About Me


Trying to get through the semester while enjoying life.


I am all about meeting new people, being active outdoors, and playing music. I love all fascinating aspects of our planet and nature.
I love to get to know various attitudes and ways of life.


Live life to the fullest and don't watch the clock; do what it does - keep going!
Aim for the moon, even if you miss you'll become one of the stars.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to travel and to get an insight in local culture.
I love to host people in our house where I live together with four other sexy graduate students who are happy to meet new people.


In 2009 I spent a great day&night in Alicante, Spain couchsurfing when I was on a trip to an animal shelter in Andalucia to volunteer for a summer.
I just got back (Jan. 2013) from an amazing trip through the beautiful state of Colorado together with a friend. We stayed at a couple of couches and met fantastic people.


Our Planet, people, cultures, nature, life ...
Sports (running, paddling, biking, snowboarding, swimming)
Music (playing the trumpet in a funk band, guitar and singing)
Animals (I'm absolutely nuts about dogs and pretty much any creature)

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading books about the environmnent and society, about politics and the economy, and about great expeditions and adventures in remote regions.
I'm all about music and going out to little life concerts.
TV is not a big friend of mine.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This would be a great start to get into a fascinating conversation ;).
Some might say it is amazing that I do a lot of trips together with my dog. Generally, I think you can make almost everything you do an amazing thing, it's all about attitude.
