About Me


Change the world to the better - wherever you are and whatever you do!


I am a positive affective person who loves to smile, to travel and to meet people from all over the world with diverse backgrounds and cultures. In my spare time, I love being outdoors and to do sports (running, cycling, wind- and kitesurfing, salsa, snowboarding or scuba diving especially with sharks). Most important for me are family and friends, nature, sunshine, happy people and music. Life is a big gift!

Wir müssen nicht immer den kürzesten Weg nehmen. Lass uns lieber einen Weg wählen den wir gerne gehen, lass uns freundliche Begleiter mitnehmen zum Schwatzen und Lachen, lass uns wunderbare Pausen einlegen. (Jochen Mariss)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


There are many different ways in which I participate in couchsurfing: by sharing my smile, telling my travel stories, meeting for dinner, showing people around - These are just a few examples.


I met amazing peole on each journey - this really changed my life. One tought me how to break an apple only with my hands and a clear mind. An old man told me about his impressive life. A wonderful family invited me for breakfast on their boat. I stayed in a one and a half million dollar apartment and elsewhere on a chicken farm. Another interesting CouchSurfing experience for one night: 4 flat mates, many friends and 12 backpackers - having a huge party, sleeping in the bath tube, on the table, in a tent in the garden :) Nice chaos...
I am very thankful for all those experiences. I have found some really good friends on the other side of the world. CS brings cultures together.
