About Me


Try being a good father

Indy and Wesley are twins, born in March 2011.
They are happy children and enoyed every couchsurfing
experience we had. They like to make new friends, especially
if they are children of their age!
The twins speak English very well and they understand some French.
The children sing in a little choir and are also member of a scouts group.
They also going to swimming lessons!


I am fully dedicated single father.
I am a software engineer, now at ASML
I love traveling but have to reinvent traveling now I am a father.
I love to meet people all over the world.


Be open for any type or way of live.
Live simple, I don't need many 'things', I need 'people' to enjoy live.
Nature is exciting for me, and a place for rest and reflection.

I live a simple live in a modest home.
I have no TV (but have internet)
We have a garden with some chicken.

Currently I am preparing the top floor of my home for guests (not ready yet).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We would like to meet families with young children. At the moment I cannot host anyone yet, but this will change next year or so when I will upgrade my house a bit more.
