About Me

CURRENT MISSION

chase the summer

ABOUT ME

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 easygoing...you´ll have a very hard time picking a fight with me.

PHILOSOPHY

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 compromise...at least on the important stuff like your life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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.
