About Me


Well... I'm a PhD researcher by day and a musician by night (you know, when the cooler people are fighting evil).

I've been traveling a lot and living and working in all kinds of wonderful places in Asia, Europe and the US - lately I am mostly based in Brussels though.

Just drop me a line if you wanna surf with me - I'll be happy to host you if I can!

Oh, here's the kind of music I make:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosting alot of wonderful people and I had the pleasure of being hosted by so many new friends all over the world!


When traveling through Asia, Europe, and the Americas, i have at least met, sometimes stayed with so many people from cs, and hosted quite a few as well. Not once did I have a bad experience... Seriously - this might be the greatest idea this thing called internet has ever been used for ;)


I am excited about many things. From music, moviemaking, art, travelling, soccer and reading to things like my work. Really hard to point out something in particular.

  • arts
  • writing
  • documentaries
  • movies
  • reading
  • traveling
  • music
  • soccer

Music, Movies, and Books

Trying to list music I like is always tricky. Let's just say I'm into honest music, regardless of genre :)
Here's the music I make:

I've been reading alot of McEwan again lately.
Julian Barnes, Jonathan Safran Foer
Tiziano Terzani

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
