About Me

Current mission; Live a happy life

Working as an Sales Engineer in a high tech envinronment, after studying business engineering. During my student time I have been traveling a lot.
Now with a job, which takes a lot of time, I have less time to travel, but I would never give up traveling!
Besides work I like to do sports, every year a new 'goal' to train for. Last years this have been running (half marathon twice), cycling (240km including hills), this year I started something different, Tennis :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Why I am here? To meet new people and help each other.
I started CS in the USA to get to learn some new people, by attending CS events. This was a great start, so I started with hosting, also when I went back to the Netherlands. I have mainly be hosting and attending CS events.


With an open mind, there are (to) many interesting things in the world :)
This is such a wide variety from party to walking in the nature, from sports to have a lazy day at the beach (tough not too lazy).
