About Me

easygoing, friendly, caring, fun, old but young-at-heart, open-minded, respectful

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

to meet new people from all over the world, discover new places and cultures and share everything I know and love with other people.


I adore photography, languages and exploring new countries. I am always eager to learn new things and like to share my interests with others.

My favourite novels are Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Jude the Obscure, The World of Yesterday, 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in 80 Days, Anne Frank's Diary, the works of Michel Houellebecq and books about photographers and photography.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did an internship on a farm in Romania.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you German and probably some English, since I was born and raised in Graz, Austria, I can tell you a lot about the city and the country. I can also show you how to take good pictures and how to develop analogue film, share my knowledge about photography, music and movies. 🙂

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my flat close to the centre of Graz, my company if I don't have to work, I can show you around in Graz and if time allowes, we can also go on trips by train or my car to other parts of Austria.
