that only a friendly local can provide


Trying new things and getting out of the comfort zone. I like all sorts of sports (snowboarding, surfing, tennis, climbing, biking, volleyball, you name it), traveling, or just hanging out. Good conversations. Good food. Interesting places and people.

Music, Movies & Books

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, The Illuminatus Trilogy, The Prophet are three books I really like. There Is too much great music too mention but I like variety and something that fits the mood. Movies are cool- id rather be living than watching actors live.
