About Me


Get on the road


Eager to learn and hear good stories. Even in chit chat looking for the deeper grounds. Analytical. When the balance is right always in for an adventure.


Try to maintain the state of being in which all my skills, knowledge and talents work best for a healthy relationship with everybody and everything around me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Observant. Opens up in a friendly environment. Helpfull.


Traveled a lot but no couchsurfing experience yet


Any development in the arts and sciences. Being a father to my fourteen year old daughter. Writing stories and directing movies. Hang out with friends in Rotterdam and near the seaside.

Music, Movies, and Books

Wide variety of music I like, but last shows i've seen and liked are the Black Keys, Jack White and The Growlers.
When a movie is well written, produced, acted and shot, I'm in. Okay its not a movie, but Breaking Bad is certainly in that category.
Reading books is for my an opportunity to learn something about mankind and his environment. Celine was disastrous as a political pamflettist but one hell of a writer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Experiencing the clear blue skies in the movie Paris,Texas and checking them out myself a few years later. Becoming a dad and get in touch with my own childhood again.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can share some stuff about filmmaking: producing, writing, directing, editing. Has a degree in philosophy.
