About Me


chase the summer


Eish I´m not exactly good at describing myself...I think. A lot of my life is about the movies, I make movies for a living and love to watch them obviously. Aside from that I´d say Im a nature person....I like to experience new things, love adrenaline, love party but also solitude sometimes...a bit moody, but always very´ll have a very hard time picking a fight with me.


I recently read somewhere: If life is a catwalk - run like a dog. I really think thats kinda been my philosophy all along, not in a hectic way, I havent quit school at 13 and started doing drugs that kinda thing, but subtly...I dont do things that everybody does just because everybody does them...don´t least on the important stuff like your life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well I offer my couch obviously, I like to show people around in my city as well, I meet new people through CS everywhere I go, and I spread the word!


So far I hosted quite a few ppl at my place and it was always a great & enriching experience. One of my favourite surfers ever even became my roommate - how cool is that?! As for surfing, I have "surfed back" with some people that visited me, I went to Paris and made new friends there,and I got a glance at the very active and great CS community in Vienna. I love couchsurfing, it is the best way to discover any place and make new friends that usually change your life for the better at the same time. Wow.


Movies, the sea, foreign countries, nature of all kind, alternative lifestyles & peoples stories, wildlife, photography, cars & technology (strangely enough), environmental awareness...I guess the list goes on...and something is added almost everyday :)
