About Me

I was born in Berlin, grew up in Hamburg and spent almost 15 years in the UK, 13 of which in London.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Through living abroad I became more and more cosmopolitan. I'm naturally drawn to international folks and I'm interested to hear their stories. I think it's a great resource to meet people and I believe you are much better able to explore a place if you know someone who knows it. :-)


I'm just super curious and can be interested in almost anything. I would say my top five at the moment are (in no particular order) contemporary art, cooking, design, tech and science.

  • culture
  • performing arts
  • design
  • fashion
  • contemporary art
  • music festivals
  • cooking
  • coffee
  • music
  • history
  • languages
  • science
  • outdoors
  • tech

Music, Movies, and Books

I read mainly non fiction. But I prefer documentaries and podcasts.

Again with music, I love a wide range. I'm pretty eclectic.

Movies ... probably leaning to the art house stuff. I love science fiction, which I redefined as "fiction with science in it". I'm more interested in ideas than prolonged battles, though. Also, I can sit probably through the most boring art films in galleries - I studied it. ;-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To me little things are amazing. Life is amazing. I'll tell one amazing thing over a cup of coffee.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach, Learn, Share? Not quite sure what I'm meant to write here ...

Can I teach you something? Probably. Learn? I learn all the time. I love it. Probably my biggest regret is that I'm unable to learn everything. Share? Yeah, good idea. The world needs to share more. But this is getting into politics now ...

What I Can Share with Hosts

Ideas, killer recipes, a joke, my views, my language, travel tips, knowledge, interests, other skills ...

Countries I’ve Visited

Andorra, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, United States
