About Me

Hai everybody... Hi doctor Roel (pronounced as; 'rule')... Welcome to my page. I'm a 28 year old filmmaker who's loves to travel the world and meet intresting people. My current job is being a teacher at film and television community college. It's a very challenging and rewarding job.
Grew up in a small dutch village and moved to the city when i was eleven. Home is not a place anymore, it is a state of mind. You take your home with you, everywhere you go.

I only accept last request for one person, one night. That being said, I'm not obligated to take you in on those therms. Sometimes life stands in the way and i can host you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Cliche answer: I Love it to meet new people. Changing in differente perspective will grow a human being. Couchsurfing is a exiting and adventures. So i really love these kind of things. Also, opening my house for travels feels good for the soul.


A lot! To many to write them al down. But I'm not going to bore you with boring stories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've travelled with a homeless for a couple of days. Have traveled from California to New York, 25 other states, 8000 miles. Seeing the sun going down in the Grand Canyon. I made 4 films, with one broadcasting on Dutch television.

Teach, Learn, Share

A can teach u a lot about art, Humanitarian rights, films, teaching children and little thingies about life. But I learn more from experienced (from other people).

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can make you a hell of a pannecake. I can share pro-tips for filmmaking and directing. I always want to have a good conversation about politic, philosophy, art or just about life. And - if I have the time - I can give a great tour around The Hague.
Also, a lovely couch to sleep on.
