Refugees welcome, Nazis not.
I'm currently founding a company to provide assistance with meetings of all sizes - and founding a company is work. A lot of it.
So I only host, when I have some time to spare. I rarely have much time to hangout. If you stay with me, be prepared to spent a proper amount of time on your own. I may have some time in the evening/night or morning to chat or have a walk but that also depends a lot on my schedule.
Besides the work I study culture at a distance university. Sometimes I feel like a philosopher, sometimes like a scientist and sometimes like an artist. I often think about how the world works and how I want it to work. Rarely I do nerdy things with computers and once I was a politician.
I am gay and grew up on a farm in a small village.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'm generally pretty open about myself and can imagine very few questions that I will not answer.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm fascinated by different cultures and different people. Sometimes I like to travel and usually I do it by hitch-hiking and couchsurfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A lot of hitch-hiking-stories e.g. through the Australian outback and around Europe.
I've been a board member of a young but (at that time) sucessful political party (the pirate party). I learned a lot about how politics and public debates work. It was a very intense time.
Surviving Tokyo for 5 weeks without any money.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach: how to hitch-hike, how politics work and how to cook improvised food.
I studied philosophy, cognitive science, maths, computer science, culture and chemistry so far. So there are lots of scientific things I may teach you - but mainly I'm concerned with what science actually is. How it works and what methods are used. (Now it's getting philosophical …)
I want to learn: Japanese, Arabic, Mandarin, playing the guitar and singing. But I really have no idea how to use my voice for singing and I feel little embarrassed about the idea me practising.
I want to improve: French, Spanish, Python
(If you're Spanish or French you're very welcome and please push me to speak French/Spanish instead of English.)
