About Me


a ship in a harbour is safe, but ships are not built for harbours


Born and grown up in Berlin
I work as a social scientist and activist, close to empowerment and self helping initiatives in the social and political sector.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, by establishing a fair society it is needed to develop a european and global view. For this you have to travel, to meet people and make connections and friendships. As a not rich person (only in terms of money) we have to establish and to use grasroot structures. One part of it is to offer couches. The other is to get closer to the people all around the world to surf couches and to share experiences.


In the last year i was hosted by some people and i also hosted people


Political topics generelly. All kind of social and social policy affiars, especially the fight against poverty. Right of the city. Housing. Culture, History, Art.
Alternative and grassroot projects, Anarchy, Self helping projects and organisations.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

On a small boat with high waves of a storm on a trip to Corn Island. I feared for my life, but when it was over and we reached Corn Island, I felt like arriving paradise. And this island is almost like paradies.

Teach, Learn, Share

Because of my age i have a lot of experience now. So teaching becomes more and more important to me. But not i a sence people telling how to do, but by working together. And the older I will be, to more I will be questioning.
