About Me

I study Culture at the Distance University of Hagen, Germany and do quite some sports. 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 grow up on a farm in a small village.
For some people it might be important to know, that I'm gay.

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.


Studying. I like to learn lots of different things.
I'm curious about technology, science, philosophy and society.

Sports: running, biking, kung fu, bouldering. Sometimes: swimming or ballet.

I play theatre and I like to dance - but I'm dancing rarely these days :-/

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Surviving Tokyo for 5 weeks without any money (I lost my credit card) - the best 5 weeks in my life.
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.

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.)
